I love having a routine. I don’t operate on a strict schedule, but instead have in mind a task list (or to-do list) for myself. There are things in a day that we all routinize, like getting ready, having a cup of coffee or tea in the morning, washing dishes, cooking, etc. For me, when any part of my routine gets interrupted, it often causes a disturbance. Sure every once in a while we need a change. A little bit of adventure here and there doesn’t hurt like going on a nice vacation. However, when car trouble or a lost wallet or cellphone occurs, the adventure suddenly stops. These types of life hiccups are an annoyance that no one really likes, but does happen from time to time, which is why I’m so ecstatic to find eligibility for online or mail-in driver’s license renewal! My license expires in two months and I was not looking forward to going to the DMV and wait for hours at a time only to deal with a jaded employee. It’s one of those simple joys that makes me so happy because it doesn’t interrupt my daily routine. More importantly, it doesn’t interrupt my working hours because to me, it’s so important to be a reliable co-worker. No one wants to pick up the slack of another person who can’t hold their own, especially a person who’s never in the office for personal matters. Yes we all have personal matters to attend to, but it’s important to show reliability as well. Reliability equates to trust. If you’re constantly gone, what makes you think your co-worker will trust you with work? Just saying.
