Rule 10: Never let anyone know how hard you work

Top Comedia Gbenga Adeyinka 1st (R) Aviation Expert, Dr.  Peter Obafemi (M)with Blogger, GDA 

Look
at someone like Richard Branson.  He is
always seen as playing, flying balloons, living on a converted barge, flying to
the States.  You never see him sitting at
a desk, answering phones, doing paperwork. 
But at some time during his working day that is exactly what he must
do.  We just don’t get to see it. Thus we
think of him as the business playboy, the happy-go-lucky entrepreneur, the
devilish entertainer.  It’s a neat image
and one that he seems very happy to go along with and why not?

This
is the sort of image the intrepid Rules Player wants to cultivate – suave,
easy, relaxed, languid, in control and very chilled.  You never run, never panic, never even seem
to hurry.  Yes, you may stay up until the
early hours of every morning but you will never admit this.  Yes, you may work through your holidays,
weekends and days off, but you will never let on, never moan about how hard you
work or the hours you put in.  To the outside
observer you are coasting, taking it easy, taking it all in your stride.

“Yes, you may stay up until the early hours
of every morning but you will never admit this. 
Yes, you may work through your holidays, weekends and days off, but you
will never let on, never moan about how hard you work or the hours you put in”

Obviously
to be able to do this you have to be very good at your job.  If you ain’t, then you’re going to come a
cropper trying this rule out for size. 
So, what do you do if you aren’t very good at your job?  Burn that midnight oil again getting good.  Learn, study, gain experience and knowledge,
read, ask questions, revise, swot and cram until you do know that job inside
and out.  Do this first and then you can
swan about looking cool and very relaxed
There
are a few rules within this rule:
·                   
never
ask for an extension of a deadline
·                   
never
ask for help: never admit that you are out of your depth – you can ask for
guidance, advice, information, an opinion, but never help
·                   
never
moan or complain about how much work you have to do
·                   
learn
to be assertive so you don’t get overloaded – this is not about letting others
know how hard you do work, but you don’t have to overdo it and overwork
·                   
never
be seen breaking into a seat
·                   
Always
look for ways to ease your work load unnoticed of course – and ways to speed
things up.
