Blog 3 Working Hard for the Wrong People

Hard worker? I have always considered myself to be a hard worker. I get paid to do a job I accepted to take and I’m going to do my best. At a hotel I use to work I was responsible for setting up the complimentary breakfast buffet. Usually potatoes, bacon or sausage, and scrambled eggs. I was also responsible for taking care of cleaning tables restocking silverware and napkins. And to the best of my ability get customers what they wanted, the GM told me “always have a smile and do everything the guest want” so I did. Their was also times when the cooks and dishwashers wouldn’t show up so I did their jobs too. When I worked at UPS I got loader of the month. I also got small rewards weekly for reaching company goals for miss loads (miss load goal was for 1 out 3000). I worked in the evening loading packages into the back of freight trucks and tractor trailers. Wow bragging about being the loader of the month is like bragging about getting an A in gym. Who cares?

Every place I have worked at co-workers and supervisors have told me I’m a hard worker. My problem is that I don’t work hard for myself, I don’t do the extra things that I should to make my life better. I went to school for marketing but I haven’t been able to market myself to get a job. I tried to go back to take classes In accounting but that was boring at as shit. I rather watch paint dry at least with watching paint dry you don’t figure out what’s an asset and what a liability. How do you “work smarter, not harder” if your dumb.
