When you are at work how hard do you work? Do you like to be efficient? Do you like to skive a little? Do you daydream at work? Is your job demanding? What type of worker are you?

I think i'm a hard worker i was always told to do my best! When your working whatever the task time goes quicker if you are kept busy, and its nice to be appreciated from whoever you work for, some days are more demanding than others but i keep a smile on my face knowing at the end of the week i get paid.

When I was working yes I worked very hard. But there an advantage to that if I got my work done early I had the rest of the day to full around.LOL

I am a good worker. When you pay me a wage I do my best and strive to make you look good. That only benefits me anyway. I am fully at work and problems stay home. Unless I am sweeping or mopping then I can ponder things and maybe work them out a bit. I am not a daydreamer and anyone would be glad to have me when they do what they are supposed to do. I earn my wage!!

Well I would love to give you the politically correct answer - that I love my job, and work hard etc. But the fact is - that would be a lie! I hate working! I do it for the money, no other reason, - and although I do work hard and put in the hours when I have to, there is no love there, and I can't wait to get out of the door at the end of the day. I do daydream alot - it helps the day go faster - LOL - and I admit if can skive on the Internet, a personal phone call or whatever I will do so!! I am probably NOT the kind of person you would want to employ!!!

I believe I am quite a hard worker. I used to teach fulltime, with a young child & I was widowed. Evetually I retired from work, but still have a busy life. I take my daughter to swimming training 6 times per week (9 hours). One of those sessions I have to get up at 5am. Plus I drive my 2 step children to & from 2 different schools, drive my daughter to school most days (one hour round trip). I have to home cook all meals due to my husbands allrgies & bake his bread. Have to bake high prtein slice for my daughter too, as she is a vegetarian. Of course, there is the housework!

from my experience, i found out that one does not have to be a hard worker to prove your worth to yourself or to anyone.or to make more money.we have to be a wise worker.find out what is the easier way to do more work because in that way you work less and getting a lot and a lot better results.it is th 20/80 principle.you work 20% to get an 80% result.learning the art of productivity makes your life better and less stress.thus, you will have more time for yourself.it is important that we have more time for ourselves because if we are not centered then our whole world would collapse leadiing us to a breakdown.i go by the principle that everything will be alright.there is no real need to rush rush and rush, just take it easy anf the future will take care itself if you do it right today.

Because of a disabling accident, I am no longer able to work, but when I did, I was a very hard worker. I still remember the day I took on a new job and was supposed to be in training. They really didn't have anything for me to do since I was basically supposed to be observing how things were done. I was so bored that I had a hard time standing still. I just wanted to yell out, "Give me something to do!" I get bored easily if I have nothing to do, and I like to keep busy. When I got hurt at work I thought I was going to go crazy before the first week or two was over. I think I drove everyone around me crazy at least since I hurt too bad to move, but couldn't stay still either.
