If you’ve ever worked a day in your life, and particularly been in a position to manage or oversee other people, you’d know there are a whole lot of people who talk a good game when it comes to their career ambitions, but can never back it up. These are the folks who just know they want to be an entrepreneur but have no clue what business they want to start, or who think they could do a better job running the company than everybody else but can’t even name two things they would do to improve revenue. Essentially, they’re just BSing.

Climbing the corporate latter and achieving your career goals is no easy feat for a number of reasons but it’s quite easy to weed out the people who really want to make it and who just think they want to. In case you’re not sure where you fall, check out these signs you’re not really serious about what you do.

    This article is so for me. I am the type of person who comes late and leaves on time ( well not all the time though …)

    Great advice for those who don’t have proper work ethics or values for themselves. One would be surprised at the amount of people who do all the things & more listed above. This applies to all age groups in the work field and cannot be blamed on “being young & dumb”.. Slackers pay attention!
