Teach yourself to work smarter, not harder
Another very important bucket list item, working smarter at your job could get you where you want to be more efficiently than taking on multiple tasks to prove yourself. Taking your time on each project and task helps you find ways to work better; rushing through each task to prove that you are capable of working under time constraints can also make you seem unorganized and careless when it comes to getting the task done right.

How to achieve this:
Start by nailing your daily tasks until they are completed with ease and are error-free, with little to no supervision. This will establish you as a valuable employee, and gear you up for bigger, more substantial tasks ahead. Do not overestimate the size of the task, but don’t underestimate its importance. Yes, it might seem like a lot of work to complete, but don’t make this your concern. Know that whatever the task is, it has been done before, so it is not impossible. Know when to ask questions if you are unsure and find your own way to complete the task that is thought out with a keen sense of detail. There’s no such thing as a perfect job well done, just one that has been completed with the best effort involved and with time, was done thoroughly.
