Observing the Worker
Posted by friendofsnowflake
There are studies that show that just by observing a worker that person will do better at their tasks. Why is this? Could it be that we want to impress someone or are we just looking for an audience?
Rooming in a house with several others means often there are others present in the house. Does this help me complete my tasks? In the more optimistic circumstance we would all be doing better at our tasks because we would want to impress one another. We would excel in getting things done and become well-known for accomplishments, successes and work achieved.
It helps to make other people proud whether you live with them or not. Next time you feel like complaining you might want to try and let someone know one of your great achievements. We can paint one another in a better light. Did I tell you I have been working towards fifty lengths at the pool and this week I have accomplished the fifty lengths. Does this make me an athlete? Now, the question is who will I tell? And did I do a better job because there were others at the pool where I was swimming?
It would be nice to think we could excel at the things we do even if nobody is looking. If we are aware that, just having company may give us the leading edge, could we go around this obstacle and give ourselves extra motivation when we are alone. Snacks, pep talks and fun activities could be rewards when we are alone.
Impressing other people is a human trait. Whether you are alone or with other people I hope you’ll share your accomplishments with other people. Maybe now you’ll find ways of getting into a good groove and finishing up those challenging tasks left on your plate.
