Work principles will help you keep raising the bar. Set your expectation and create a productive and goal-oriented work-life. If you have workplace principles already in place to guide you; great! If not, there is no reason you can’t create your own. Not everyone is going to value the same things, but some principles are relatively standard, like teamwork and leadership. Before you start to create your work principles, give it thought. It’s easy to make up principles that sound impressive, but if you don’t own what you’re writing down, it's a waste of time and you’ll miss out on the benefits, which is not what you want. When you have a list of principles to access, it serves as a guide of conduct that will remind you of how you want to work; ultimately it will become a natural way of thinking that will translate to high-level outcomes on a regular basis.
