Spongebob Squarepants and Patrick may have existed in the cartoon world but these characters can render some lessons on life and work. Also, these two characters have shared a thing or two about career lessons and how to do your job well.
In a post from Officezilla, if you love your job, then it is not work. According to the post, "Spongebob loves his job at the Krusty Krab. He loves hanging out with his co-worker Squidward, he dreads his days off, and he is always excited to get back to work after a holiday."
Spongebob takes his career as seriously and showcases his love for his work as well. also, Spongebob shares the possibility that a "Can Do" attitude is truly effective at work. Although Spongebob's boss has considered firing him multiple times, his "can do" attitude has saved him in his direst need. In the same manner, you can as well. Practice the "can do" attitude in your workplace and attain new heights.
Another career lesson drawn from Spongebob's life is the value of his job. He knows everything about the Krusty Krab and its processes, from cleaning the restrooms to running the register and he even knows the combination to the safe that stores the Krabby Patty "secret formula, and because of this, the competition (Plankton) is constantly trying to hire Spongebob away, as noted by the same post.
If you value your job, you are also aware of everything that your entails thus making you a fortifying force that can support your boss in more ways than one. Not only that, you are also able to generate respect in your workplace. Just like Steve Jobs, he commanded respect in the workplace as well, reports Job & Hire.
One vital career lesson from Spongebob is the attitude of thinking that everyday is a brand new day. Even though the day did not bode well at work today, don't dwell on it and but on the next day, think of it as a brand new day so that you can set the pace and enjoy your work to the fullest.
These may seem childish lessons drawn from Spongebob Squarepants but despite its simplicity, the effects are somewhat stunning and are simply surprisingly. Indeed it is one of the simplest ways to improve your working performance and mindset about life and work.
