It is important to become a trusted employee/leader at your workplace. Let it be your clients, team members or boss, be the favorite trustworthy person at the office.
Be an Attentive Listener:
Listening is a powerful way to build strong work-relationship with your co-workers and team. It is a sign that you genuinely want to hear their opinion(s). It also helps you gain more support and can hugely benefit your working strategies.
A helpful person is always respected and is an influencer. So, always find time to help people at work. Share your knowledge to help them succeed. This way you will earn life-long respect.
Whether it is to arrive at work on time or finish your tasks/projects in the given deadline, make punctuality your habit. Know all office policies and avoid violating any of them.
Be Focused and Consistent:

If you can't get rid of your distractions better take leave from work to relax and get back to work with more energy.
