5. Be devoted to your work. Work on every little detail and pay close attention to them. 6.Be considerate to the suggestions of others. You can learn from your fellow trainee’s experience.
7. Develop the habit of finishing what you have started. Do not lose your interest merely because you have failed once or twice. Exert more effort until you finish what you have planned.
8. Don’t adopt a “ningas-kugon” attitude.
