The Quickest Professional Evaluation

The Quickest Professional Evaluation

Do I deliver?
Do others enjoy working with me?

So many nuances to those two questions. But, if you had to sum up what defines our professional value, I believe that would be it. Forced to make a choice between the two, I’d choose to deliver.

Of course, there’s no need to choose between the two. After all, who wants to be a results-producing machine who’s tolerated (tolerated … ugly word)?

Do I deliver?

Do I make good things happen for other people? Do I exceed expectations and positively surprise people more often than not? (Have I Crossed The Line? Am I 212?)

Do others enjoy working with me?

Am I a pleasure to be around? Do I care about others? Am I patient, kind, and honest? Am I quick to listen (really), slower to speak? Am I encouraging? Am I interested and enthusiastic? Am I real? (Do I Love My People? Am I a Smover? Do I Lead Simply?)

No Excuses Drama Complaints, 212 the extra degree, & Declaration of Contribution Pocket Cards. Share awareness. Inspire responsibility. Shop pocket cards.

Did I deliver?
Did others enjoy working with me?

Two great questions to put on your calendar for the conclusion of every week … maybe even every day. (Might be helpful personally, too.)

One more thought … be sure not to coddle yourself (coddle: to treat yourself in an indulgent or overprotective way) with the answers to those two questions. In the long run, truth will have you enjoying more.
