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?)

Share awareness. Inspire responsibility.

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.
