Trying to find motivation to get back into “work mode” when I came across this article.
I’ll soon be wading through piles of CVs to hire a new subeditor, and it’s good to be reminded that sometimes just having a certain skillset isn’t enough.
“…it’s the personal interactions you have with your colleagues, peers, and managers that truly shape your destiny.”
A few more takeaways on the qualities of successful people:
- They are humble. Their success doesn’t consume them.
- They are universally respectful—to their friends, their boss, or to the person that makes their sandwich for lunch.
- They are on time. On time for work, on time for meetings, on time for the train. They hate wasting their own time, and as a byproduct, anyone else’s.
- They respectfully push back. It’s easy to push back. To do so with respect takes skill.
Lessons of the day. Now it’s time to power through.
