6 habits to make a difference
Be first, with a purpose
Be the first to arrive each day
• Do something visibly worthwhile
for the company.
• Take care of unresolved problems
from the day before.
• Set things up so it's easier for
employees to hit the ground
running when they arrive.
• Chip away at an ongoing project
others are ignoring.
Be the one who gets in early and gets
things done. The example you set will
quickly spread.
Be known for something specific
• Be the one known for turning
around struggling employees
• Be the one who makes a few
deliveries a week to personally
check in with customers
• Be the one who consistently
promotes from within
• Be known as the person who
responds quicker, or acts faster,
or who always follows up first.
• Pick a worthwhile mission and
excel at that mission.
Create your own side project
• Excelling at an assigned project is
expected. Excelling at a side
project helps you stand out.
• Experiment with a new process or
service with a particular customer
in mind
Put your muscle where your mouth is
• Lots of people take verbal stands.
Fewer take a stand and put effort
behind their opinions.
• Say you think a project has gone off
the rails; instead of simply showing
everyone how smart you are by
pointing out its flaws and
revamping the timeline, jump in
and help fix it.
• It's easy to criticize what's wrong or
to talk about what should be
changed or could be improved. The
people who stand out are the ones
who help do something about it.
Show a little of your personal side
• Personal interests help other
people to identify and remember
you.
• Just make sure your personal
interests don't overshadow
professional accomplishments.
• Let people know a little about
you; a few personal details add
color and depth to your
professional image.
