6 Habits To Make A Difference

  1. 1. 6 habits to make a difference
  2. 2. 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.
  3. 3. 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.
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. 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.
  7. 7. Work harder than everyone else • Nothing--nothing--is a substitute for hard work. Look around: How many of your competitors are working as hard as they can? • The best way to stand out is to try to out-work everyone else. • It's also the easiest, because you'll be the only one trying.
