Do You Bring Excellence To Your Career?

By Pete Leibman

Excellence is when you always do what you say you will, and a little bit extra.

Excellence is when you do the right thing, no matter how it will impact you in the short-term.

Excellence is when you do the right thing, even when you think no one is watching.

Excellence is when you take pride in your appearance, even when you think no one will see you.

Excellence is when you never make excuses, complain, or feel that you are "above" any task.

Excellence is when you never need to be asked more than once.

Excellence is when you treat every person with respect, regardless of who the person is.

Excellence is when you make every person or project around you better.

Excellence is when you pursue mastery and always strive to be your best.

Excellence is when you can admit when you are wrong and learn from your mistakes.

Excellence is rare. It never goes unnoticed, and it is always eventually rewarded.

When you are a person of excellence, word travels fast, and you become indispensable in your organization and industry. Your reputation will travel with you throughout your career, so make sure you develop a reputation worth having...
