09 Apr Take Pride In Your Work
Only when an artist is completely satisfied with the painting does the piece of work receive their signature.
It’s the final statement that the work delivers on the inspiration.
Your work doesn’t have to be a painting, and you may not personally autograph it, but the final product is attributable to you or the collaborative team you led or were a part of.
How will that work reflect on you, your talents, and your abilities? ALWAYS give your best effort. It makes a difference.
This reminds me of the New York Yankees’ outfielder and Joe DiMaggio, when asked why he hustled on plays that had little effect on a game’s outcome or on his team’s standing, Joe replied, “Because there’s always some kid who may be seeing me for the first time. I owe him my best.”
You owe yourself your best. It matters. Your clients and customers will notice. Their current success is your long-term success.
Take pride in your work.
