Not a Bad List…

Monday Morning Match is a short post – maybe a quote, inspirational story or idea – intended to spark some motivation inside each of you so your week gets off to a fantastic start on Monday morning.

I was surfing through some miscellaneous files on my laptop, looking for some inspiration for something to blog about and I came across the list below buried amongst some old files .

I’m not sure where I got it so I am not going to take credit for creating it. According to the “properties” it looks like I added it to my files in 2007? I will assume the list came from someone very smart but without any more details on the document, I will credit it to that person who is credited for many of the best quotes and statements in history – the person known as “Anonymous.”

How many of the following “keys” can you use this week to unlock a door?

The Keys to Success

  • Take responsibility for yourself…
  • Contribute to others’ success…
  • Put customers first…
  • Be a “team player”…
  • Volunteer and show some initiative…
  • Follow the rules…
  • Work the hours you’re paid for…
  • Exceed expectations…
  • Keep your commitments…
  • Get with change…
  • Be considerate…
  • Don’t whine or spread negativity…
  • Give and earn respect…
  • Embrace diversity…
  • Keep learning…

  • Be patient…
  • Think “safety”…
  • Think “health”…
  • Look your best…

Oh yeah. There are three more “keys” you might want to try and use this week to unlock the door to success…

#1 – Build relationships
