What is your conduct saying about you?

Is the way that you are conducting yourself presenting the image that you want?

A friend of mine was recently telling me about his experience in minor league baseball. “I saw so many play-by-play broadcasters show up late, unprepared and in t-shirts and jeans,” he said. “You never know who is listening or watching you work. If you use the excuse that you’ll be more professional when you are in the Majors or in a big market you’ll never get there.”

be awesome now

Those comments couldn’t be more right on. Look at them again:

“You never know who is listening or watching you work.”

It’s the reason Joe DiMaggio said he always used to play so hard – because someone might be watching him for the first time.

It’s the same with you. Someone might be listening to or watching you for the first time. And it might be a potential employer.

“If you use the excuse that you’ll be more professional when you are in the Majors or in a big market you’ll never get there.”

This is one of my favorite job market quotes of all-time.

Good habits aren’t something you start only when you reach a certain level. They are the foundation that will GET you to that level.

The way you conduct yourself says a lot about you. Make sure that what you are saying is that you are a cut above the rest.
