Creative – Without this habit, somewhere along the line you will get stuck. You absolutely need this habit in order to be successful.
Openness – Be open in what you know and what you do not know; that is what makes a true professional.
Usefulness – Make sure that what you do is appreciated.
Realistic – Be realistic in managing expectations, in everything you do. Do not set too high goals for yourself, because someone will have to pay sometime.
Adoptive – Make sure that you know what is going on in your area of expertise. Try new things and see where you can use them.
Generous – Do not be afraid to share your knowledge.
Eagerness – Be determined to reach your goals.
COURAGE turns out to be very useful indeed everyday. Courage to face the customer, courage to aspire, courage to admit mistakes, to reflect, to say no, to say yes, the list goes on and on. Courage may be the most important habit of all.
