I would say the first 10 are definitely me. The second half of the list would be areas I need to work on. Particularly #13 mastering your technique. I have a great deal of work to do on that one.
After reading the list I realized I still have a long way to go. Definitely worth a bookmark to get back later in a year and see how I have changed.
Stays on the job all day - This is something slacking on. Once get daily tasks want to do everyday start to get comfortable.
Patience- Consider myself a calm person at work will handle whatever is thrown my way but of course only the loved ones only one that can’t make me impatient.
Will be writing down the 20 qualities to look at daily.
i think i possess most of these traits at my job the 3 i need to work on are
-to be more patient with myself and others
-i take failure personally and i dwell on them and i should move on quickly and execute the next thing
-and self validating i seek approval from others that my work is good when i should know myself the work im doing is good
Good list. Printed it off and will stick it on fridge door.
Interesting how I’m more pro in some aspects of my life than others. As this list pertains to the crypto space, I need to work on patience and asking for help. This crypto adventure is my 6th start-up. I’ve gained many of the attributes on this list from past endeavors. I recall an Oprah show where she had 3 guests on that were all self-made-millionaire entrepreneurs. Each one had failed many times at starting new businesses. The average success rate was 21. By the time they had started their 21st business they had finally learned enough to succeed. I eagerly look forward to that day where I have learned enough to succeed. I too work harder than most people in my current profession (of only 6 years). With more experience, I’ll be able to outperform the last few people that I look up to. I grind way too hard on a daily basis to not make something more out of my life. I will earn a house in the Bahamas/Caribbean -and the lifestyle to go with it.
Great list Peetaah!
My weakest areas are:
7 - Demystifies the unknown through experimentation – I got to admit I’m weak on execution, but I play a good game in my mind.
8 - Acts in the face of fear – Slow to act.
14 - Does not hesitate to ask for help – If I asked for help maybe I wouldn’t have some of these other problems.
19 - Reinvents him or herself – I need some new methods.
20 - Is recognized by other professionals – Not too concerned about this, it will happen if it is meant to be.
DAY 79 – Working toward Pro-dom…i’m all in…
I could work on 5, because patience can always be improved on, even if you are very patient already. 8 sometimes gets in my way as with my job you might be doing things you aren’t very comfortable with handling by yourself. 9, excuses are like assholes. “Everyone’s got them and they all stink.” That would be my top I think.
I will be printing this out and attaching it to the wall. I also will have to get The War of Art. That is the one thing that I know I am not doing with discipline. I have always been a book worm. But I will get that back into my schedule.
The areas I feel I currently in improvement are: seeking order, self-validating, and working with what I’ve got. I do feel like there is more I could be doing in my current form, but I’m so caught up in leveling up and improving that there are certain ideas that are being put off until later.
Always room for improvement the 2 of which was said few days back of showing up and executing fast are the upmost important if priority.
I see that I have a long ways to go. I’m worried I will not be the professional I want to be.
1 - Shows up every day - not always. can be bi-polar in this regard. work long and hard but when desired result does not get closer…I get into a slump
2 - Stays on the job all day - until I am so exhausted I ache in the morning
3 - Committed over the long haul - I say so now, but I fail and have to pick myself up
4 - The stakes are high and real - I do not forget
5 - Patient - i’m tired of waiting, but I will
6 - Seeks order - of course.
7 - Demystifies the unknown through experimentation - I worry about this a lot as experiments can be costly and tie up resources, and bog down forward momentum if experiment fails. .
8 - Acts in the face of fear - I have too. the stakes are too high not to.
9 - Accepts no excuses - this is hard as the things that stop me or slows me down are responsibilities
10 - Works with what they have - This I do, but crave more
11 - Prepared -LOL I’m doing this so I can prepare
12 - Does not show off - Yes
13 - Dedicates himself to mastering technique - Yes
14 - Does not hesitate to ask for help - Only child syndrome kicks me in the balls all the time.
15 - The professional does not take failure or success personally - I am not good here. It all feels personal
16 - Does not identify with his or her instrument
17 - Self-validates - yep
18 - Endures adversity - all the time
19 - Reinvents him or herself. - used to be able to do this easier, but as I get older it gets harder, as there seems to be more to loose
20 - Is recognized by other professionals - I doubt it. At least the they have not let me know about it
I can say that i defiantly don’t have all these qualities, I do share some of these qualities, but i am far from a professional.
I am now aware of such qualities shared by professionals and will be mindful of these moving forward. There is always room for personal growth and development.
