The Measure of Our Character

Organizations today need people who come to work ready to get the job done--people whose personal lives are stable so that they can direct their attention and energy to their work, their customers, and their co-workers.

The quality of your personal life has a direct impact on the quality and success of your professional life.  Everyone in your organization needs to see you as an emotionally stable, reliable, and strong person.  They want to know that they can trust you with their products, services, and customers, and that they can count on you to do your job well.

People who seem to be the happiest and most satisfied in life have made a conscious effort to be in a healthy/functional environment in both their personal and professional lives.  They assume responsibility for making good choices about the people with whom they spend their time.
The measure of our character is not how we handle ourselves when life is easy, but it is how we rise above the unfairness of life and make healthy, ethical choices that benefit others and ourselves at any given moment.
You have the power to make your personal life one of which you can be proud.  Your well-ordered personal life will be reflected in your work and will ensure your future employability.

Until next time...
