  • There are quite a few. As far as I'm concerned, it's very difficult to choose one. My answer is multi-faceted. This is kind of a paradox. Good traits are like children: A parent equally loves all, but loves them all in different ways. It’s combination of many characteristics. Here are my suggestions to being successful on the job as well as being a successful person: 1] Having and keeping a positive mental attitude. 2] Integrity - being honest with yourself as well as with and to all others. NO kickbacks or stealing. This, above all else: “To thine own self, be true! And it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not then be false to any man.” William Shakespeare 3] Having an open mind. 4] Cleanliness. Period. 5] The ability to learn from others AND teaching still others. 6] Having the ability to make decisions and/or decide AND STICKING with that decision. If and when someone asks “why?” a certain procedure was done (or wasn't done) a certain way, you must be able to fully explain your reasoning behind that decision. 7A] The ability to properly communicate: following directions and the orders others may give. Properly reading, writing and speaking. 7B] Knowing what to do and how to do it. 7C] Doing the job at-hand to the best of your ability. When there are questions, asking the questions. There’s no such thing as a stupid question. The ONLY stupid question is the question NOT asked. 8] Being part of the overall team. NO job is too small. When it means picking-up that mop [or cleaning the bathrooms and/or other menial tasks] to lend a hand - you do it - without bragging or complaining. That absolutely horrible, miserable and selfish expression, “That‘s not my job.” DOES NOT exist. 9] On occasion, staying over to help the following shift OR coming in earlier AND going to work to help the overall operation. AND THEN there‘s that expression: "There is no "I" in "TEAM". 10] Having a sense of humor. 11] Being kind and courteous to others. As a footnote: AND STILL keep your wits about you - without “throwing”/having temper tantrums. Be fair, yet firm. NO favoritism! 12) Volunteering - giving of one's self to a worthy charity or cause. As a matter of fact: Isn’t it true any, many or all of the above can be divided into sub-categories? Thanks for asking your Q! I enjoyed answering it! VTY, Ron Berue Yes, that is my real last name!

  • To me one of the most memorable scenes in a movie says it all. It is not a famous scene, it is not significant at all in motion picture history, but it is magical, if you will pardon the expression, to me. In the movie *Excalibur* there is a discussion amongst the Knights of the Round Table and King Arthur. They are discussing the most admirable trait of a Knight. Many things are mentioned, but Arthur asks Merlin what he thinks the most important trait is. Merlin answers without hesitation that the answer is truth, for without truth nothing else matters. I believe this applies to us all. It's why Al Gore is insignificant. It's why Bill Clinton is a disgrace. It's why Congress is a joke, and on and on. Truth has lost it's importance. Things will not be right until truth becomes the rule once again.
