Answers For The Workplace E-Memo

Making a Difference Where You Work

Who are your role models? Try this little quiz:

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last three winners of the Miss America pageant.
3. Name five people who have won the Pulitzer prize.
4. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.

How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. They’re the best in their fields, but eventually, their achievements are forgotten.

Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. List the five teachers who were most helpful in school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. List five people who have made you feel appreciated.

Easier? You bet. The lesson is that people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care.

The same applies to how you treat the people around you. You can strive for all the awards and recognition, but if you’re not touching those around you on a personal level, you’re really not making a difference in the workplace as much as you could be.
