Commitment

25 Jan

Sometimes it’s not your level of output that’s measured – it’s your level of commitment.

Organizations, employers and professors, though obliged to rank you in the end by the quality of your work, also take a good look at the amount of emotional capital you choose to invest.

Visibly caring about the work or the organization you’re involved with can go a long way. Have you demonstrated that you care for the groups you belong to? This involves more than accomplishing tasks – it means you show up, you show you care, you show that you understand the potential of the organization and you take pride in being associated with the work you’re doing.

Do the people you work with – in any capacity – know you’re involved for more than a bullet point on your resume?

Those who have the greatest influence are those who have committed to a cause emotionally.
