My rule of thumb, become a better “me” at work

On my subway ride to work, I sometimes think about how ideal “me” at work would behave. This morning, I decided to write my thoughts down as I was listening to new songs that I downloaded on my iPod.  Here is my rule of thumb that I try following to become a better “me” at work. I think it would be awesome too if everyone at work try to follow these rules… Just a thought. ^^*;

Observe and listen,
Investigate and analyze,
Engage and document,
Ask and clarify.

Think logically and creatively,
Collaborate and formulate solutions that make sense,
Make decisions based on facts, but also
Believe in intuition and experiences.

Work with the team with confidence, patience and trust,
Give credit where credit is due,
Argue with constructive reasonings,
Look for improvements and opportunities,
…And ultimately be responsible, humble and honest.
