Jane shows up late at every appointment. Regardless of who she work with or what she works on, it seems that she makes a conscious effort to be late. But she is not all bad. Sometimes when she would be more than 10 minutes late, she would call ahead to inform her colleagues.

Jane has developed a reputation among the people she works with as “the one who is always late.” In addition to being late, Jane is not the best at the work she does. She is just average and even though she does her best, it just does not do it for the people she works with.

What are you know as by people who work with you? Are you “the one who always shows up ahead of time,” or are you a Jane?

“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.” Confucius
