Do your job? First, KNOW your job.

By Lawrence J. J. Leonard

A person of some notoriety in the news,
infamous for cheating at American football,
supposedly uttered the following to inspire a group of overpaid athletes:
Do your job.”

It’s official.
The cart is before the horse with this phrase.

Why demand that the job be done when the desire to do it is easily ignored?

 It is necessary to KNOW THE JOB first.

If there is a lack of training and practice,
a lack of enthusiasm for the work,
a lack of leadership from management,
or a lack of interest in supporting the organization,
THEN THERE IS NO WAY YOU CAN DO THAT JOB.

Successful people:
KNOW – through training and practicing;
COMPLETE each task the same as any a good habit;
CONSULT an expert or a colleague when in doubt;
COMMUNICATE with each customer;
REMEMBER that details, the little things, make an experience great;
FOLLOW each direction AND THEN follow through.

A handful of sporting competitions can never be relived.
KNOW YOUR JOB.

Some academic awards only come once a year.
KNOW YOUR JOB.

Almost all battles are won on a daily basis.
KNOW YOUR JOB.
