I saw an awesome Twitter thread recently about called The Top 50 Things that Shaped My Worldview. I got to thinking about some of the things on this list that has affected me in my job. So here are my top 10 things that I have shaped how I do business. Maybe a few of these can help you as well:

  1. When you get information, use what you can and file the rest. You may be able to use some of it one day.
  2. There is a fine line between paying attention to details and nitpicking.
  3. It’s not what you know or who you know – it’s what you do.
  4. Work on the issues that others ignore. You’ll provide a solution for what may have been an unknown problem.
  5. Always be willing to learn more. You can never discover what you never knew if you don’t seek it out.
  6. Efficiency is the cornerstone to excellent customer service.
  7. Be aware of your limits. Set deadlines accordingly. Leave notes for yourself. Ask for help.
  8. Don’t just market your company; market yourself as well. People don’t buy from companies. They buy from other people.
  9. Be prepared. Whether it’s making sure that you have your office supplies or going over extreme cases of potential problems, preparation is always necessary.
  10. Shoot for the moon, but don’t worry about “landing among the stars.” When you set a goal, focus on the true goal. Don’t settle for less.

BONUS: Be kind. People don’t like jerks and you will earn a reputation either way.
