The other day I read this very interesting article by Dharmesh Shah, the Founder and CTO at HubSpot. I found the article interesting because any time I am in a situation and asked or told about another professional I hear the same old descriptions – which in the end mean nothing to me. I am going to start using some of the words Dharmesh identified in this article to start describing the people I know. Of course this also opens the door for argument because the word only has meaning in the context of how I know the person professionally or personally – or maybe both.
I love the word “relentless” as described in the article. It really does carry all kinds of visions of a hard worker, persistence, and an achiever. I have often been described as “energetic” and “passionate” but I think I will work toward relentless or determined.
The cool thing is, you get to choose how people view you. As long as your actions constantly and consistently match your positioning, as long as you are intentional in thought and action, you can determine the immediate and direct connection people make when they see, hear, or think about you. – link
