Rule 9: Develop the right attitude

At work a lot of people have a sort of ‘us and them’ attitude.  They like to side with the ‘workers’ and moan about the ‘management’.  You, on the other hand, will develop the right attitude and not become one of the ‘us’ mentality.  No matter what your position now, you are the next head of department, an embryonic chairman of the board, a budding managing director.  You have to start to look at both sides of a situation and identify the position of ‘them’.  You may not voice this and may even, in public, appear to side with your fellow workers and colleagues. But deep down, in your heart, you understand and side with ‘them’.  Never forget that. Your colleagues may moan about management policy, but you will analyze it and try to see it from their point of view. 
To fit in and blend you may be tempted to adopt the camouflage of a moaning worker – not a wise move. Nod in agreement but don’t moan yourself.
The right attitude is twofold:
·                    First you side with management and see policy decision from their point of view.
·                    Second you devote your attention to becoming a total and committed Rules Player – you look out for Number one (that’s you, that is).

The right attitude means giving it your best shot, not just today but every day.  Not just when it’s easy but when it’s bloody awful as well.

The right attitude means going that extra mile, giving it that extra effort even when you’re tired and pissed off and ready to quit.  Others can quit, you can’t; you’re a Rules Player.

“The right attitude means going that extra mile, giving it that extra effort even when you’re tired and pissed off and ready to quit.  Others can quit, you can’t; you’re a Rules Player”.


The right attitude is head up, never moaning, always positive and upbeat, constantly looking for the advantage and the edge.

The right attitude is developing standards – and sticking to them.  Being sure of your bottom line and knowing when to make a stand. The right attitude is being aware that you have enormous power and that you will exercise that power with kindness, restraint, humanity and consideration.  You won’t do anyone down or be ruthless or manipulative. Yes, you may take advantage of others’ sleepiness or apathy or wrong attitude – that’s their problem. But you will take the moral high ground and be blameless.  The right attitude is being good but quick, kind but observant, considerate but successful.
