I really liked this from

1. Your call and yours alone: Consciously choose the attitude you take to work this morning. (Bingo: Positive, enthusiastic—regardless of how you feel inside.)

2. Realize that each day literally offers up on a silver platter a dozen leadership opportunities, regardless of your age/experience/rank/seniority/status. (So grab ONE.)

3. Arrive early. Leave late. (Out work 'em ... it works.)

4. Listen aggressively: Formally practice and improve listening skills. (Effective listening = #1 long-term differentiator.)

5. Learn something new today. Meet someone new today. (Reside permanently on the edge of your discomfort zone.)

6. Cherish your boo-boos. (No screw-ups today = Abject failure to nudge ye olde envelope.)

7. Civil. Always. (Make it a religion.)

8. Unbidden, help someone with some[little]thing. (Make it a religion.)

9. Take a nanosecond to say "Thanks" for the tiniest atoms of helpfulness. (Make it a religion.)

10. Smile. (Make it a religion.)

11. Eye contact. (Make it a religion.)

12. EXCELLENCE. Always. (Excellence is not an "aspiration." Excellence is the next five minutes. Or not.)
