Quickly and cheerfully carrying out the direction of those who are responsible for me.

Key Concepts

Get Full Instructions
Clarify instructions if you do not understand what to do. Doing things right the first time will save time, energy, and frustration.

Have a Good Attitude
Attitude makes a big difference in the way others respond and in your effectiveness. Adjust your attitude, and do your best, even when faced with unpleasant jobs.

Act Immediately
Begin thinking about how you can follow through. Do not put things off until later.

Go the Extra Mile
Discern what your authority’s goals are, and go beyond minimum requirements. “A good man goes one mile; a great man goes two; the hero forgets to count.”

Follow the Rules
If asked to do something wrong, look for creative alternatives that will achieve your authority’s goals without violating ethical principles.
