The standard


At all times, the thing we expect of all our people is that they do what they say they’re going to do. If that’s pulling up trees, show me the roots. If it’s about pushing the tiny ball an inch up the hill, show me the ball up the hill. When we agree the next milestone, show me that stone and the results of the labour. That’s accountability. That’s the job.

What’s good for the goose, is good for the role model.

When you say you’re going to do something, do it. When you say you’ll do something by Tuesday, do it by Tuesday. When you make a promise, fulfil on the promise. When you say you’ll check in, check in. Do what you want them to do.

Set the standard, be the standard, hold everyone else to the standard.

Skippy strategy: Do what you say you’re going to do.
