Reputation for getting up early = you can stay in bed all day

Reputation“the beliefs or opinions that are generally held about someone”; “a widespread belief that someone or something has a particular characteristic.”

Your reputation shapes how people see you.

“A man with a reputation for getting up early can stay in bed all day”

Irish proverb

The reputation you have shapes how everything you do is viewed by those around you. As the Irish proverb says “A man with a reputation for getting up early can stay in bed all day”. A person with a reputation for positive impact can fail… and the senior people will say “it must have been a difficult project”… A person who doesn’t have that reputation for positive impact will have everything they do viewed.

Video from IESE Madrid… Reputation matters!

Ideally you are both competent and have a positive reputation. If you are incompetent, it would be best for the world that you have a poor reputation. However there are two dangerous situations… someone who is competent… but does not have a positive reputation; and someone who is incompetent.. but has a positive reputation.

This video is for those who start from a place of competence. Where you have competence… I want you to take the time to think about what generates a positive first impression.. and over the longer term, a positive reputation.
