Pursue Excellence

Virtue is “the moral excellence evident in my life as I consistently do what is right.” Dependability is only as good as the principles guiding it. Sometimes fulfilling your role as a friend or coworker means confronting someone about his or her bad attitude. Your integrity will guide your means and your objectives. Be someone others can count on to do the right thing.

Practice Tolerance

Tolerance is “realizing that everyone is at varying levels of character development.” A dependable person might have to exercise patience and tolerance with less-disciplined coworkers, friends, and family members. Maintain high personal standards, and plan to adjust your schedule to the needs of others.

Adapt Methods

Creativity is “approaching a need, a task, or an idea from a new perspective.” Do not allow monotony to lull you into complacency. Develop new strategies, and find ways to overcome obstacles and fulfill your responsibilities more efficiently.
