The Four D’s of Work Ethic

In our last post, we looked at the history of work ethic.

In the Modern economy, having a routine work ethic is a prerequisite for achieving your goals and surviving in an increasingly competitive environment.

Below you will discover the characteristics of work ethic that define success on a daily basis.

The Four D’s of Work Ethic: beyond insurance

  1. Desire:  How badly do you want it?  How important is it that you accomplish your missions and goals?
  2. Dedication: Turn desires into action, which requires a lasting commitment. How dedicated are you to your goals and dreams?
  3. Determination:  This represents the intensity through which one is dedicated to the accomplishment of his or her goals.  Often, determined people are self motivated.  Arthur Ashe once said “You are never playing an opponent.  You are playing yourself”.
  4. Discipline:  Allows a person to make the most of what they have.  Discipline is action oriented.  It is deciding how you will go about achieving your goals by staying with that strategy.

Now that you know what it takes to have a work ethic, are you willing to commit to it every day? What are some systems you can put in place to maintain the work ethic you need to succeed?
