These are the qualities we were told were required for success:

  • Determination
  • Passion
  • Specialized skills
  • Experience
  • Work ethic
  • Strong communicator

So, we diligently applied ourselves, demonstrated those traits, and succeeded. But now, nearly everyone around you is doing the above. Which means there’s a new list of qualities that differentiates the successful professional:

  • You care about your colleagues, including the ones with whom you disagree
  • You have a healthy and fulfilling life outside of work
  • You can empathize with others and adapt your approach
  • You are focused, disciplined and centered
  • You are amazed by how much you have yet to learn

There are people around you who keep working the top list. Their frustrations mount: They can’t understand why they’re not going anywhere.

The professional who increasingly matters, however, is the one who does things that matter.

Which list are you on?
