Uncompromising Dedication!

by David Brock on January 2nd, 2017

This morning I was struck by some very kind words in a note from Dan Waldschmidt on my 2017 Charity:Water Campaign.  Two words struck me, “Uncompromising Dedication.”

While Dan’s comments are overly generous, as we look to the New Year, it strike me that “Uncompromising Dedication” might be watch words for all who are trying to achieve and make a difference.

Whether it is with their customers, in their jobs, with their colleagues, their families, or communities.

Uncompromising Dedication is so simple, yet so powerful.  I can’t begin to outline all the dimensions, but I’ll a few ideas.

  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to helping our customers achieve their goals and dreams?
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to doing our jobs?  Not seeking shortcuts, not creating excuses, but simply focused on doing the work?
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to the success of our colleagues?  None of us exists in isolation, the age of the lone wolf is long past.  What if we invested time in helping our colleagues achieve success in whatever they are seeking?
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to the success of our people?  Rather than treating them as commodities to be switched in and out, we focused on their success and maximizing their performance?
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to the success of our company?  Rather than acting in silos, doing our jobs, we aligned ourselves to achieve our shared vision and goals.
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to the success of our families?  Too often, we short change them of our time and caring.  We are diverted by the continued incoming stream of messages on all our devices.  What would change if we shut down and paid attention to them?
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to sharing and working in our communities?  Changes starts in our communities and the organizations we choose to contribute to.  If we want to change the world, we have to start in our communities and organizations where we can have an impact.
  • What would happen if we were uncompromisingly dedicated to our own constant learning and improvement?  Imagine being relentless in your learning and obsessive in execution.  Imagine the impact you have on others and your own personal success/development

It’s two very simple words, yet perhaps the most powerful concept I can imagine.  If each of us resolved to be Uncompromisingly Dedicated to at least one of the areas I’ve outlined, think of the impact each of us can have.

Think of what it would mean to you and your own fulfillment.

Thanks so much Dan for those two simple words!
