February Attribute is INITIATIVE.

I will recognize what needs to be done and do it, without prompting from others.


Initiative is about doing something even if it isn't necessarily your job or responsibility to do so.

It's about doing something that you haven't been asked to do because you know it must be done or you see a need that is unmet.

Having initiative not only allows you to do what needs to be done quickly and effectively, but also prompts others to become involved in the endeavors you undertake because they see your positive work habits.


•  do things without having to be asked

•  pitch in where I see I am needed

•  be innovative and enthusiastic in everything that I do

"Thinking is easy, acting is difficult, and to put one's thoughts into action is the most difficult thing in the world.“

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
