Contagious work ethic. What does that mean?
As a kid, my father taught me at an early age everything I needed to know about work ethic. Before baseball practice one day he said, “Show up before everyone else, work harder than everyone else, be coachable, and stay later than everyone else”. He didn’t just “talk the talk”, he led by example every day with a contagious work ethic. So when people talk about my personal work ethic, whether they are meaning it as a compliment or criticism, I always take it as a compliment.
