Reputation Matters at Work and at Home — 35 Comments

  1. I try really hard to do what is right. You are so right. Reputation is important in both business and personal relationships.

  2. My parents always said your reputation is everything, therefore never give anyone anything negative to say about you.

  3. Great post. You always have to work hard to keep a stellar reputation. One negative comment seems to go much further than a good one does!

  4. Wow deep thought provoking blog! Yes a reputation is very important…I want to have a rep that I am kind and reliable and loyal. I feel bad when I can always do for everyone, but when I do, I do it from the heart.

  5. Everyone should be aware of what type of persona that they put out there in the world. How you interact with everyone leaves an impression of some sort.

    Thanks for sharing this info.

  6. Excellent post! I work hard to do what is right and to get a good reputation. I don’t want to do something out of character to ruin my reputation either. It’s hard work but well worth it.

  7. And so many people think their online reputation doesn’t matter. That is until something from the past comes back to bite them.

  8. Something I really need to work on! I am always doing stuff a the last second (you can forget the last minute) But it really needs to change!

  9. Funny you should mention this…I have a horrible home reputation for doing the dishes and cleaning up on the spur of the moment. No matter what I do and how I try to improve, my sweetie just sees me as the one who waits until the last minute to clean up.

  10. Reputation really is all around and people don’t seem to remember that. Reputation from high school can follow you through college. Your reputation in a job can follow you around for the rest of your career. The way you act to friends or did in the past can also follow you forever. It’s all about recreating yourself and being the person you know you are or want to be. What a great post.

  11. Completely agree, people say they don’t care about what others think about them and to an existant you shouldn’t BUT they doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work for a good reputation.

  12. Reputation does mean a lot. I have taught that lesson over and over to the kids, especially when they were tweens/teens. They get it now. It’s important to reiterate, even if they’re not getting it at the time.

  13. It does matter! I hated people saying “don’t worry about others and what they think about you” cause the truth is, you do care and it does matter.

    • You are right. Just like when they say “sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.” That is a bunch of crap! Names do hurt.

  14. This is a great point to make, especially for bloggers. Word gets around when someone is rude or unprofessional!

  15. I am retired but professionally I had a great reputation and I would like to think I do on a personal level too. If you live your life right, you don’t have to worry about your reputation.

  16. When I really stop to think about this, I cannot say fully that I have a great reputation right through. There are some faults that I have that would ultimately lead to a poor reputation. On the other hand, there are some things that I can say without a doubt that I absolutely shine at, in these cases, I have a terrific reputation…like being on time, honesty, a good listener. That kind of stuff. I am terrible at sticking to plans (I always cancel last minute…which I KNOW is terrible). I know that it will take time to change these things about me, but I am willing to try.

    • I like that you are able to give an honest assessment of yourself! It is great that you see you are an awesome person even though there are some things you would like to improve.

Tell me what you think.
