Reputation Matters at Work and at Home



It is fantastic to realize when it comes to your life at work and home, reputation matters. Reputation is what people think of you, how people refer to you when you are not around. It is common for people to take care to be sure they have a good reputation at work. Often, little attention is paid to the reputation one has at home.  This is a mistake. No matter if at home or at work, reputation matters a great deal.

Recently I the movie Jack Reacher. In the movie, a man was accused of committing a horrific mass killing. The police questioned the man to try to get him to confess to the crime. The accused man refused to comment in any way except to say that the authorities should find Jack Reacher. Initially, the police and the accused’s attorney thought the accused wanted Reacher because he knew they were friends.  This was not the case. In fact, Reacher hated the accused and had nothing good to say about him.  Over the course of the movie we came to learn quite a few things bout Jack Reacher. We learned he had been a criminal investigator. Reacher was tenacious, did not shy away from a fight and would find the truth, no matter, no matter the parties involved or the politics. Reacher had a reputation and reputation matters.

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

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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • We should always strive to have others think well of us. Good character is something we build on every day.

  • 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.

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

  • 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!

  • 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.
