How Responsible are You?
You can count on me!
Good job! You are accountable, responsible, and ready to rock the job world. Watch out for people who take advantage of your sense of responsibility. Over committing yourself could make you stressed out or miss deadlines. Truly responsible people know how and when to say "no."
Most of the time, you're responsible, but you still have a bit of work to do if you're going to rock the job world. Work on finding ways to stay accountable. If you're chronically late, use your phone's alarm system to remind you an hour before you're supposed to be somewhere, and again 15 minutes before your appointment. If you forget things, use your phone's reminder system to keep track of your commitments. Calendar tools are very helpful, too! Remember that 80% of success is just showing up. You can do this!
You need to get your act together! You have habits that make you unreliable, which won't endear you to your boss. Work on your accountability skills by using reminders and a calendar tool. Ask your friends to hold you accountable for being places on time and following through with your commitments.
