Traits I appreciate

in coworkers
in family members
in anyone I come into contact with

  1. Common courtesy. Use your manners, think of others, don't be a burden

  2. Willingness to do what you are supposed to be responsible for. Whether it is bringing the pumpkin pie to Thanksgiving or writing the Reading it.

  3. Doing what you say you will do.

  4. Keeping bad words to a minimum. yeah the occasional curse might be well place, comical, or help emphasize, but don't over do it

  5. Speak kindly of others. Don't trash everyone you know.

  6. Be direct. I'm not interested in your hidden agenda or mind games.

  7. Don't whine. We all have crap going on.

  8. Work hard. Half doing things is creating more work for others

  9. Play fairly

  10. Find the joy in life...and focus on it


  1. Oooooh, number six is such a huge waste of time.

  2. I like #7... you don't hear me talking your ear off about my crap all day... take the hint! (Not you, Beth... everyone else.)
