New WashingtonExec Series:
WashingtonExec asked the simple question to top area executives:
“If you could give your kids only three pieces of advice, what would they be?”
1. Personal integrity is fundamental one’s ability to be honest … integrity is being honest with yourself; if you cannot be honest with yourself, you will never be honest with others.
2. Be confident in yourself … not arrogant! Self confidence enables you to be decisive; to take appropriate risks; to do your best and accept whatever the outcome; to recognize that you will never be perfect, but can always be better. These attributes will enable you to differentiate yourself from the crowd.
3. Be balanced in your life’s pursuits … taking care of your family is Job #1!
