For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted. Luke 14:11
I often think that when I do something well and receive compliments for my work I need to keep it in perspective.
While it is important to appreciate the acknowledgement it is equally has important I believe to reflect on what I have achieved.
What did I do really well and what could I change and build on for the future. For the future is what we look to and ensures we maintain a high standard so when we are asked to adjust and add flexibility to what we do then the change will be seamless and the progression evident.
The end result is from your work others will reap the benefits and you won’t seek out compliments because of the great personal satisfaction you receive from a job well done.
