This post continues our “How to Be Awesome” series, highlighting exemplary Sonomans who live out the different elements of our “How to Be Awesome” list.
We feel that “just do it” emphasizes that you do what you say you will. Telling a client or a co-worker that you’ll get something done is a commitment. Your colleagues can feel confident that you’ll complete your work in a timely manner. When necessary, you’re willing to work late nights or weekends to meet your deadlines.
Here is how some Sonomans are just doing it:
Katy Moy – Graphic Designer
“Katy is unstoppable. She has never missed a deadline, is always handling multiple projects with competing due dates, creates effective marketing materials, and does it all without ever complaining. Her work ethic is second to none. I have worked with very few people like Katy in my life and feel lucky that I get to be on her team.”
What advice do you have for others trying to “just do it”?
Katy: Set realistic goals and be enthusiastic about what you do. Collaborate with your team members. Surround yourself with people who inspire you (which is abundant at Sonoma Partners!). Try to learn something new every day within your work.
Pete Majer – Principal Consultant
“Pete is always very responsive and keeps on top of things. He’s always willing to do what he can to help out and jump in to provide whatever support he can. I can’t think of a time when he told me or the client he would get something done and didn’t."
What does “just do it” mean to you?
Pete: Nobody likes to work late nights or weekends, but sometimes it’s mandatory. The biggest thing about “just do it” to me is being honest. If you promise someone that you’ll get something done by a specific date, you better do everything in your power to get it done by that deadline.
Vickie Stevens – Sr. HR Generalist
“Vickie is a powerhouse in getting things done and doesn’t let anything stand in her way. I always know she will meet her deadlines, and I never have to remind her to get something done. She is a joy to work with.”
Why is “just do it” an important part of the “How to Be Awesome” list for Sonoma?
Vickie: “Just do it” is an essential part of our “How to Be Awesome” list. We rely on each other as an organization to do what we say we will. Sonomans love the people they work with in big part because they can rely on them to put in the extra time or effort to get the work done and “just do it.”
