Which of MG’s Twenty Annoying Habits Do You Have?

May 11, 2009

I really like Marshall Goldsmith’s 20 Annoying Habits List. It’s a gem that I need to re-read every year. My better half has it posted next to her computer. Here are the first three points.

  • 1. Winning too much: the need to win at all costs and in all situations – when it matters, when it doesn’t, and when it’s totally beside the point.
  • 2. Adding value: the overwhelming desire to add our two cents to every discussion.
  • 3. Passing judgment: the need to rate others and impose our standards on them.

I reviewed this great book here
