The Daily Pledge

On his way to work, a dear young friend of mine takes the following pledge every day:


  • I will use my knowledge, skill, abilities, and time at workplace, fully and exclusively, for the attainment of organizational goals.
  • I will not violate any company policy – in letter or in spirit.
  • I will strive to excel and produce quality work – on time, every time.
  • I will act confidently, boosted by my commitment to accomplish the mission of the organization; limited by knowledge that every day is a new day and yesterday’s good work will not save me from the consequences of today’s mistakes.
  • I will not hesitate to forgo my comforts in furtherance of organizational goals.
  • And, I will not compromise my values.

In which direction, do you think, is his career headed?
