Someone gave me a huge compliment 2 weeks ago and I just now realized it.
I had put together some documentation around a process and created some diagrams with notes of the flaws.
The person’s response was “I don’t need to look at this because I know that if you put the work in to create this it’s probably accurate or you wouldn’t have shown me, the question is what do you plan to do with it…”
This person gave me so much trust in my work, that it’s validity wasn’t even a question.
Lesson learned: Sometimes we are micro-complimented and we don’t even realize it. Think about the conversations you have during the day. You may realize you are receiving more compliments than you realize!
