There is one thing we all need to do in order to live fruitful and productive lives. And this is add value. So today, we’re talking about the power of adding value rather than putting in time. Many years ago, Jim Rohn said, “We get paid for the value we bring to the marketplace.” Have you ever worked with somebody who was putting in the time as opposed to somebody who was seeking to add value? 

I’ll tell you what, people who show up at their job adding value rather than putting in the time are rockstars. And I want to share with you 3 rock-star qualities of people who add value. Keep reading to learn more.


1. They Have Mission Flow

People who add value flow with the mission of the business or the organization. They understand the purpose of the enterprise. As a result, they align themselves with that purpose in order to best serve the organization’s clients and customers, while simultaneously contributing to the growth and development of the business.


2. They Bring Their Uniqueness

Those who are seeking to add value bring who they are to the mission. In other words, they bring their unique skills, tools, and talents to the cause, employing every aspect of who they are. This allows people to contribute in ways that are unique to them. The result? A workforce is created where staff members are:

  • Tapping into and developing their creativity
  • Finding out-of-the-box solutions to challenging problems
  • Planting seeds of rapport with other team members
  • Increasing diversity due to everyone’s unique set of skills and talents

When people can tap into their distinct set of gifts, they can add value in broader (and very often) unexpected ways that would not have been possible without their eccentric methods. Consequently, this enables the workplace to flourish and develop at an accelerated pace.


3. They Move With Professionalism

People who add value understand that it’s not just about bringing their talents to the marketplace; It’s the way they do it that truly matters. And they bring their gifts to the marketplace with professionalism and excellence. Everything they do is dripping with excellence, and this mentality is what enables them to add increasingly more value as they continue learning more and developing their skills. These individuals tend to:

  1. Be adaptive and flexible
  2. Demonstrate initiative and leadership
  3. Look for solutions as they are success-oriented
  4. Approach difficulties with a growth mindset
  5. Have a positive attitude and mentality

All the talent in the world will fall flat if the person lacks professionalism and a duty toward excellence in their work.
