We normally see frames containing this list inside our company. Mostly inside the conference rooms. It is only now that I realize that these could also be applied on our journey to financial freedom. 1. Do it and Don't Tell. 2. Do it and Tell after doing. 3. Ask permission to do it. 4. Recommend what needs to be done. 5. Wait to be told what to do before doing. 6. #5 but don't do it. 7. #5, #6 plus complain about it. Action is the key to success and the worst thing you can do is do nothing and complain about it. At times, I belong to one of these levels but my goal is to stay in #1 and/or #2. You, do you know where you stand?

You forgot to include "Do it and tell while doing it". I am #1 and #2 and the one you forgot to include.

That's a nice thing to add. However, it was not included in our list. Will take note of that. It's also nice to know that you are already working on the top level. Congrats!

This is great! Thanks for sharing. I think my level depends on the role I play in life. For example, at work, I'm a mix of #3 and #4. at home I'm more of a #5. In Church work I'm #2 sometimes #1. This is really good. We should aim for #1 when it comes to good things :)

I agree. In doing good things, its good to be at #1. However, I have read somewhere it is also good to spread the word so that you can inspire others. It's like paying forward.

thanks for the information. .. let me add a comment.. as a support to the very informative topic... there are sometimes, when you have to think out of the box. ... and, there are certainly times, when you should be thinking .. from the inside of the box. ... it all depends on the situation .. and, on the understanding and experience. if you are inside the box... you will have to just apply the 1, 2, 3, ...etc. blindly.. and very soon.. you will be reaching .. OUTSIDE the box. either you will go out, or will be kicked out.
