ZERO TO HERO DAY 16: MAKE A WRITING PROMPT YOUR OWN
The prompt: Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?
It’s difficult to think of myself as having a reputation. I hear the word reputation when people are talking about someone well known for doing something. I don’t think I’m enough of a celebrity to be well known for something. I am not a celebrity at all, in fact.
I know I don’t have a bad reputation. I do my work. I honor my commitments. I’m polite and friendly. I don’t cause trouble. I sound pretty boring don’t I?
If I’m known for anything at work, it’s for my skill at creating training videos and doing voice-overs. That’s a good thing because people keep asking me to make these videos.
Many people know that I’m a dancer. They tend to ask me if I’m still dancing. Do they think I shouldn’t be because I’m too old to dance? Am I reading too much into this question?
One day I would like to have a reputation for being a “thought leader” in some niche field. This should lead to me getting paid to blog. I guess that’s one of reasons why I keep plugging away.
