When the promotion starts working well, you and your product may begin to receive more scrutiny. Expectations from the audience you've targeted are apt to increase. Now is the true test. Can you maintain the high standards that you've suggested might be found in your work?
When the curtain opens and the spotlight shines center stage, some people easily assume the professional role in which they've been cast. Others may freeze up in fear or flounder about due to lack of preparation or lack of confidence. How you perform becomes part of your résumé and your reputation. Repairing damage can be a difficult job and one that is best avoided.
When it's your time to perform, do you maintain your standards of professionalism? When you are inadequately prepared are you able to ad lib enough to successfully pull off what you are expected to do? What is the biggest obstacle for you in maintaining high standards?
