There’s three categories of people and you can be grouped by “what people WOULD say about you if asked”.
That’s not to suggest we care completely about what others say about us, but for the sake of this example, it’s worth exploring.
“Bill, he’s OK. He’s late a lot and leaves early. He misses deadlines and really doesn’t seem to care, in fact, he thinks he’s the best at everything and he doesn’t need to do the work.”
“Bill, I like him. Good guy. Works hard. Does his job.”
“Bill? Geez, the guy’s a machine. It’s actually unbelievable what he gets done… I’m not even sure he’s human. He’s the first one here, the last to leave, never complains and his results are off the chart. That’s my goal… to be like Bill. If I was, I know I’d be successful!”
