This is how to rate yourself.

First, total the numbers you put beside the bullets. Your total score
will be from 0 to 60. Once you have your total, This is how to interpret your

46 to 60  You are definitely at the top of your game
and show signs of becoming a super-star, a certified member of the personal
excellence creme de la creme.

31 to 45  You are not yet setting the standard for
others; but you are showing real promise. You may be tempted to concentrate
your efforts on the principles where you gave yourself a “0” or a
“1;” but that would be a mistake. Give your best effort to raising the
“2” principles to “3.” Spend more effort getting great at
the things you are already good at than on improving those things you don’t
manage very well.

16 to 30  Give yourself credit for at least being
willing to complete the self-check. You are likely a latecomer who is
unfamiliar with life’s most important
. Nonetheless, you may have what it takes. Work at it, every day, in
every way. Also, identify a personal mentor whose style and approach you
respect and appreciate and then consider emulating the example being set for
you; identify a Simon worthy of being followed and then follow your leader.

are certainly your own person, sure enough; and ain’t that a relief! At least
those of us who are committed to doing it right, the first time, on time, every
time won’t have to spend much time hanging around with you and your friends, if
you actually have any.

Yes, you are right. It’s true. There are a lot more of you than There
are of us; but our numbers are growing; and as unlikely as it may seem today,
even you may one day decide to join us in our pursuit of personal excellence.
