A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….
Entering an award could be compared to ‘Storytelling’. The story you are conveying in the award entry is your story, your personal account of the work you do exceptionally well! Storytelling is something we all do naturally, starting at a young age, but there’s a difference between good storytelling and ‘great’ Jedi master storytelling.
Your first intergalactic battle in the awards process is to make sure that your story stands out as the best. Take time to create your story, use the force, don’t rush your responses and don’t leave the creation of these responses to last minute. A true award winning Jedi master makes sure that the responses are sufficient and detailed enough without writing a novel or a saga. Some of the best stories are the short stories!
Share your ideas with a young apprentice, your colleagues and rebel friends, they may be able to give you tips to enhance your story or other ideas that really help to set you apart from the rest.
Search your feelings, Be confident, honest and creative.
Taking the time to enter your story immediately gains recognition amongst your fleet, peers and colleagues and if you are one of the select few to win at these prestigious awards, it will give you a life time of personal Jedi mastery and “Happily ever after moments”
May the force be with you!
