You can be the first person to show up to work.
You can be the one who jumps on the project no one wants to do.
You can be the one who deals with solving the difficult problem.
You can be the one who doesn’t get to go on the research trip.
You can be the one who over-delivers on what’s been promised.
You can be the one who mentors the new people.
You can be the one who stays late to pick up someone else’s slack.
You can be the one who foregoes credit in order to achieve success.
You can be the person people want to work with.
You can be the person people choose to have on their team.
It’s easy if you decide to be that person. It’s hard and difficult if you decide to fight every notion and keep saying “that’s not my job”. It’s choice.
This series of content is a small experiment. I pledged to create a piece of content on my site for the next 365 days. You can read the opening post here. The posts aren’t limited to thoughts or ideas, they’re really just a way for me to create original content. If you got any feedback/questions, please reach out. Thanks for looking.
