Most jobs are given with a simple set of instructions that outlines what the bare minimum is. We call this the standard.
You’re expected to clock in on time, properly dressed, finish projects under budget, turn in your TPS reports…
Yet, we are surprised when someone goes beyond what has been asked of them.
It isn’t in your job description to care, to be brave, or to do generous work. But that is what the great ones do.
To all those laying it on the line right now, thank you.
Keep making things better by making better things.
