Don’t be the guy that lives in a box; one that only does what he’s told to do, only what he is assigned, just the bare minimum.

Life doesn’t occur in a box with set parameters. Sometimes you will have to stay late. Sometimes you will have to do more than your fair share. Sometimes you will find yourself doing things that “aren’t in your job description.”

Have a work ethic to get the job done. Don’t be afraid to go above and beyond. Take some personal leadership and do what you do well.

We all have a guy we work with who doesn’t carry his own weight, never can stay late, and is incredibly mediocre. Don’t be that guy.

Anyone can be a robot and complete tasks as they are dished out, but few people can be the go-to-guy where people know the job will get done and get done well.
