We can be excellent at our jobs, but that’s different from being a great employee.
We can hit all the marks on hard skills, but miss the one, big huge important part of our jobs:
We have to give our bosses peace of mind.
Our bosses aren’t supposed to be chasing us for assignments and deadlines and coming to meetings on time.
Your performance is about more than good work; it’s about being a good worker.
If you can’t get your work done well AND on time — then there’s a problem.
