You’ve been told to “go the extra mile” for as long as you can remember, but did you know if you went that extra mile you’d likely be alone. Few are willing, nor even want, to go the extra mile, thinking to themselves, “Why am I working so hard when no one else is making the effort?” That’s why that extra mile can be such a desolate place, yet one that’s ripe with opportunities.
Get to your job early and stay late. Be helpful, ask questions, and offer assistance. Touch base with clients and peers. Do your homework and practice your skills.
Every day ask yourself what others aren’t doing and do that one extra thing you can think of.
Go the extra mile consistently and you’ll find the success you’re looking for.
