There is a difference between getting your work done and getting the work done.
Your work is about you and your assignment; the work is about the mission and others.
When you stop working and contributing when your work is done you have relegated yourself to just being another employee who will eventually be replaced when another employee can be found who can do your job better.
However, when it matters to you that the work gets done, no matter whose assignment it is, you become a stakeholder and influencer who will eventually find yourself at the table where the real work and decisions are made.
- The ONE THING for today: You have two choices today when it comes to work. The focus can be on getting your work done or your focus can be on getting the work done. The outcome of your choice will have vastly different outcomes–for you and your company’s future.
