How to Impress Your Boss
No matter what area of the company, non-profit, or public sector you work in, ask yourself these three questions every time you are about to review something you did with your boss:
- What am I trying to accomplish with this piece of work?
- Is this the best/only way to accomplish that mission?
- Is this my best work?
I guarantee you two things if you get into this habit. First, you will frequently stop and do more work on something before handing it into your manager. Second, you will get a raise and a promotion sooner than your friends. And yes, it really is that simple.
