I thought I was the model employee

I was loyal.

I was responsible.

I was dependable.

I was hard-working.

I was smart.

I was honest.

I was hungry.

I was willing to sacrifice sleep, family, and love — all for the good of the company. I was the model employee, wasn’t I?

But then it hit me. Getting it done on-time, correctly, and with a smile on my face wasn’t enough.

All that stuff was nothing without status. Status of the project. Status of the deliverable. Status of the status.

Once I figured out how to give status, I figured out how to be the model employee.

Give status and you can be a model employee.
