When 110% Just Isn’t Cutting It…

10279to5.jpg

To start closing out this afternoon, and make you feel pretty guilty if you were planning on sneaking out of the office around 4:45, is a terrific essay from those terrific fellas over at ideasonideas. This time around it’s a piece called “9 to 5 = Average” and it’s all about the importance of getting the job done, but more so about going above and beyond, to take a certain passion in your work, the kind you tried to associate yourself with when you were begging for the job in the first place. It’s a great read and one of those things that you take a look at and think, “Dang, that’s right.” Granted, it’s going to be a little frustrating for some people, if you’re not in a position at a place that you really care about, but for those of us who are lucky enough to have landed a spot, it’s a good call to arms to maybe start pushing yourself a little harder.
