Having no doubt heard about the value of going over and above, what’s stopping you from doing more than you’re currently doing?
It’s your willingness to do more than what’s written in your job description that’ll get you noticed. Similarly, it’s your commitment to delivering a better quality service than promised to your customers, that’ll set you apart from the competition.
Likewise, doing more for your spouse or children than what’s typically expected, and being a consistent presence for your friends, is what’ll deepen your relationships and form the basis of your reputation.
So, what’s stopping you from going over and above?
I challenge you to take initiative and be proactive — not because you want to be recognised, admired, or even get ahead, but because you can. And because you know you can, and you have the capacity to do so, you should.
Where possible, do good to others. Why? Because you can.
Don’t be lured into thinking that going over and above requires the initiation of elaborate projects or the purchase of expensive gifts, it doesn’t. After all, it’s the small things that matter.
You can go over and above and get great results by simply doing the small, seemingly insignificant things, that others choose not to do. It’s that easy.
