I hope that you fulfill the requirements of your job description.

Delivering projects, meeting deadlines, hitting KPI’s.  They’re all important.

But in addition to that, I also hope that you do some things for free.

You don’t get paid extra to be enthusiastic, but that’s not a good enough reason not to be.

Asking a colleague how their day is going isn’t necessarily a part of your role, but it’s still crucial.

So by all means, do what you’re paid to do.

But know that the things you do for free are what will add significant value, set you apart and help to build your career.
