Get a Step Ahead of the Rest

By: Angela Bainter

Do you want to stand out from other employees? Want to prove to your boss that you're ready to get ahead in your career? One way to show you're serious about what you do is to beat deadlines. By getting projects done ahead of schedule, you're demonstrating your assertiveness, your work ethic, and, most of all, your passion for the work you do. All of these qualities will set you apart from other employees as a leader in the workplace.

I love it when my employees get projects done ahead of schedule. It allows us to stay organized and to begin focusing on other pressing projects rather than procrastinating and falling behind. Plus, it shows me that they are invested in their work and that they want to do the best job possible.

The moral: get work done ahead of time. It will help propel your career to the next level.
