The other 80% rule

Do you worry that you aren’t doing enough in your job? Do you find yourself thinking that a smarter, more motivated, more ambitious person could overcome the obstacles that you struggle with at work? That you are somehow falling short in your boss’ eyes?

Here’s a newsflash: you worry about this more than anybody else, most of all your boss. 

Unless you are creating actual problems for your boss, you are invisible, and that is exactly how you want it. Just by quietly getting things done (however much that is), you’re already doing better than 80% of your coworkers.

So stay under the radar, do your thing, and stop worrying. You are already doing plenty.
