Going The Extra Mile

Nine times out of ten when I start my day I see the following set of trash cans as I arrive to the office. I keep the trash cans under my desk on the right-most side which is exposed to the hallway so that the person who empties the trash/recycling can access them easier. Every time I see someone hasn’t gone the extra one or two steps to put the bins back under my desk once emptied amazes me. We all have jobs to do and when I get home I empty the trash, clean toilets, and do anything and everything needed like we all do. At work I would empty my own trash but a janitorial service does it for us (the task itself isn’t the point).

Always go the extra mile and take pride in what you do.

“No one ever attains very eminent success by simply doing what is required of him; it is the amount and excellence of what is over and above the required, that determines the greatness of ultimate distinction.” – Charles Francis Adams
