How to Blow Your Boss’s Mind

We all want to get ahead. Still, even when it seems you’re doing everything right–you’re never late to work, rarely take a sick day, and always meet deadlines–promotions can be few and far between.

You’re putting the work in, so why aren’t you getting rewarded? The answer is simple: You don’t get promoted for fulfilling your boss’s expectations.

Your boss’s expectations are the price of entry. Even if you’re making a great effort and doing all that’s asked of you, you won’t stand out. You’ll be seen as someone who completes the minimum requirements, and no one who builds a great career is seen this way.

The trick to advancing your career and getting paid more is to add value by making certain your contributions are worth more than you’re paid. You want to go above and beyond so that you’re seen as someone highly valuable–someone the organization can’t live without.
