Want more responsibility? Do your best at the responsibilities you have.
Want better gigs? Do your best at the gigs you have.
Want a better job? Do your best at the job you have.
Want a bigger role? Do your best in a smaller role.
You know when you’re doing your best. You know when you’re not. And overwhelmingly often, it’s when you do your best work that better opportunities follow along. People notice when you do your best. It’s not a failsafe, but it’s the best option.
(Plus, doing your best at whatever is in front of you prepares you for what comes next: so not only do you get bigger opportunities, you get ready for them, too!)
