Show Up!

This is the secret. If you show up to work focused and prepared for the day and work harder than anybody around you, the executive chef will notice. The chef will give you more responsibilities; you will move to the top of the promotion list because you have made a choice to do the job and to do it to the best of your abilities.

Do not give the chef any other option but to recognize you, Just do it! Believe it or not, it takes as much energy to do a great job as it does to do a poor job. So why not be great, do great? Trust me; you will feel better doing a great day of work as opposed to cheating yourself through the day.

Finding Time To Be Great 

"Focus on your work, not the titles. If you produce beyond expectations, the titles will come."
