1. Forget about excuses 不要寻找借口
No boss cares why an assignment wasn't done. It's your job to get it done and on time.
2. Don't aim for perfection 不要苛求“完美”
Getting it done well and on time is much more important than doing it "Perfectly"
3. Carrying your share is not enough 只做份内事是不够的
Bosses value people who do their job and look around for, create or ask for more real work.
4. Follow through 自始至终完成工作
Tie up the loose ends of your assignments. Don't wait to be reminded, particularly by a Supervisor.
5. Anticipate problems 预见到问题
When your responsibilities depend on input from others, check their plans and their understanding of what you're requesting.
6. Be resilient about problems 坚韧乐观地面对难题
Part of carrying your responsibilities is understanding that unforeseeable failures by others are a routine part of work life. When problems occur, no one is picking on you and you can't excuse it as bad luck.
7. Don't take problems to your boss 别把问题留给你的上司
If you lack the authority, come prepared with solutions when you broach the problem. Even though your boss may not use your solutions, you've made an impression as a problem solver - not as a problem collector.
8. Attendance counts 出满勤
People quickly become aware of who makes an effort to be there and who uses any excuse to miss a day.
9. Don't be a squeaking wheel 不要难字当头，喋喋不休
Don't be seen as " Here comes a problem".
10.Don't carry grudges 不要嫉妒怀恨他人
You cannot win them all. So don't squander your energy, the goodwill of your allies, and the patience of your boss by turning every issue into a crusade.
11.Choose your battles carefully 慎重选择是否“开战”
Ask yourself: how much difference the problem really makes. Is it worth making an enemy? Do I have a realistic chance of winning
12.Deal directly with the person who makes the decision直接与决策者打交道
Dealing with people with less authority may be easier on your nerves, but you'll be wasting time and effort.
