Showing Work

Being humble is not the same as living in the shadows.

It’s tragic when someone hides their good work. The eyes of the world are not upon us. Everyone is looking at their belly button. If we do not shout after their attention, they won’t look at what we have done. The boss does not have the time to see what is working, that which goes well – it’s the things that go wrong that sink the business.

You don’t have to be arrogant. No need to be conceited. It’s not necessary to seek protagonism.

You have to show work. The value – or lack thereof – that others attribute to it is up to them. But you have to show it.
