These 18 Ways to Become Indispensable are invaluable. Whether you are starting your first job, a new career or just want to make sure you’re always putting your best foot forward this book is a must read.

Management consultant, Glenn Shepard, whose previous books showed managers how to get the most from their workforce, now tells employees how to get the most out of their careers.

The author suggests rather than reading the book in a single sitting (easy to do, it’s a quick read!) to read one chapter a day for the next 18 working days.

Mr. Shepard’s advice won’t necessarily apply to your current situation or be practical for you to implement, but it is worth reading to make sure and to give you a different perspective.

A few takeaways, just from Chapter 3:

  • Don’t be mentally lazy. Be sure to think things through to the logical conclusion. p. 22
  • Don’t cherry pick the best tasks, do the unpleasant ones too. This means filling out paperwork, cleaning up, making sure the copier is filled with paper and toner, etc. p. 24
  • Know your “work quirks.” p. 26

My father named me after Sleeping Beauty. The princess theme stuck. Unfortunately, the only castle I can claim is the one in Disney Land. These are the musings of a princess without minions, knights or fairy tales. I have to do my own bidding.
