Topics: Workfront

When I was hired for my first job, my father took me aside to give me an important insight. "Carolyn, you are motivated by gold stars, high grades, and lots of regular feedback," he said. "But you won't get that at work. Don't expect praise for merely doing what you were hired to do. If you keep getting paid, you will know you are doing a good job."
