Regardless of what kind of work you do, it’s usually not difficult to set yourself apart by going beyond the status quo of being average.

All too many working environments are filled with all kinds of people who are just ambling through their jobs. Many don’t want to be there at all, and never miss a chance to let everyone know how much they’d rather be somewhere else.

Others are embarrassingly opportunistic, focused entirely on themselves and “what’s in it for them.” Their every move is built on pleasing the people they think will determine their future. Still others in most workplaces base their time and energy on the goal of just getting by. They do what they need to do, for the most part, but they rarely take risks and rarely excel.

Sadly, these characterizations are true even in a lot of “helping” professions– in academia, in non-profit organizations, in the clergy, and so on. Setting a goal of doing the least amount expected of you may have started in the corporate cubicle world, but the norms of mediocrity have since spread throughout most professions.

Fortunately, there is a clear alternative to ambling through your workday. The alternative is to be excellent, to make a huge difference in your working environment, help others do better, and increase your own workplace stock along the way.

Focus on these eight principles to become a superhero in pretty much any job:

Never turn down a project by saying, “That’s not in my job description.”

We’re often taught that high achievers carefully select the tasks and projects that they work on. This is true in the long run, but when you’re getting established somewhere, you shouldn’t be so selective. Instead, do the things that need to be done but that no one wants to do.

You can always point out later that you’ve done everything you’re supposed to do and a lot more, but don’t whine about your projects while they’re underway. If someone asks you to do something, it’s usually because they think you’ll do it well. Impress them and do it even better.

Focus externally and continually ask for feedback.

Ask your boss, your colleagues, and your subordinates the same question every couple of weeks: “What can I do better?” If they don’t give you a straight answer, they’re usually just being polite. Ask again.

Also ask all of these people, “How can I help you?” Spend time every day focusing on the people around you. Think about their needs and preemptively help them. Make it clear you’re not helping them so they can help you later; just make their lives easier and help them look good to others.

Dear opinion writers:

I bet you thought it would be fun getting to write for the only section of a newspaper that’s allowed to be somewhat biased.

You probably thought the opinion desk was going to be a well-deserved break from the linear, “use the right word or else risk your journalistic integrity” writing and fact-paranoia so common in the rest of the newspaper. Heck, you don’t even need to interview people to write an opinion piece.

But instead, your writing has only fueled a passionate response from a collection of people who don’t read past the headline, would prefer to lazily comment on social media instead of writing a letter to the editor and who accuse you of being the worst journalist in the history of journalism.

The external monologue of the comment section often sounds like this:

“How dare you write an article for the opinion section that’s dripping with your personal opinion? As a journalist, it’s your job to keep your writing in the hands of the goddess ‘Neutrality’ and never comment on current events. Stick to a robotic output of content that doesn’t offend anyone.”

On the other hand, if you can’t manage to stoke the fires of controversy, your nightly prayer to the editorial gods is that your writing gets any reaction and not the dreaded, no notification-inducing article that makes you beg for even a single mad or shocked Facebook reaction. You’d even settle for a patronizing blue thumbs-up.

Then there’s the fact that everyone does indeed have an opinion, so the questions that hover over your keyboard like the quips of a demented Microsoft Office Assistant are: what makes your opinion so goddamn unique? What kind of prolonged, narcissistic, self-aggrandizing ego-trip do you have to be on to write for the opinion desk?

You think you’re special because that’s what your parents have told you your entire life and now it’s translated into your writing, apparently.

Underlying all of this is the question you ask yourself on a regular basis: what’s the point?

Any good opinion writer will tell you that the point is to start a conversation. You do all the research, make your argument, and yes, put your opinion in writing so that someone will respond, and maybe even point out something you missed.

But in the AvaCostume Womens Embroidery Casual Flats Slipon Shoes Blue oMOFA9AnY
, it seems the only way to elicit any response, let alone conversation, is to write outlandish and against-the-grain pieces that make readers angry enough to comment. Controversy breeds very loud opinions.

Just take a look at what happened in the Daily Titan’s opinion section leading up to AmoonyFashion Womens Buckle Cow Leather PeepToe HighHeels Assorted Color Sandals Blue QBgpb3aB8

However, because of the scale and neglectedness of wild animal suffering, we do want to remain alert for opportunities to direct appropriate resources toward that cause. We try to remain aware of the state of wild animal advocacy generally, and of particular groups working on addressing wild animal suffering from perspectives close to ours.

We sometimes write about wild animal suffering, to help advance general awareness, one of the ways in which we think resources can be well-directed at this point in time. Bernie Mev Womens TW71 Black Nubuck BicgEHKO
If a new group focusing on wild animal suffering becomes able to demonstrate success in a way we think will be compelling to our audience, we would expect to attempt to review it more closely and consider it for a recommendation.

We do very limited work on advocacy around other specific animal issues such as use of animals in laboratories and companion animal homelessness, because we think good opportunities to help animals are much easier to find in the area of farm animal advocacy (and additionally the less popular area of wild animal suffering).

The work we do in these areas serves mainly to check our assumptions about the scale, tractability, and neglectedness of various causes. If we found these assumptions were wrong, we would reconsider which areas we should focus on.

Our scale, tractability, neglectedness framework is similar to the frameworks used by Reef Womens Cozy Slipper Aqua avgjvvehq
and AmoonyFashion Womens Closed Round Toe Low Heel Cow Leather Frosted Solid Pumps with Bandage Yellow 0h4H3W7
. Both organizations discuss cause prioritization focusing primarily on causes that increase global welfare for humans.

Alternate criteria might include the severity of the suffering the animals endure or the complexity of their nervous systems. We treat both of these as included in the amount that the animals would benefit from successful work on the problem.

While tracking is done in a variety of ways for different types of animals in different countries, very little attention is paid to non-vertebrates used in research. For example, one US report states: “In this report, animal is defined as any nonhuman member of the five classes of vertebrates: mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and fish…. Other creatures customarily included in the animal kingdom, such as invertebrates (e.g., worms, insects, and crustaceans), are excluded by this definition. The use of human subjects is not examined in this assessment.” —U.S. Congress, Office of Technology Assessment. (February 1986). Alternatives to Animal Use in Research, Testing, and Education .
