1. Spend an hour a week thinking of new ideas you can implement at your federal workplace without being asked, do them — and present them to your manager.
2. Get in the habit of skimming a lot of publications rather than reading only a few. Clip articles of interest and mail or give them to key persons in your organization with a short note, “FYI – thought this might interest you.”
3. Don’t focus on how you can succeed. Focus on how you can help others succeed. If you make a positive difference in their lives, your success will follow naturally.
