is the underlying rule that governs all the others – know your job well, do it
well and be better than anyone else at doing it. It’s that simple. The secret part is to make sure nobody knows
how hard you have to work to do it so well.
You can do all your learning in secret, in private – you just don’t let
on, don’t let anyone know you do this – and never ever let anyone know you’ve
read this book; it is your secret bible.
The important thing is to look calm and efficient, on top of everything
and totally in control. You glide through your daily work with ease and
confidence. You are unflappable and
unstoppable. Bottom line is, however,
you must be really good at your basic job.
…And get your work
all too easy for your work to get overlooked in the busy hurly burly of office
life. You’re slaving away and it can be
hard to remember that you need to put in some effort to boost your individual
status and personal kudos for your work. But it’s important. You have to make
your mark so you stand out and your promotional potential will be realized.
best way to do this is to step outside the normal working routine. If you have to process so many widgets each
day – and so does everyone else – then processing more won’t do you that much
good. But if you subject a report to
your boss of how everyone could process more widgets then you’ll get noticed.
The unsolicited report is a brilliant way to stand out from the crowd. It shows you’re thinking on your feet and
using your initiative. But it mustn’t be used too often. If you submit your
boss to a barrage of unsolicited reports you’ll get noticed but in completely
the wrong way. You have to stick to
submit a report occasionally

sure your name is prominently displayed.
sure the report will be seen not only by your boss, but by their boss as well.
doesn’t have to be a report – it can be an article in the company newsletter.
course, the very best way to get your work noticed is to be very, very good at
your job. And the best way to be good at
your job is to be totally dedicated to doing the job and ignoring all the
rest. There is a vast amount of
politics, gossip, gamesmanship, time wasting and socializing that goes on in
the name of work. It isn’t work. Keep
your eye on the ball and you’ll be already playing with a vast advantage over
your colleagues. The Rules Players stays
focused. Keep your mind on the task at
hand – being very good at your job – and don’t get distracted.
