This is a tale of two interns.
Intern number one was intelligent, passionate, and impressive. But he had a fatal flaw. He didn’t get shit done.
Intern number two wasn’t as impressive initially. He didn’t have the same people skills. But always delivered. He was reliable.
Reliability is simple, but so few people do it. If you are relentlessly reliable, if you get shit done, you are going places.
Because having impressive skills is a lot less important than simply and consistently getting shit done.

- The mindset that lowers your career ceiling
- How reliability leads to recommendations
