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. 
 
In this episode: 
  • A tale of two interns 
  • How you hurt yourself when you don’t deliver (even if your rationalize it)
  • The mindset that lowers your career ceiling 
  • How reliability leads to recommendations 
  • Why getting shit done is crucial when you start your career
