How Can I Make Sure I Never Get Fired?


After a recent speech, an audience member asked me, "How can I make sure I never get fired?" Without hesitating, I answered, "Make yourself indispensable, and make your boss love you." Somewhat taken aback, she pressed further, "But if I'm a team player, and I share knowledge graciously, how can I be indispensable?"

"Simple," I replied, "Be excellent."
