Here are few thoughts shared by Jeff Hyaden around ways to stand out!!

Be first with a purpose.

Don't just be the one who turns on or off the lights – be the one who gets in early or stays late in order to get things done. Not only will your performance stand out, you'll also start to...

Be known for something specific.

Pick a worthwhile mission, then excel at that mission. People will notice.

Create your own side project.

Excelling at an assigned project is expected. Excelling at a side project helps you stand out.

Put your muscle where your mouth is.

Everyone talks about problems. The people who help fix them stand out.

Show a little of your personal side.

Let people know a little about you; a few personal details add color and depth to your professional image.

Work harder than everyone else.

Nothing – nothing – is a substitute for hard work. Look around: How many people are working as hard as they can?

I don't have special talents. I am just passionately curious - Albert Einstein
