You want to quickly ship stuff, and that means cutting corners sometimes. However, in every step of the way, you need to make sure to differentiate between being agile and being lazy. Are you putting off a little extra work because you’re afraid of the outcome? Do you want to throw your work out there because you’re tired and want to continue watching House of Cards?

This could be what sets you apart from the majority: your attention to detail. Spending an extra 5 minutes to refine the message in your email. Making sure the numbers add up before you send them out.

Especially on Mondays, which can be a little hard to crack, don’t stop pushing your work and yourself. And if you happen to take a shortcut: make sure you know you do and know why you’re doing it.
