Never Exactly as Requested

Always try go beyond what was instructed. Always do more than the standard task description.

If you're asked to make coffee, throw in a doughnut. Gotta photo-copy reports? Sort it, clip it, bind it, whatever, make the recipient feel like it's some hot conference hand-out.

Asked to describe event XYZ? Don't merely describe - throw in an analysis, what-ifs', action-steps, risks (and mitigation strategies), etc.

You get the drift.
