There is nothing worse than being punished for your strong work ethic and good deeds but, sadly, that is the way it goes sometimes. Often the only reward you get for kicking butt at your job is...more work. That is because so many companies like to load more work onto the backs of those who have proven their abilities. “You did a good job with this project,” they say. “Great, here are ten more we need completed by next week.” No thank you, no pat on the back, no raise. Just a heavier workload.
But that doesn’t mean you should stop working hard and doing your best. Not at all, you should always remain proud of the hard work you do. Just understand that certain admirable traits, such as showing up on time and getting stuff done before deadline, can be seen as a beacon to your employers and they may look at you as the new camel who needs a million straws on its back.
