It's not my job! Have you ever said that in response to being asked to do something at work? Pulled out the "not in my job description" card? Well here's why you should never say that.
When I first started working, I remember wondering why there were some coworkers who would always say no when asked to do anything extra. They would exclaim, “ That isn’t part of my description.”
I’ve now been working for over 20 years, and I still hear people who say that. What I’m here to say to you is to never say that. If you have already started to, then I’m telling you to stop.
