Q: A co-worker is always clipping articles for my boss and bragging about new studies he’s seen that affect our business. My boss eats it up. I just do my work—and I’m far more productive. Should I be pulling the same stunts?

A: Hold on a second. You accuse your rival of keeping the boss informed! It sounds like he has an eye for business information and passes it along. What’s the crime? While productivity counts, don’t assume that you’re in a race based solely on who gets more done. Knowledge is power. If your boss sees you as a one-dimensional workhorse who doesn’t keep up with industry trends, you can work yourself into a going-nowhere career.
