“I know that you’d prefer to be spending your time on other projects. But at this point, I think you’re the best one for this job. If I gave the work to someone else, we’d both lose. I’d be stuck relying on substandard work, and you’d lose a chance to show that you’re a team player. I need you to come through and generate the results that I know you’re capable of producing. I can’t promise you that there won’t be other assignments down the line that are equally unappealing, but I can assure you that your willingness to contribute to the team’s success will not go unnoticed.”
