You may be at an entry level job right now and being asked to do simple tasks, but someone is watching you, and you never know when the opportunity may arise for you to show someone the talents you have. You may get a big break from someone at any time, and if you're not performing at a high level at all times, you may miss out on an opportunity. Don't think that what you're doing isn't important, because it is; someone is always depending on you. "
