Dear readers,

Thank you for coming here!

This is the episode 4 of the “Good employee” series.

When I thought of this topic, I struggled to decide whether this would be a better fit for the “Good manager” series.

However, I did get this idea as an employee. It would be good for employees to take the manager’s perspective from time to time anyway.

Moreover, I am an individual contributor now (aka employee) and I do not know whether I will have enough material to continue the “Good manager” series.

Therefore, I decided to post it here in the “Good employee” series.

When I think of my past experiences, there are two types of responsibilities I take on, corresponding to the “Positive” and “Negative” mindset I follow in different stages of my career.

Type 1: The responsibilities to deliver success — Positive mindset

Type 2: The responsibilities to take punishment for failure — Negative mindset
