As professionals responsible for supplying the essential materials and services necessary for our employers to be successful, we cannot become comfortable or complacent just because we have been functionally and reasonably efficient in the past. We cannot presume that our current skills and knowledge will allow us to rest on our past laurels. We continually need to improve or "add value" to ourselves, both professionally and personally, to meet the higher expectations our employers will have for us in the future. How we prepare ourselves today will not only have a deep and lasting effect on how we conduct our jobs in the future, but also will affect whether we will even have our jobs.
