There's a book called "Linchpin: Are you indispensable?" by the famous Seth Godin.
I've read the book few years ago. It's quite a good book, thin and light can finish even a day. And I sort of agree with him the importance of being indispensable at work and I've learned to become one.
But the more experiences I have, I have to say I wouldn't want to be indispensable. I would want to be dispensable so that people stop relying on me and I have more time to do other things - if not greater but more challenging.
So NO MORE EMAILS please!
I'm on EL for goodness sake.
