- Were all pros already.
- We show up every day
- We show up no matter what
- We stay on the job all day
- We are committed over the long haul
- The stakes for us are high and real
- We accept remuneration for our labor
- We do not overidentify with our jobs
- We master the technique of our jobs
- We have a sense of humor about our jobs
- We receive praise or blame in the real world
