5. Refusing to lower your standards and produce less
than the best possible even if the company doesn't
recognize the difference (there's a difference between
working OT happy and working OT mad).

Touche! How about pure passion for what you do and the
quality of it? As a technical writer every project should be considered a
feather in your experience cap. I never think of it as giving to my
employer, but rather broadening my experience.
