Are You an asset or just an expense?

As you go through your life right now, how do you truly see yourself? Do you se yourself as an asset for other people to have around them? Or are you more of a liability and expense for them to have you around? In other words do you contribute to the well being of others, or do you make others contribute to your own well being only, without giving anything back?
So whether at work or at home, whether doing it for money or for nothing, ask yourself, "Did I do a good job today? Was I an asset and not just an expense?" Author Richard L. Evans remarked, "It's priceless to find a person who will take responsibility, who will finish and follow through to the final detail - to know when someone has accepted an assignment that it will be effectively, conscientiously completed."
So again, are you one of those priceless people? Again whether doing it for money or any other reason, are you someone who can be trusted to be left alone to get the job done, knowing that it will be done and done properly and on time too? Or are you someone that everyone has to keep an eye on all the time, just to make sure that you even do the bare minimum required, let alone do it fully? Again, what say you now?
