Will I Be Replaced?

No doubt, some are thinking, "Why should I record my knowledge and make it easier for my employer to replace me?" I understand the concern. My advice is that you consider this an opportunity to broaden your skill base, even if only out of self-interest on the chance you’re suddenly forced to seek new employment. Alternatively, you could be saving yourself from tremendous stress and frustration if you’re the person suddenly expected to carry on the work of others who've headed out the door.
