"Look At Opportunities, Not Daily Job Routines."
Do an inventory of the job when you first start - look at how your skills match what is demanded, then see how you can make changes or enhancements which are not obvious to your supervisors - example I have a large population of chronic ill employees - I can give them managed care, but how do I prevent future health issues.
