…is not the same as obeying the list.
Do you make the list you check off, follow and work on every day? When does it get made? Who approves it? Do you identify tasks or perform them?
If you had a better list, would you do better work? If you made the list instead of just obeying it, would you be a more valuable member of the team?
Yes, asking questions is often more valued than answering them. (If they're the right questions.)
