How do I make myself indispensable to my new boss?

Q: How do I make myself indispensable to my new boss?

A: To be truly indispensable, you would have to be someone your boss cannot get along without. That would mean you might get calls and emails from him or her from before dawn to the dead of night. And how could you get away for a vacation? Be careful what you ask for; instead of indispensability, strive to be important to your boss through consistently high performance, a dedicated client service approach, a collegial demeanor, and a can-do attitude in the office.
