    others in your line of work

    Does this "others in your line of work" mean the same level workers? Like if you are a manager in a company, the same level managers, not like your subordinates or bosses? The interpretation is "people in the same field", which sounds too broad.

    29)What is the quickest way for you to measure your effectiveness at work? Maybe you have long-term measurements in place, such as monthly or yearly goals. But what if you want to know how you’re doing today? You could look at your to-do list. You could also ask your boss. But maybe the best way would be to see what others in your line of work are doing . That would tell you if you were ahead or behind them. And if you were behind other workers, you could try to figure out what you’re doing wrong. It may not be the only way to measure your effectiveness, but it certainly can provide a good reality check.

    Re: others in your line of work

    For me, "others in your line of work" simply means people in the same field.

    A store manager, assistant manager, checkout worker and shelf-stacker all work in retail. They are all in the same line of work.

    However, in the piece you posted, it suggests that they are people at the same level. It would a little pointless for a store manager to try to gauge his effectiveness at work by comparing himself/herself with a shelf-stacker.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
