One of the easiest and most effective ways to go beyond what is required in your job is to learn from people around you about how to do things that aren't normally part of your job description but that need to be done, or at least should be. Learn how to document things that your boss needs in writing. If you have a friend doing a similar job at another company, find out what the job entails there. Chances are at least one of you could be doing something additional that the other one already does. Teach useful skills to coworkers and document processes that aren't fully described anywhere else.

The nice thing about this approach is that it is easy to identify where you are going to get the knowledge to go the extra distance. You can learn it from people you already work with and from friends with similar jobs. This is about how to improve your performance in little ways. Along the way, you will sometimes stumble over the bigger improvements. This is how to find the daily ones that add a few percent.
