Thought for the week – 8

This is an old story but one I’m sure we all recognise…

    There were four people named Everybody, Somebody, Anybody, and Nobody.

    There was an important job to be done and Everybody was asked to do it.
    Everybody was sure Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it.

    Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

    It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

The flip side of this coin is that, once we all start taking just a little bit more responsibility, things do get done. As a trite but true saying goes:

    To assume makes an ass of u and me

… Have a great week!

"I was very impressed by Linda's determination to help and the constructive, but persistent, manner in which she identified issues and then tried to resolve them. After recent progress I was again reaching a stage where I seemed to be spinning my wheels, and she has given me fresh impetus to start moving forward again."
