Two Kinds of People

"My grandfather once told me that there

were two kinds of people:

those who do the work and those who take the credit.

He told me to try to be in the first group;

there was much less competition."

Indira Gandhi, Indian Prime Minister


 As I see it. . . . . . . .

Two kinds of people   

We see them in our lives everyday, there is a group of people who go out and get the job done without looking for fanfare. They will do what has to be done when it needs to be done because it has to be done.  

There is another group of people who looks to take the credit for what is done well and disassociate themselves from anything that is not done successful.  

Group one are the mover and shakers. They focus on getting things done and they're not looking for recognition. These are the people that other people will seek out when a job has to be done and done well.    

Group two does marches to the beat of a different drummer. They do very little and are looking for credit for what other people accomplish. People in this group can scam the system for awhile but over time they will be found out for what they don't do. They talk a good story but do very little.  

The people in group one will be appreciated by the group of people that they surround themselves with for someone that can be counted on and a valued resource.  

There are two kinds of people, one that your can counter on to get things done and those who that try to talk a good game and apply very little effort and gets very little done.

Possibly another group. Those who they get the urge to work, lie down and hope it passes quickly.

Good morning Lou, leave it to Pat Kennedy to point me in the right direction! So true, and I for one would much rather be in the first group.

I would say in a competitive world you need to be both combined. You need to work hard and no need to be a martyr, get the credit where it is due also.
