For decades, my late father, Phil Carr, had this saying printed on a plain piece of copier paper above his desk at IBM in San Jose. It had some spots on it, and was slightly cockeyed. One could tell it had been copied and shared multiple times. Probably by the hard-working secretaries (even temp ones like me) who worked there.Made in the USA image

"It's Amazing How Much

Work Gets Done ...

When No One Cares

Who Gets The Credit."

Can anyone else relate to this thought?

Too often, narrow-minded people take an attitude of "Not My Job".

In contrast, positive team players realize "It's All My Job."

I'm not advocating a workaholic lifestyle; more of "We're all in this together-we sink or swim together".

The same applies at home as well as at work - if it needs doing, do it. Don't worry about whose job it might be.

We often forget what our main goal is. This takes place when we try to make sure we get the credit.

The goal, is to get a task done. We should want it completed well and forget about who gets the accolade.
