Hello Paul - although people seem to acknowledge its truth, putting the effort forth to achieving the goal in this quote need not be elusive.

Good morning again, Paul... that Harry Truman was a very wise man and totally under-appreciated as far as I'm concerned.

Good morning Paul. Harry was a very wise man. Some of my best ideas were even better when credited to others. Enjoy your day.

As they say, teamwork makes the dream work, haha.  Some things we are able to do ourselves but having a solid team always makes life easier!

Hi Paul,

My husband has that quote on a plaque.  When he was working, he had it right above the light switch in his office so he would see it every time he was coming and going.  I love that image!

Hi Paul- this has always been a favorite quote of mine. So many people are more interested in getting credit than seeing the job done well or at all.
