Have you ever worked in a company where everyone was trying to get ahead? It is such discouraging place to be.
I’m tempted all the time to take credit, whether or not I deserve it. I am tempted to think no one will notice my talents if I don’t tell them.
Harry Truman said, “It is amazing what can be accomplished if it doesn’t matter who gets the credit.”
When I get hung up making sure everyone knows how cool I am, it discourages people from wanting to work with me. But if I make sure to give credit to the people who really are talented, we might actually accomplish the goal of our group.
Who knows, maybe we could even change the world!
