11/2/11 – A Slice of Humble Pie

Standard

“It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” – Harry S Truman 

I think that this is so important in today’s world, especially in the political mess we have put ourselves in. These words are true in business, politics, marriages, friendships, you name it.  If we stopped putting so much focus on who gets the credit, we could get so much more done.

Be humble…Be willing to share the lime-light…Be able to admit when you’re wrong and move on humbly when you’re right. At the end of the day, when a team works together right, all that matters is the accomplishment that was made at the end. Too many times ego and power get involved and get in the way of the bigger picture. Do things because you want to do them and believe in their outcome.

As I told one of my best friends just the other day, “It’s about the journey, not the destination.” Enjoy it and work together. There are very few things we can do alone. And, really, who cares who made it happen, just be proud to be part of something great!

There is a song by Norah Jones that I meditate to, which may surprise some of. Click the pie and it will take you there…Go ahead, take a slice!
