So, I saw this a few days ago on my Twitter feed.
As you guys know Joey and I’ve got providers that come through here a couple times a day to help us get stuff done.
Now, we could just say, “Do it,” and trust me, it’s hella tempting sometimes, I can guaran damn tee you we wouldn’t have help long. Younger J wouldn’t think twice of going that route. Yeah, I was popular in all the WRONG ways growing up.
We tell people from the get go the stuff we ask is stuff we’d do ourselves IF we could. Sometimes, it is stuff that just takes hella long time to get done, so we ask help. We try to help out as much as we can in those incidences like holding doors or letting them put groceries on the backs of our chairs or laps. Still, we say, “let’s.” That’s the difference between being a boss and a leader. Still, sometimes it doesn’t get done, but that’s on them at that point.
People respect leaders that’ll get their hands dirty as opposed to bosses that sit on their asses in their fuzzy slippers stuffing their pie hole with bon bons.
Be good to each other.
