Don’t covet the other fellow’s job if you are not prepared to accept the responsibility that goes with it.
How often do you look at those around you and say, “I could do any of their jobs better than they can if I only had the opportunity,” never realizing the price they have paid and the knowledge they have accumulated to earn the right to hold that position? It’s easy to be a Monday-morning quarterback and second-guess the actions of others. But it’s far more productive to recognize the contributions of others and give them the credit for a job well done. If you aspire to a higher level of recognition, demonstrate to others — as well as your peers — that you can be counted upon. The world’s greatest rewards accrue to those who always deliver on their promises.
