“you can accomplish anything in life, provided you do not care who gets the credit”. Brilliant thought. Leave your ego at the front door when you go to work today and just do superb work. Good things will happen. Yes, for you!!
It is so human to crave applause and recognition and acclaim. We all want to be appreciated by our peers and revered by the tribe. But leadership is about a lot more than trying to look good in the eyes of others. It is actually standing for a cause. It is your work in life that is the ultimate seduction.
It is about being best in the world at what you do. It is about leaving people better than you found them. And it is certainly not about worrying who gets the credit for a job well done.
People who are outstanding always get found out. This is a fact: The cream always rises to the top. The best always comes to light. Great ones among us can never be held back.
