Isn’t it funny …
When the other fellow takes a long time to do something, he is slow; but when I take a long time doing something, I am thorough.
When the other fellow does not do it, he is lazy; but when I don’t do it, I am too busy
When the other fellow goes ahead and does something without being told, he is overstepping his bounds; but when I go ahead and do something without being told, that is initiative.
When the other fellow states his side of the question strongly, he is bull-headed; but when I state a side of a question strongly, I am being firm.
When the other fellow overlooks a few of the rules of good manners, he is rude; but when I skip a few of the rules, I am original.
When the other fellow does some thing that pleases the boss, that is crawling; but when I do something that pleases the boss, that is co-operation.
When the other fellow gets ahead, he had the lucky breaks; but when I get ahead, that is hard work.
Funny isn’t it?
Or is it lack of recovery humility?
