Someone Has to Do It

Motivational Power Quote

 

Someone Has to Do It

“The body of every organization is structured from four kinds

of bones. There are the wishbones, who spend all their time

wishing someone would do all the work. Then there are the

jawbones, who do all the talking, but very little else. The

knucklebones knock everything anything anyone else tries

to do. Fortunately, in every organization there are also

the backbones, who get under the load and

do most of the work.”

Leo Aikman 1908 - 1978, American Journalist, Humorist,

Speaker

 

As I see it . . . . . . .

Someone has to do it

 

When it comes right down to getting things done there are different groups of people.

 

The doers in life will dig in and do what has to be done . . . . Look to the doers to step up when there’s something that has to be done. The doer is highly motivated . . . . have the enthusiasm and the determination to successfully do  what has to be done.

 

When something has to be done . . . . there are those who wish someone else will step up and  do it. They will just as soon take a low profile in doing what has to be done. They mill around in the shadows and try to fade into the background . . . . So no one will notice them or ask to pitch in . . . . they are a non-player.

 

There are the talkers . . . . They talk a good game but when it comes right down to it  . . . . they don’t have game and they just keep on talking. They are just a big bag a wind with no substance.

 

You will also meet the hammer . . . . they live their life to intimidate and complain about other people and about what they do or don’t do . . . . They will also about complain and whine the organization at every opportunity.

 

With this group of people . . . . when all is said and done . . . . all they do is complain. They are a negative asset at best and a distracting element in any business.

 

When the group of negative influences are spinning their negative web .

. . .  of BS. The doers quietly put their backbone into the heavy lifting that has to be done. They quietly correct the condition without any fanfare and they successfully get the job done while the BS is running in the background.

 

When something has to get it done . . . . someone has to do it . . . . Look to the doers to get it done.
