Sometimes, there are just too many quotes to pick one. This week, I’m sharing several of them with you. Each of them is provocative, so take a moment to consider their meaning for your life, particularly in the workplace.
Winston Churchill practiced what he preached and often called for “a premium on effort” and “a penalty on inertia”.
If you’re not careful, you’ll conclude that it rhymes with the rewards that so many dislike about giving trophies to every team in a young sports league regardless of their success. I don’t support that practice, and while I get that it’s intended to reward everyone for participating, it also fails to teach the lessons those young athletes will face later in life.
Churchill’s remark is intended to “favor grace” for those who try hard, and distaste for those who aren’t trying hard.
I can get behind that sentiment. How about you? Share your thoughts in the comments below
