I am currently reading “The Spirit of Success” by Norman Drummond, the found of Columba 1400. This is a fairly easy read and hugely important for anyone in a leadership role whether at work or at home. The main thrust of the book is about balancing our head with our heart which is something I need to keep,working at.
The following wee section can be found in many other places on the Internet but I feel it is worth repeating here without any other comment.
There was an important job to be done and everybody was sure that somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that because it was everybody’s job. Everybody thought that anybody could do it, but nobody realised that everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that everybody blamed somebody when nobody did what anybody could have done.
