Credit Doesn't Matter

“You can accomplish anything in life, provided that you do not mind who gets the credit,” observed Harry Truman. Splendid thought. Leave your ego at the front door when you go to work today and just do superb work. Good things will happen for you. 

It’s 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’s about standing for a cause (as Pablo Picasso added, "It’s your Work in life that is the ultimate seduction. It's about being BIW (Best in the World) at what you do. It's about leaving people better than you found them. 

And it's not about who gets the credit for a job well done. People who are outstanding always get found. The cliche is true: The cream always rises to the top. The best always come to light. And the Great Ones among us can never be held back.
