There are people


There are people who suck energy out of every situation – don’t work with them.

There are others who add the energy, no matter where they are or what they’re doing – find ways to work with them.

There are people who kick every decision making can down the road – avoid working with them if you need to make progress.

There are others who think, and consider, and question, and then decide, knowing they can rework and course-correct later – these are the ones who get things done.

There are people who value sizzle but don’t put in the work to make the sausage – don’t have these people on your team.

There are others who are all about the work – every team needs these people.

There are people who everyone knows are more trouble than they’re worth – move them on.

Skippy strategy: Work only with the kind of people you know will bear fruit.
