Over the last couple of weeks, I was rehearsing or doing shows almost every night. This week, I had the kids last night and don't dive back in until my Thunderdome team plays on Saturday.
Then I caught myself telling some folks on my staff that I never wanted our department to have the cutthroat vibe of an advertising agency. And for a work-related thing about how I approach things, I wrote:
I believe collaboration gets better results than competition.Um. Can you believe something deep in your heart...but forget it enough sometimes that you act like you believe the complete opposite?
I care more about effectiveness than awards.
And I think if I'm doing my job right, I'll never be the one
who gets the credit for the brilliant idea.
