And Then, I Got It

One of the managers at yesterday’s program talked about fighting the changes his manager wanted him to make when he was first hired.

“I’ve worked here twice,” he said. “The first time I thought I knew it all and that man right there (pointing to a manager across the table) had a lot of confidence in me. He kept telling me, ‘If you’ll just do it this way it’ll work.’ But, I wouldn’t listen and I left.

“After awhile I came back and started to listen and then I got it. And the job worked just like he told me it would. It took me awhile to work my way up into management, but now here I am. And I’m still listening to him.”

Is someone or something telling you and me to “just get it?”

How long will it be before we do?
