Have you ever noticed the relationship between those that contribute and those that whine.
The bad news is there is a highly inverse relationship between contributing and whining.
– Those that contribute, don’t whine–they are focused on how to make things better!
– Those that whine, don’t contribute–they complain and naysay, but add no real value.
The good news is that some solid contributors can more than counterbalance the whiners.
– Unfortunately, too often the whiners outnumber the contributors.
– But fortunately the contributors outweigh the whiners.
Despite your best efforts, you may not be able to make the whiners stop whining and throwing up roadblocks.
You’re often best-off spending your time working with the other contributors who want to see things through to success.
Be a leader, not a babysitter and help the contributors win! 😉
