Horse Trading @ Work

Camels are traitorous; they walk thousands of paces and never seem to tire. Then suddenly, they kneel and die. But horses tire bit by bit. You always know how much you can ask them, and when it is that they are about to die. -Paulo Coleho (The Alchemist)

I think I see horses and camels at my office all the time. There are silent killers who will drop dead one day and be gone. And then there are others who will keep showing dissent at regular intervals to keep you abreast of their low morale. Be careful to identify your camels and horses and handle them accordingly.

I can very well relate to this!

And it's indeed very important to realize this esp. when you get on the verge of becoming a PM ;-).
