My friend Mike and I were talking tonight about those very special people at work.
These are the people you can give a project to, and you know they are going to deliver something on time and of superior quality. These people will harass people on their team to make it all happen. They will kick your ass, show up at your home, call you all night, whatever.
They never have excuses unless someone actually died. But even then, they are likely to pull it off.
These people are the ones who succeed in life. Their value is recognized. They become the foundation of a team. You need them. Badly.
You just know when you give them an assignment, you don’t have to worry.
