when he finds that the signpost deceived him. Instead of lengthening
his stride he is satisfied with “good enough.” He has no goals, no
visions. He accepts no challenges.
“What’s the use?” and “Why should I?” are the two most fatal
phrases in the English language. They mark the dividing line between
success and failure for thousands of human beings.
Undoubtedly, management does have the responsibility for making
many important decisions. But there are a good many decisions vital
to successful operations which management does not make.
For example, the decision to avoid the costly waste of materials or
time is one that must be made by the employee. Keeping quality high
by putting one’s best skills and care into the product represents a
decision by the employee.
