Getting Things Done

Posted by Tom Locke on September 12th, 2014 filed in Business, History, Life

It has often been said that if you want to get something done give it to a busy person.  I have seen this axiom proven time and time again in both the business and volunteer communities.

Notice it states, “… if you want to get something done give it to a busy person” and not “… to a busy group“.  And if something is accomplished by a group, it is because of a strong leader, an individual who aspires to accountability, making things happen and meeting deadlines.

My good friend, legendary broadcaster, businessman and philanthropist, Red Robinson, sums it up best in a saying he has been using for decades:

In all the parks,

In all the cities,

There are no

Statues to committees
