I don’t know where I first heard this, but it has stuck with me ever since. I probably was complaining about a project, or telling my boss it was too hard to get something done on time.
I was giving him my 2 cents.
What I should have been giving him was my full effort and my full investment of time and energy.
When it comes to delivering projects on time, or shipping, I want the finished project, “show me the money!”
I want a sustainable and impactful change, no barbershop talk, no excuses as to why it can’t be done.
I want your money – not your two cents.
