“It is not the whistle that moves the train.”
– D.V. Rangarajan
Making things happen at work . . . real and significant things . . . takes more than raising one’s voice, spouting one’s value, claiming questionable credit, or being in some vaunted position. Rather, “moving the train” requires sober analysis, painstaking planning and hours and hours of determined and sometimes grueling effort. When assembling a team to work with you, or a team to join, look with favor upon those who silently toil above those who are best known to simply toot their own horn.
