This’s a story about four people: Everybody, Somebody, Anybody and Nobody.

There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it but Nobody realised that Everybody wouldn’t do it.

It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anybody could have done.

This is a story my Dad told me a long time ago and until recently I never understood the frustration that you can experience when your colleagues at work don’t pull their weight and leave everything up to the one person… ie: ME. It’s extremely demotivating!!!
