Hire People Who Make Things Happen

There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who ask, “What happened?” – Casey Stengel

You have the opportunity, every single day, to decide what type of person you are, and what type of person you want to be. In everything you do. You can choose to make things happen, to sit comfortably and watch things happen, or to be lazy and simply ask “what happened”.

Your choice impacts not only who you are and how you perform, but the people around you.

The most successful teams share a common trait: they are composed of people who make things happen. You see these teams all around you – Apple, Tesla, Facebook, Google, and many more.

Think about your own teams and companies – and other companies you know. You’ll often see people who are too complacent, too comfortable, and too lazy to make things happen. They complain about their jobs, their pay, and their lives.

If your companies are full of employees who watch things happen, or even worse, who ask “what happened”, you’ve lost. If you want to succeed, get rid of such people. Immediately.

There are three kinds of people: those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who ask, “What happened?”

Which are YOU?
