Understanding the four types of bones

There are four types of Bones that tend to exist in every organization.

First there are Wishbones. These individuals spend most of their time wishing others would do the work. Ironically, if they spent as much time working as they do wishing, valuable work would get done.

Then we have Jaw Bones. Needless to say, these people spend a lot of time talking about the work that needs to be done but never get anything done.

The Knucklebones love to knock what everyone else is doing. These people usually quit working as soon as they find a job. The reason? They pour all their efforts into criticizing others.

The productive Bones are the Backbones. They get the work done and aren’t concerned with the credit.

So let’s all be Backbones.
