My nephew told me that his parents think he’s lazy. “You are” I told him. “But I am not, I clear away the dishes and do all kinds of stuff, it’s just that nobody notices!” he replied. I told him, “You do nothing. If no one sees you do it and nobody notices it, then you do nothing, it’s a question of perception”.
I guess there must be people somewhere doing very important jobs which nobody notices. But think about it, if really no one notices, not even ones’ direct line boss, then one must ask the question ‘do they do anything at all?’
