Invisible Works

Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of Canada recently resigned and moved to the Bank of England as their governor.  The most common response to this news, was, “Who’s he?”  That speaks well for him.

If you are a referee, umpire, manager, parent, spouse, politician, you can tell when you are doing your best work.  No one notices you.

If the folks notice, you are adding something to the mix that is not required.

Could be:

  • Ego
  • Personal point of view
  • Ignorance
  • Demand for attention
  • Mistrust of others

You can only be invisible while you are doing a good job.
