I knocked out a work detail in record time today, or so it seemed, due in a large part to collecting materials ahead of time and leaving them where I could find them. However, a bigger part of the credit goes to someone who never touches this work. He just sets the stage and then leaves it for us to complete.
In this case, he did an outstanding job, which is his norm, and he did it a long while back. It only came to fruition today. Long range thinking counts, folks. It counts for a lot, and he's getting a card for being smart and persistent.
