I had someone try to tell me thank you for my work on a project recently. I had earned the compliment, but felt awkward accepting it. I didn’t do all the work. I was just part of a good a good team.
I needed a good response and despite how witty I might appear on this blog I’m not always quick witted. This is one of those exceptions. I actually thought of something good to say.
I told him that the amount of work I did compared to the amount of work the team did was really small and that I was grateful to be counted as a member of that team.
