Management is like a bar of soap If you hold it at one end, it slips out the other. If you adjust and hold it at the other end, it slips out of the first. If you squeeze it too hard, you just destroy it. If you scrub too vigorously, you use it up too quickly and it becomes expensive. Yet if you hold it just right, it does a perfectly adequate job and nobody really talks about it. Management is about skill before effort. It is about doing the job and ignoring the glory. And you may have to drop the soap a few times before you learn to get it right.
