“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt
Employees who lean heavily on their supervisors to make day-to-day decisions or solve problems are much less useful and productive – and take a lot of their supervisors’ valuable time. The best employees are self-driven, and resourceful, keeping themselves motivated, focused, and organised, and meeting challenges without needing too much guidance or permission.

“Anything worth achieving will always have obstacles in the way.” Chuck Norris
