re133: Accountability: The Chicken is Involved, but the Pig is Committed

How involved are your collaborators or partners or friends or colleagues?

A Pig and a Chicken are walking down the road.
The Chicken says: “Hey Pig, I was thinking we should open a restaurant!”
Pig replies: “Hm, maybe, what would we call it?”
The Chicken responds: “How about ‘ham-n-eggs’?”
The Pig thinks for a moment and says: “No thanks. I’d be committed, but you’d only be involved.”


Sure, the pig in this fable is extremely committed in the short term. 😉 The chicken, although only “involved” will at least be around for the long term.

So, who’s on your team?
