“There is a very thin line between confidence and arrogance.” -Adam Peaty

 

THE BACK STORY

My neighbor Jonas asked me to help him source workers for his new food-cart business. So, I asked for a simple list of Duties and Responsibilities.

JONAS:  That’s not necessary. I just need ‘helpers’. All they need to do is follow what I say as the need arises.
