I recently watched an episode of Undercover Boss where the COO of Waste Management, Lawrence O’Donnell III, went undercover to really see what it’s like to work at Waste Management. In it, one of the jobs that Larry does (and gets fired from) is picking up trash at the landfill.
During lunch break he has a conversation with his boss for the day, Walter Settles. Walter has dialysis three times a week. You can watch what Walter said in this video clip:
I let my spirit tell my body what’s gonna happen, what I’m gonna do, what I’m not gonna do.
Because, if I let the body tell me what I’m gonna do, I’m not gonna do very much.
That’s determination to do your job and get done what needs to get done. Thank you Mr. Settles.
