MANAGEMENT is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; LEADERSHIP determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall - Stephen Covey

Why you and your boss are different?

Well, if you wanted to know the answer to the above question...read below...

When you take a long time, you're slow. When your boss takes a long time, he's thorough.

When you don't do it, you're lazy. When your boss doesn't do it, he's too busy.

When you make a mistake, you're an idiot. When your boss makes a mistake, he's only human.

When doing something without being told, you're overstepping your authority. When your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

When you take a stand, you're being bull-headed. When your boss does it, he's being firm.

When you overlooked a rule of etiquette, you're being rude. When your boss skips a few rules, he's being original.

When you please your boss, you're apple polishing. When your boss pleases his boss, he's being co-operative.

When you're out of the office, you're wandering around. When your boss is out of the office, he's on business.

When you're on a day off sick, you're always sick. When your boss is a day off sick, he must be very ill.

When you apply for leave, you must be going for an interview. When your boss applies for leave, it's because he's overworked.

Good list Sriram

Here are a couple from me

When you are working from home you are 'skiving' (English expression for being lazy) .. When your boss works from home he needs to have some peace to consider options

When you are working late to catch up you are just inefficient .. When your boss is working late he is too busy

I leave the first part of the difference between you and your boss as it is and the second part only with comments as follows:

1. When your boss takes a long time he is THOROUGHLY SLOW.
2. When your boss does not do it, he is CRAZY.
3. When your boss makes a mistake he is an IDEAL IDIOT.
4. When your boss does the same thing, he is OVERLAPPING (AUTHORITY).
5. When your boss does it, he is being FOUL HEADED.
6. When your boss skips a few rules he is being the ORIGIN OF RUDE.
7. When your boss pleases his boss, he is BUTTER POLISHING.
8. When your boss is out of the office he is WONDERING AND SQUANDERING ABOUT.
9. When your boss is on a day off sick, HE IS OFF THE STICK.
10. When your boss applies for leave he must be TAKING AN INTERVIEW.
