QUOTE/UNQUOTE

"Do the tedious tasks. It may seem painful, but you will learn from it. If you are new into the corporate world it may be expected from you, so embrace it. If you have been in the corporate world for a while, it will remind you how things really work and how difficult it may be for the 'simple' report you requested. While you may not have the time to do the actual job, at least understand what someone has to go through to get it for you."
– Contributor Nicole Schoch in her July feature, "14 things you should care about"
