If you don't do it, somebody who cares less will.

Tom Bartel, writing on the top 10 reasons you should become a manager. Here's my favorite:

"The only reason there’s so many awful managers is that good people like you refuse to do the job.”
You might have doubts if you are the right person for the job. You might wonder if you are the one who can settle conflicts, who can guide people, whom people trust to lead them. You might wonder if you deserve the position, and if it is justified to put you in that role.

Management isn't easy. But the adage that the best leaders are the reluctant ones has consistently proven true.
