Respect ie earned,  not given.
If you want tye respect of your peers and subordinates you first need to show respect to them.

as well: you don't need to be friends to respect someone, but never be friends with someone you don't respect.

A mentor, colleague and friend said:

"They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." 

So true.

Another from my grandfather:

"Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without."
 
After living through the Great Depression, I think he was rather shocked by and ashamed of our generation's everything is disposable attitude- and it is only getting worse.  Maybe that's why I/we like bringing the used up and worn out back to life . . .

Guy came into our shop today. I told him to ride safe out there. His response was: "I ride my motorcycle like half of the people don't see me, and the other half want me dead."
