    “Everyone sweeps the floor” is a nice one. No matter who you are or how much money you make you still have to sweep the floor. Equality.

    honestly for some reason the first line really hit me. I think too much about the things I do wrong and I torture myself trying to criticize all of the mistakes I made when it’s stupid for me to be concerned about stuff in the past. It’s smarter to just say “oh well” and move on rather than grinding your teeth at your past failures.

    OMG when I joined Apple they gave me one of these as well. One year at our national sales conference I had my badge on and the stupid lanyard broke and I lost the card, and JB had already left the company. Been looking for this for AGES but no one ever knows what I’m talking abut. Thank you for this!!

    “Sharing information is a good thing”

    Apple seems to have changed quite a bit. From what I understand, the company is extremely silo-ed. I have friends who tell me employees aren’t allowed to discuss their work with colleagues outside of their project groups and even access to buildings is highly restricted.

    Everyone sweeps the floor can’t be more on point. I work in the restaurant industry and I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve seen a sous chef have to wash dishes because the porter decided not to show up.

    Non-english speaker here : Not sure I understand “Everyone sweeps the floor” correctly.

    Is it meant to say everyone; no matter their place in the hierarchy, has to get their hands “dirty” ?

    I worked at IKEA for several years and it was great seeing everyone, from the store manager to the HR team to the other managers to the accountants were helping during peak hours and peak days.

    Was a janitor for years as soon as HR hiring people hear that on a interview they begin condescending me.

    So everyone sweeps the floor is a nice sentiment but it’s not the view in society, it’s wishful thinking.

    I hate the phrase “sooner than later”, but the sentiments here are great.

    (Should be “sooner **rather than** later”)
