I've received praise, bonuses, and gifts from managers who wanted to reward me for a job well done. But Tabasco the bull is one of the best rewards I ever received. It probably cost my manager only $6. She gave it to me for taking ownership, diving into the deep end, pulling out the win - or in her words "for taking the bull by the horns." I've had Tabasco on a shelf in my closet for a number of years. I recently pulled it out and set it on my desk as a reminder that I am responsible for my destiny. It is my reminder to "take the bull by the horns."
