“Bèf plizyè mèt mouri grangou.”
Translation: “A cow with many masters dies of hunger.”
This proverb is a reminder that even in the simplest situations, someone has to be given the responsibility to do the task or the task will never get done. What tasks in your life or job are currently being neglected because no one is taking responsibility? Maybe it’s time to accept the job as your own or delegate it to the one most fitted to the job.
