“When you’re good, you tell everybody; when you’re great, everybody tells you”

"When you’re good (at something), you tell everybody; when you’re great, everybody tells you” is a saying that has been used in sports and in business. “When you’re good at something, you tell people. When you’re really good at something, people will tell you” was cited in print in 2003. “When you’re good, you tell people. When you’re great, others say it for you” was cited in 2010, when the saying was credited to “UnMarketing” business author Scott Stratten.

“When you’re good at something, you tell everyone. When you’re great at something...They’ll tell you” was credited to American football star Walter Payton (1954-1999) in 2013.

lefty9155 -> Great Quote From Gwog (05/06/03 4:01:34 PM)
I’m not going to put anything more into this than what is plainly written. It’s quite simple and to the point. We had a brief discussion about a few things during the Melee and he ended the conversation (of which I won’t elaborate on) with something pretty eloquent:
“When you’re good at something, you tell people. When your’re really good at something, people will tell you.”

There’s an old adage out there that applies to a lot of different walks of life. When you’re good at something, you tell everybody. . .when you’re great at something, everybody tells you. And this old proverb can certainly be applied to the braggadocio world that is the NFL.
