How many times we felt like not going to work; until, let say midday probably, kind of just sleep in ?
But can you?, how much of us can unilaterally make that call? most of us can’t.
You dare not joke around with the company’s time and priorities, after all they have invested in this time by purchasing it from you, at a discount, I might add. So you will either be reprimanded, fired,docked or sanctioned. Talk about it going on your file, that is also on option, it is often stocked against you,held over your head for future ammunition.
How many times there is a need to get improved systems, tools, equipment, facilities at the office, but your manager says,” No can’t do” ? It is not in our budget, everybody have to put in the extra effort and make the sacrifices, as a department we have to use what we have to get to a certain point, then we can make that type of investment.
Another question; How many times you have had to rework the pickup schedule for the kids, the planned trips with the family, you couldn’t take the weekend off. Despite being desperately tired, you had to stay late to finish up. The deadline has been set and the company moved it up and squarely made it known that it must be met at all cost.
You were able to MAKE IT HAPPEN: despite all odds, despite the sacrifices and discomfort right ? you did it anyway!!
You see, you wouldn’t think of messing with the people’s’ business right? oh no! no! no!
Flip side to all that:
How many times you make a plan to go through your finances and make some changes, research an idea you have and possibly do a test run to see assess its feasibility? But you are too tired, you don’t feel like it. What do you do? do you get up and move anyway? or do you put it off ? maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, SOMEDAY!! which isn’t really a day….
How many times also the items at home looks dated, they work, but there are new releases, that are more modern on the market, a few more features perhaps, but not at all in the budget. Do you apply the same principle as the office does by checking the budget or delay the move until a certain other goal is achieved? Or may you just grab the credit card or jump at the Zero down, hire purchase promotion that pops up in your email for the item.
When your alarm goes off for your exercises to begin, gym, jogging, work out at home. Is it a must for you or is it that the people’s’ business is more of a MUST and yours’ is a MAYBE”
It can be argued that you mind the people’s’ business so you can get to mind your own business, but is that really true because invariably you find that those of us who say no to OUR OWN PERSONAL business. Find ourselves in the long run only capable of ” Minding people’s’ business (the Job), so we can continue to be able to mind other people’s’ business (credit card, mortgage, food and loan company’s’ and the list goes on ) and no where in it our business gets tended to.
IF YOU ARE TO SUCCEED AND LIVE A HAPPY LIFE YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SET YOUR SELF A FULL AND DEFINITE COURSE OF STUDY, PURSUE, IMPROVE AND MASTER THE COURSE, WITHOUT A TUTOR.
As Jim Rohn: if you do things now that other find hard to do, soon you will be able to do the things other can’t do.
MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS, GET OUT THE NOISE!! WORK ON YOU!
THERE IS NO BUSINESS, LIKE YOUR BUSINESS!
