Half Hearted Effort
Three people were laying bricks. A passerby asked them what they were doing.
The first one replied, "Don't you see I am making a living?"
The second one said, "Don't you see I am lying bricks?"
The third one said, "I am building a beautiful monument."
Here were three people doing the same thing who had totally different perspective on what they were doing.
They had three very different attitudes about their work. And would their attitude affect their performance? The answer is clearly yes.
Excellence comes when the performer takes pride in doing his best. Every job is a self-portrait of the person who does it, regardless of what the job is, whether washing cars, sweeping the floor or painting a house.
Sameer had been working on a statue for many days. He was taking a long time to retouch every small detail. A bystander thought these improvements were insignificant and asked Sameer why he bothered with them. Sameer replied, "Trifles make perfection and perfection is no trifle."
Most people forget how fast you did a job, but they remember how well it was done. Pride of performance does not represent ego. It represents pleasure with humility.
The quality of the work and the quality of the worker are inseparable. Half-Hearted effort does not produce half results; it produces no results!
Moral : Half-Hearted effort does not produce half results; it produces no results!
