Reflecting over the last 300 weeks of my career journey… Right from the land of impossibilities, I traveled through the valleys, my car almost ran on water; I climbed mount Everest, distressed and falling-over, but I ‘never say never’… until I arrived at the new Horizon. I tell you.. It was such an adventurous ride; a few will have this privilege in a life time career.
Much more than remembering the challenges, achievements, celebrations, failures, disappointments and suspense along the journey; I feel the necessity to filter my experience and highlight important learning points…. probably to practically re-affirm some basic laws (of life) and create reference for future endeavors.
I came up with the following “Be -Attitude” or beatitudes of workplace :
Be strategic, let your work speak for you; it pays than speaking for yourself.
Be sensitive to your environment, much is being said without words.
Be mindful of your encounter with people, everyone you encounter takes a portion of you everywhere they go.
Be free to draw inspiration from the achievement of colleagues, but be careful not to Compete, ‘Career Competition’ is a drainer.
Be a friend; find and nourish friendship at work, it makes the job a lot easier.
Be focused; you’ll likely meet some ‘English Speaking’ ( Seemingly Smart ) colleagues; they’ll probably get commendations for your job.. but relax , in-the-long-run the ‘English’ (Smartness) usually put them in trouble.
Be simple, when situation seems overwhelming.. simply take it “a day at a time”; As much as you can.. ALWAYS maintain the right attitude.
Which of these beatitudes can you relate with? You may want to add a few more.. please feel free to make comments.
Thank you for reading
