Scientists at the Rocket launching station in Thumba, were in the habit of working for nearly 12 to 18 hours a day. There were about Seventy such scientists working on a project. All the scientists were really frustrated due to the pressure of work and the demands of their boss but everyone was loyal to him and did not think of quitting the job. One day, one scientist came to his boss and told him - Sir, I have promised to my children that I will take them to the exhibition going on in our township. So I want to leave the office at 5 30 pm. His boss replied - O K, , You are permitted to leave the office early today. The Scientist started working. He continued his work after lunch.

So he took the lead in taking them to exhibition The boss does not have to do it every time. But once it is done, loyalty is established. That is why all the scientists at Thumba continued to work under their boss even though the stress was tremendous. By the way , can you hazard a guess as to who the boss was???????? . .

The animal cried Piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be covered anyway, it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey. He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realised what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down. A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up. As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off! Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a stepping stone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up! Remember the five simple rules to be happy: 1. Free your heart from hatred. 2. Free your mind from worries. 3. Live simply. 4. Give more. 5. Expect less. Someone sent this to me to think about... so I am forwarding it to you to do the same. SHAKE IT OFF!

If possible, practice it. Please spare little time LOVE YOUR JOB, BUT NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR COMPANY B'COZ U NEVER KNOW WHEN COMPANY STOPS LOVING YOU Narayana Murthy (Chairman of Infosys) Extract of Mr. Narayana Murthy's Speech during Mentor Session: I know people who work 12 hours a day, six days a week, or more. Some people do so because of a work emergency where the long hours are only temporary. Other people I know have put these hours for years. I don't know if they are working all these hours, but I do know they are in the office this long. Others put in long office hours because they are addicted to the workplace. Whatever the reason for putting in overtime, working long hours over the long term is harmful to the person and to the organization. There are things managers can do to change this for everyone's benefit. Being in the office long hours, over long periods of time, potential errors. My colleagues who are in the office long make mistakes caused by fatigue. Correcting these mistakes time as well as the time and energy of others. I have seen Tuesday through Friday to correct mistakes made after 5 PM makes way for hours frequently requires their people work on Monday. Another problem is that people who are in the office long hours are not pleasant company. They often complain about other people (who aren't working as hard); they are irritable, or cranky, or even angry. Other people avoid them. Such behavior poses problems, where work goes much better when people work together instead of avoiding one another. As Managers, there are things we can do to help people leave the office. First and foremost is to set the example and go home ourselves. I work with a manager who chides people for working long hours. His words quickly lose their meaning when he sends these chiding groups e-mails with a time-stamp of 2 AM, Sunday. Second is to encourage people to put some balance in their lives. For instance, here is a guideline I find 1) Wake up, eat a good breakfast, and go 2) Work hard and smart for eight or nine 3) Go home. 4) Read the comics, watch a funny movie, kids, etc. 5) Eat well and sleep well. helpful: to work. hours. dig in the dirt, play with your This is called recreating. Doing steps 1, 3, 4, and 5 enable step 2. Working regular hours and recreating daily are simple concepts. They are hard for some of us because that requires personal change. They are possible since we all have the power to choose to do them. In considering the issue of overtime, I am reminded of my oldest son. When he was a toddler if people were visiting the apartment, he would not fall asleep no matter how long the visit, and no matter what time of day it was. He would fight off sleep until the visitors left. It was as if he was afraid that he would miss something. Once our visitors' left, he would go to sleep. By this time, however, he was over tired and would scream through half the night with nightmares. He, my wife, and I, all paid the price for his fear of missing out. Perhaps some people put in such long hours because they don't want to miss anything when they leave the office. The trouble with this is that events will never stop happening. That is life!! Things happen 24 hours a day. Allowing for little rest is not ultimately practical. So, take a nap. Things will happen while you're asleep, but you will have the energy to catch up when you wake. Hence "LOVE YOUR JOB BUT NEVER FALL IN LOVE WITH YOUR COMPANY" 15 Ego gives a swollen head while pride gives a swollen heart. --------- Anonymous 16 Our greatest glory is not in never failing, but in rising up every time we fail. ------ Ralph Waldo Emerson 17 I wept because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet. -- Persian saying, Ancient 18 Anything the mind can conceive and the heart can believe, you can achieve. --------- Anonymous 19 Today’s problems are the result of yesterday’s short sighted solutions. --------- Anonymous 20 People don't care how much you know, until they know how much you care. --------- Anonymous 21 Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. --------- Anonymous All achievements and all earthly riches have their beginnings in an idea or a dream. ----- Napoleon Hill Great minds have purposes; others have wishes. -------- Washington Irving The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams. ----- Eleanor Roosevelt Great minds have purposes; others have wishes. -------- Washington Irving Learning is not attained by chance.
