One day a new employee went to the HR and said .. I’m not interested in coming to the office anymore.”
The HR responded, “But why?”
Then the boy told “Ah! I can speculate many employees speaking badly about other Employees on back of him/her; one employee who can’t talk well; Few employees looking at their fellow employees in a wrong way, there are hell lot of things that I can prove you wrong in our Office”
There are people who do a lot of politics and talk all negative all the time. Few only do gossips all the time.
The HR replied “OK. But before you go, can you do me a favour: take a full glass of water and walk three times around the office area without spilling a drop on the floor.
Afterwards, leave the Office if you wish for.”
The boy thought: it’s a matter of minutes for him.
And he walked three times around the office floor.
Then he reached HR saying that he is done with it.
And the HR asked “When you were walking around the Office floor did you see any employee speaking badly about another Employee? Any Gossips? Any disturbances?
The Employee replied “no.”
“did you see any Employee looking at other employees in wrong way ?”
“You know why?”
“You were focused on the glass, to make sure you didn’t tip it and spill any water. The same goes with our life. When our focus is on our priorities, we don’t have time to see the mistakes of others.”
Moral of the story.
Concentrate on priorities and not on others Mistakes.
In short – Mind ur work, then ur mind will have no time to mind others …
