Have you noticed the extent to which we human beings go to avoid doing what needs to be done? 🙂
‘How to quit smoking’, ‘How to overcome laziness’, ‘How to control my anger’, ‘How to overcome my Mobile phone / television addiction’ to even ‘How do I bring an end to my Nail Biting habit’ – some of the questions which I regularly end up answering as a part of my work. I thought to bury it all in a blog post by straight answering ‘How to get rid of any of your bad habits’.
Rumi once said, “The crack is where the light enters you.”
And you will never know this for sure till you get your heart broken. I think, among the people reading this right now, anyone who had their heart broken at least once in their life will agree with this. Because a heartbreak teaches you more about love than a relationship ever can. All it needs is some superb motivational thoughts and that’s what I am going to try and give you in this blog post.
How many of you have studied motivational theories and thought they are useless?
Motivation theories are the one of the first things you will study in management programs; the very first semester. A very fat and not very appealing book would be prescribed to you for the subject ‘Organization Behavior’. That’s a lot of research but very few will make you sit & think – Now! How do I apply them? That too, when for most of the students, an HR subject is like a filler, a soft subject for which you write anything and everything, stories and anecdotes in the exam and just pass to fulfil the course requirement. And students will conveniently forget these theories, till the time they reach their workplaces after their placements and find that in the field, in the real world – they are quite important!
You wouldn’t believe what not having TV at home for last 6 years did to us. Not much, Just these 4 things:-
You just need few awesome leaders to take your organization to the next level. And you also just need very few people (at the leadership level) to bring the same organization fiercely down. If you are married to your job then bosses are like mother-in-laws. You just can’t deny or ignore them inspite of anything.
Bosses are a very important part of work environment and the reason why employees often choose to stay back or move jobs. People usually don’t change their jobs. They change their bosses.
