Lessons I learn
August 18, 2012 § Leave a comment
I like to learn new things every now and then.
It helps me get out of the constant boredom I find myself in. Keeps me occupied. Helps me understand that simple things we take as granted needs a little bit more than common sense, like making a nice cup of filter coffee. As a South Indian I love my coffee and these Nescafe types is not my cup of tea. I learned that making a decoction is an art in itself. When my mom makes them, it seems so easy and tasted just the way I wanted. And when I did, it tasted like tar extract. I drank it anyways, because it is my cup of tar extract.
Besides that, there are things that we learn everyday. The little things from random people, things we observe from waiting to pay at the super-market, and things we learn at the work.
My boss makes sure that I get enough dosage of his ways and means of doing things. Some I like, and some I pretend to like. And there is one, he repeats over and over and over again. Trust and Respect, he says, is very hard to earn and very easy to lose. True and true. He continues that, Trust is earned by committing ourselves to all the little jobs, giving our best to it. And that commitment in time becomes Respect. With that comes bigger jobs and bigger responsibility.
I am going to take this advice.
