It’s not my Job

Going extra mileI was about to enter my office when I saw a street light switched on. I approached the guard who was sitting right next to the pole and asked “Isn’t that light supposed to be turned off. It’s 8am in the morning.” I got the classic reply “It’s not my job!!!” Wooohhh really are you kidding me. We are too busy to save some electricity, too busy to add some value and too busy to play your part for this beautiful world.

This incident happened last week and from that day onwards I made a routine to switch off light before entering office. But I am glad that since last 2 days street lights are now off before I arrive at my office. I suppose that statement really hit hard on that guard. Poor him (:

I believe that in personal and in professional Life going an extra mile is always a plus point. It’s not about “It’s not my job” it’s about will it benefit my company, society or people around me. There are certain things that I do which are beyond my job scope but I do them because I know my company will benefit from it. For example if it’s raining in Karachi I dive into my pc to run a scroll on our website that deliveries might be affected. Not because it’s my job just to provide ease to our customers.

When Passion dies – What next?

In Life you will be given opportunity to work on your carrier, to work for a company or to work towards your calling. Some are born genius; some explore their genius while rest die with their song buried in their hearts.

Simon Sinek worked his heart out in a 9-5 job. But then one day he was working late. No one was at office. Light went out so he got some time to think. He looked around and saw no one. He was working like hell with his sweat and blood. He realized the fact those long hours he was investing was helping his company but he was not growing anymore.

Simon in his TED talk explained that there are two ways in which you can do things – First we do things in which you are good at and second we do things which we really Love to do. They come straight from our heart.

But sometimes in Life you realize that you are doing something which you loved to do but now your Passion died. You no longer feel the way you used to. You are doing things because you are asked to do or you are paid to do. Now what??

Follow your Heart
