Work & service

  1. 1. Work & Service Work Service
  2. 2. One evening a scholar was addressing the participants on the concept of work culture. One of the participants asked the following question: "I am a senior manager of Materials Department and I joined an organization 25 years ago as an Engineer Trainee and over the last 25 years I have gone through every experience in the organization. During the initial part of my career, the job was very challenging and interesting. However, all those exciting days are gone since I do not find my joy any more interesting because there is nothing new in my job. I am now feeling bored because I am doing a routine job.
  3. 3. However, Sir, I am living in the same house for over forty years, I am the son for the same parents for over forty five years, I am the father for the same children for the past ten years and the husband for the same lady for the past twenty years !! In these personal roles I do not feel bored. Please tell me why I am bored of the routine in the office and not in the house?" The response from Scholar was very interesting and convincing. He asked the executive the question: "Please tell me for whom does your Mother cook?“ The executive replied that obviously the mother cooks for others.
  4. 4. Then the Scholar said that the mother "Serves" others and because of this service mindedness, she is not feeling tired or bored. But in an office, we "Work" and not "Serve". Anything we consider, as service will not make us feel bored. That is difference between Serving and Working. He asked the executive to consider his work as service and not merely a work !! This was a very interesting analysis !!
  5. 5. Whenever We  put  a  larger  context  around  our  work  and  see  a  broader meaning for our work, We will take interest in our work  and  it  will  make  a  very  big  difference  in  our  internal  energy. If  Attitude  Matters  !!! We  think We  are  working  for  the  organization We  will  get  frustrated.  If We  feel We  are  doing  a  service and getting some service charges We will feel happy. After all - doing what We like is freedom, but liking what We do  is Happiness …. !!!
