no destructive lies, no ridiculous fears, no debilitating anger…

recently, i had this conversation with someone, which is more like a complain session of each other’s work experiences, which ranges from bad encounters with superiors, clients and colleagues. amazingly, i began to understand how people release their frustration by simply venting out on other people by scoldings, sarcasms and sometimes violence, haha. all in the name of stress. i guess that’s really common, perhaps they think that by doing that, they can get things done, their way. however, usually the reverse happens. frustration sets in, anxiety comes, efficiency increases (maybe at the expense of quality), fear grows and respect lost.

but then again, we discussed some pretty good experiences about amiable colleagues, clients and bosses, and usually, work relationships with these people grows well, and things get done pretty well. these few points alone led us to one conclusion, which is that people usually only functions at near their best level when their work is appreciated and when respect is given. who would like to work for one who screams at you, or someone who tells you that you suck?

“Respect your fellow human being, treat them fairly, disagree with them honestly, enjoy their friendship, explore your thoughts about one another candidly, work together for a common goal and help one another achieve it. No destructive lies. No ridiculous fears. No debilitating anger.” Bill Bradley

i guess this quote suits the conclusion of our short discussion best.

    OMG~~this is just SO TRUE!
    I guess everyone of us have complaints about work. No longer like how life is when we are still in school. Life is different. People we meet are different too~ Sometimes, it is just about trying our best to do and give our best.
