Excellence in execution

    A great example of excellence in execution & commitment to quality:

A gentleman was once visiting a temple under construction. In the temple premises, he saw a sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he saw, just a few meters away, another identical idol was lying. Surprised he asked the sculptor, do you need two statutes of the same idol. No said the sculptor. We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage. The gentleman examined the sculptor. No apparent damage was visible. Where the damage is asked the gentleman. There is a scratch on the nose of the idol. Where are you going to keep the idol? The sculptor replied that it will be installed on a pillar 20 feet high.

When the idol will be 20 feet away from the eyes of the beholder, who is going to know that there is scratch on the nose? The gentleman asked. The sculptor looked at the gentleman, smiled and said ” The God knows it and I know it “.

The desire to excel should be exclusive of the fact whether someone appreciates it or not.

Excellence is a drive from “Inside “not “Outside”.

Attitude

About 5 months back my husband hit the brick wall – he quit his job which he hated the most and according to him was literally making him sick. I Though he would feel sorry for himself and loose his self confidence, but to my surprise he was not only ok about the situation but also in total control of it. Everyone in the family including me were worried and unhappy about he quitting a financially stable job. Scared to how he may react if asked about the situation and mainly to not hurt his feelings, they would all talk to me about his job status and about our challenging situation. Being with him all the time it was difficult for me to control my thoughts and they often came out on him in the form of angry irritated words. I guess I was a negative influence on him.

He never once showed any kind of irritation or frustration and was always optimistic of landing up in a better job. He did what he always enjoyed doing Reading books, Music, socializing, vacation with friends, networking, certifications, etc. Since the job market was still recovering from the recession there were hardly any job interview calls. This irritated me more than anything else. Never a sight of worry on his face regarding job or his career? It was getting on my nerve and I often used to worry is he for real?

Today his ex-company’s boss called him and offered him a job.

What I understand today is his definition of life is just one – Live for today and look for good in all circumstances.

By embracing positive attitude he eliminated the “Poor me syndrome” and hence was always happy.

While I worried about tomorrow he lived merrily in today.

Seven Wonders Of The World – Whats on your list?

A group of students was asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.” Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:
 
 1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal
3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter’s Basilica
7. China’s Great Wall
 
While gathering the votes, the teacher noticed that one quiet student hadn’t turned in her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a little. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were so many.”
 
 The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.” The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ are:
1. I see
2. I hear
3. I touch
4. I taste
5. I feel
6. I laugh
7. I love.
The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.
The Truly Wondrous things are often overlooked as simple and ordinary!
