Just do your best!!!!!!

Well, I heard this from my grandma almost always as a kid....

Next, from my parents and sister always....

From my thoughtful friends who say this when they see me all hypertensive at work....

From my managers who say this when they recruit me....

All quotation books have this....
All fiction books prove this....
All non-fiction books speak this....

A few years ago, I remember stopping by a road side board that said:

Even if your job is to sweep roads, do it in the best possible manner that no one else can excel you....- Sir Visweswarayya.

Close to the sign-board, there was a young man sweeping the dried leaves off the road. Noticed that he was doing a flawless job of sweeping... He probably does not even know that his kind of work ( literal sense here ) was being appreciated in the nearest sign-post. I just walked off amazed at the sincerity and sincerely and quietly wished him well and that he lands up in a nice job in life....Didn't have the mind back then to appreciate him out loud, which i should have, I realise now.

"Just do your best!!!" got registered in my mind I would say and is one point that I find myself drawn to.

And from that day on, I really try hard to do a good job of sweeping whenever I had chanced to sweep the floor in my house. :) :) It is quite a tough job on its own and needs its own experience :)

The essence is that every job,whether it requires literacy or no, experience or no, is considered elite or no, is highly paid or no, definitely requires the "Just do your best!!!" attitude... :)
