Be what you want others to be..........

hey friends,

we often discuss about the traffic problem we face in Bangalore... everybody has a view as to how to improve this... trust me everyone!well this post is not about improving traffic sense in us... (i plan to write a post on that soon with Ashwin's advice)... but about something else..... traffic was an example i chose to explain this topic "be what you want others to be"..... we often say, "people don't follow rules , that's why we face so many traffic jams".... but how many times we ourselves cross the yellow line make things worse for people on the other side..

I'm sure, now you know what I want to say…...for example,

If you are some one who doesn't like being questioned, check if you are not questioning someone!

If you are some one who does not like being ordered, be sure, u are not ordering some one else...

If you are some one who feels bad if some one is not appreciating your efforts, be the one you want others to be..start appreciating!

Its a simple rule ,don't do what you don't want others to do! or behave like what you want others to behave!Probably its very tough to implement but for sure makes life very much better.......if not anything, at least you'll realise how tough it is not to do what you don't want others to do....

what do you think?......

cheers,

Deepika.

Preach what u practice ? ha ha all project managers ( at least most of them ) will commit suicide if this becomes the law…but seriously life would be great if everyone at least practice something they preach….

very true. treating people the way you would like to be treated will really make this world a better place to work.

Well, You can not always tell for sure what others like or hate. How would you then decide what to do and what not to do? But of-course, if you know already, and you still do it, then it is sheer hypocrisy.

But again, I would also say that everyone should get a second chance, may be a third or even a fourth one.....if the other person is very tolerant. :-)

Hey..
Technically I dont hv to push myself to be something which i m already or wht i want others to be one.
Its like God has made creatures with brains and before u use it u say yeah i want this person/situation to be like this and accept it how it shud be rather how u want to be..Pretty Confusing
