If I missed being online at Blogville for the past week, it is because I was grounded and I also attended a very important seminar on Performance Management System. As a government employee and maybe just an ordinary employee, I learned a lot from the said seminar. And I want to share with you what have touched me so much. It is about a closing presentation by the trainers after said two-days seminar. Brace yourselves, and hope you would feel the same way I did and still do.
If you think you are unhappy, picture yourself in their place...
If you think your job is tough, how about him?
If you think your salary is low....what if this were you?
If you think you don't have many friends... think of him.
You think study is a burden, how about her?
When you feel like giving up... think of these men.
If you think you struggle in life... do you struggle as much as he does?
If your society is unfair to you... what about her?
What good did it do to be grouchy today?
Did your surliness drive any trouble away?
Did you cover more ground than you usually do,
Because of the grouch you carried with you?
If not, what's the use of a grouch or a frown,
If it won't smooth a path, or a grim trouble down?
If it doesn't assist you, it isn't worthwhile.
Your work may be hard, but just do it...
When you've thank God for every blessing,
what time is there left for murmurs and laments?
If you can't be thankful
for what you receive,
for what you escape.
