A few good men... In People/Team Management – being one among them.

 The world today is getting divided forever in the name of religion, power and geographical boundaries etc. The sad part of it is these changes are irreversible and result in major catastrophes. These changes are happening at such a rapid phase that it is challenging the very future of the world itself. People for whom hate is a way of life are getting innovative at means of spreading it. It is really unfortunate that it is working well for them. People for their vested interests are actively promoting hatred and fueling wars.

Today, I want to share with you a real-life incident, a small experience, which I came across. The other day there was an electrical equipment delivery person with his helper trying to unload a refrigerator, which he had to deliver from his pickup truck. The refrigerator was a huge one and hence it was difficult to unload it just by themselves. This person asked a passerby in the local language (Hindi) “Bhai thoda madath karoge” the passerby replied “bilkul is duniya me aaye hi hum madath karneko”

{For the benefit of my readers from various parts of the world, I will translate it to English}

The delivery guy asked the passerby “Brother can you help us with unloading”

The passerby replied “Of course, the purpose of me coming into this world is to help others”

Now these two people are absolute strangers and met for the first time in their life. We too normally help people in our day-to-day life. However, I was thoroughly impressed by the mindset and his eagerness to help others. His proactive approach to helping people was commendable and reflected his way of thinking.

The words from the passerby really left a strong impression in my mind and influenced me a lot. I was intrigued by the thought that if everyone followed this approach towards, the world today would be such a great place than it is now.

It was only natural that I looked upon him as my role model and tried to mirror his mindset ever since then. I started actively looking for opportunities to help people since then. Now, for me it no longer matters how it changes the world, it certainly has changed mine for good.

The world is in dire need of Good Samaritans like these. I am sure most of you, if not all, are already helping others whenever and wherever possible. Doing it with this mindset, eagerness and proactively looking for opportunities will only better the world for you and the people who you touch.

Like they say,

Write something that is worth reading about or do something that is worth writing about”
