Your edÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s note of last week rang true to me as I have to deal with people who love to present mediocre work almost on a daily basis. I meet them in my work place and in other companies that I have to deal with when I make a client presentation. I also meet them in the service industry.
Take, for example, shop or restaurant employees who deal with customers while sulking or get impatient when someone demands a time-consuming service? Some people actually look as though they have a grudge against their job and that they would rather get it done and over with. They do not take pride in what they do and as a result, they are not dynamic.
They do not attempt to develop themselves and would rather Ã¢â‚¬ËœtrudgeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ through the days as you put it, dishing out one poor performance after the other until they get their salary. I would like to advise my fellow Malawians against this negative attitude if they would like to succeed.
Being lazy will not lead us anywhere; in fact, it is for this same reason that foreigners come in and make money right in front of our eyes! Let us wake up and realise that hard work and a positive attitude to it benefits no one but ourselves.
