{May 20, 2013}   Character is doing the right thing when nobody’s looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that’s right is to get by and the only thing that’s wrong is to get caught. (J. C. Watts )

No matter how much you love your work, there comes a point, at times that you experience a “burn-out”. You suddenly feel like you’ve had enough, you express/ vent out the emotions you’ve been keeping into yourself and no matter what, you keep on repeating to yourself “this too shall pass” “i love my job” and wish that you’ll cool down and be okay in a jiffy.

This too shall pass, I love what I do……Not that I am convincing myself that I am feeling this way…. It is just at time,people around you tends to be complacent, numb at times, while you give your best, because you love to do it. It feels like that the industrious persona in you is a clear signage on your forehead that says: ” don’t move, I’ll do it for you, do not mind if you tend to become lazy “–> Ah, Futile you must mean. Futile part of the system in which we all want to work out well. It is an opportunity for these kind of people to over relax, confident that though they become idle, unproductive, that’s alright because they deserve it base from their previous works done (attitude! some kinda….) And someone will do it after all. The routinely work, may be really a part of everyday, but it doesn’t mean it should be taken for granted.
Every single task we are given, be it work somewhere else, should be done with utmost accomplishment, as if you stamp your name , signature and your face on each endeavor you claim is done. Imagine if all tasks given for each one of us is concluded with such stamp? And you have finished it just for the sake of. Would you feel proud to see that it isn’t what is expected of you? And that poor rating goes together to your name and openly announced. Imagine the humiliation. But then again, since the basis of doing it right is only done “right” only when you are being monitored, looked at, aware that eyes are upon you. But when there is none and you are left on your own comfort of accomplishing it, you just tend to do it “for the sake of getting it done”. How it makes my patience run dry, fortunate if able to tolerate, but like now it came to a zero degree that after being furious, the desire to hibernate, be gone, kapoof! Invisible, away way way far only to come back when my “patience battery level” is full again, charged.

Absurd really to live each day, when you know deep inside that your effort, which again, you may claim as your best(?) is just below average or rather poorly for that matter.

I may burst at times with such working attitude or wayward outlook in life, but I will always come back to my senses again and will live up to the mantra I have set myself no matter how disappointing I am to witness such:

” It’s doing the right thing when no one is looking “.


Great attitude. We all have off days, but if we try our hardest and keep pushing yourselves we can achieve anything. Keep up the positive outlook 🙂

Thanks for such wisdom. Truly appreciated.
