I'm sure most of the H.R's in the organizations especially I.T keep sending snippets which are in wide varities. Various H.R related anecdotes are sent too. I generally love reading them as I feel they are such a breather from those mind boggling tasks we do at work!!
In my company too, my H.R keeps sending those highly recommended breathers at not - so frequest intervals. One such snippet caught my attention today and I thought I will share it for you guys to give it a thought too else it will be grey cells malfunctioning.
Has anybody ever given a thought to this statement , "IT IS NOT THE DISTURBANCE THAT DISTURBS ME, BUT IT MY INABILITY TO HANDLE THE DISTURBANCE CAUSED THAT DISTURBS ME'!!!
Ain't it a really great statement. Who ever came up with this thought is indeed great.
Now this thought had a solution too, to overcome the problem. ( Digressing, I would like to add this quote, " Every Problem is a Solution in disguise"!!).
How to overcome?
I understood, I should not react, I should respond. Reactions are insticntive, whereas responses are intellectual. Between the STIMULI ( what happens to me ) and the RESPONSE ( what happens through me), if ther is no gap, it creates reaction. But, between the stimuli and the response, if I use the gap to think and contemplate, then I can respond thoughtfully.
AN INTELLIGENT PERSON RESPONDS; A FOOL REACTS!!!
Now after this deep thinking reading I had at office, my tiny cells started functioning right away and left no stone unturned in making me realise that I very outstandingly belong to the latter half of the last statement undoubtedly.
P.S: I definitely will work on my responses more!!!
From now on, NO - MORE REACTIONS, KNOW - MORE RESPONSES!!!!
