Visiting 5 different departments, I am just highlighting the conclusion of one particular conversation which took place in different occasions.
We get the deals n the revenue, what do the others do?
We slog day and night, have stressful targets. Do they know how much of work it is to keep potential and existing clients happy. Others just sit and get the perks of the revenue we earn.
The clients don’t pay immediately after the deal is signed off. Some don’t pay even after the work is done. Let’s not even talk about the sloppy work other departments do, adding in the penalties. How can this organisation run without money, we still keep the money flowing.
The marketing team makes huge promises which even God cannot deliver. HR doesn’t give good salary or good team members. Haah! N the automated system is a joke!. We work day n night and in the end the big bucks goes to others. What the hell!
Who runs an organisation, the people n who brings them us, even without a proper budget. And all these department managers do is put the blame on us instead of being good leaders and making effective use of the hired employees.
Information Technology (IT):
Automated system has made everyone’s work so fast and easy. Yet no appreciation. Really with so much of work done through click of the button what are others actually doing n getting so highly paid for?
This is something which I have heard time an again, not the exact words but the gist is the same. How hard one is working compared to others who are having it easy or actually not working at all or how don’t deserve the benefits they get.
And I am like, if as per everyone no one is doing their work, then how has this Organisation been functioning for the past so many years.
So the answer for what really do others do? …. As per my conversations, everyone are doing what the pictures depicts,
“Lazying around and getting a non deserved easy life for doing nothing”…
As time has gone by, I have realise not just in the corporate world, but life in general, don’t we question, what did he/she do?. Be it a relationship of any kind.
The feeling that we put in more than anyone else in any relationship, be it in the form of friendships to parenting. Also the feeling that our struggles, our sufferings are much more compared to others. What others go through is nothing in comparison. Our sympathies, kindness and understanding have gone restricted to extreme suffering: Hunger, Poverty, Unemployment, Life hampering disease, Divorce n ya maybe even still “Single” at 40.
Can suffering, hardships, efforts of a person be measured?. If it’s done vis-a-vis to ours, it will change as per what we believe, but is it the right measurement?
I remember a conversation wherein the other person said I called you 10 times and you only 7. You are not putting enough efforts in this relationship. I couldn’t argue on those grounds, now could I?.
I sometimes don’t believe in “Putting myself in other persons shoes”, because even there you will find their reasons for suffering not good enough. As some say “if I was there, I would have handled the situation differently”.
I would rather conclude, just have an acceptance that everyone has their own struggles which they face in their effortful way. The measurement, technology of which is still to be discovered or if discovered, not really bug free!. An understanding of which we do not have. Those Struggles, Those Efforts which are small, looks like lazying around in our eyes are mighty big which our eyes fail to see.
