#BGIM BLESS GOD IT’S Monday
I believe your weekend was quite fulfilling as you ,most importantly, had the Needed Rest and Refreshment of your physical, mental and spiritual being. It’s Monday and it means it’s Time to work.
IT IS AN HONOUR FOR YOU TO BE GIVEN ANY TASK TO DO
I remember a time at work, when a friend of mine and myself were Pondering over an Issue. Among the higher hierarchy in my Department, the YOUNGEST among them, who was trailing the pack by about ’15 years of age’, was being TASKED to Do Most of the Tasks (whether ASSIGNED/ UNASSIGNED according to his ‘Job Roles and Responsibilities’). My friend was delighted as he said this, ‘Mr ‘Youngest’ might think he’s being USED(as most of us would call it) but Rather he’s Being Trained and Equipped for Greater Tasks and Roles ahead when the Older ones PHASE OFF.” I was taken ABACK by those words of wisdom from him.
Most of us, I believe, our Work Type would be classified as ‘EMPLOYED’ as opposed to ‘SELF-EMPLOYED’, hence we work REPORTING/ ACCOUNTING to someone above in Our Line of Work. Hence, we are USUALLY Given TASKS outside of Our Scope of ‘Job Responsibilities’, but when this happens, we ASSUME we are being ‘USED’ thinking why didn’t your SUPERIOR choose anybody else but YOU? Everybody is going for Break, or the weekend or Closing to Go Home, Everybody is in the Office, so why Send Me?; Nobody is Taking TASKS home to DO, Why is the STANDARD so High for me in any Tasks and so on and so forth.
But One (1) thing we mostly aren’t AWARE OF is that even if we are Deliberately Being USED, it is SERVING or TURNING OUT for Our Good. As you do all of these TASKS DILIGENTLY (and not Lackadaisically as most of us Do), you’re Developing VITAL SKILLS & EXPERIENCES to Help you on the way to the Top 👆 and to REMAIN there. Unknowing to your other Colleagues, you’re the ONE who is RECEIVING and UNDERGOING the BEST Capacity Development in that Enterprise or Corporation. I believe we all know that CAPACITY DEVELOPMENT, (from Last Week’s #BGIM) is Very INSTRUMENTAL in Launching the Enterprise to the Next Level of Growth, same as Launching your Personal CAREER to the Next Level.
So anytime you are Given any Task to do at work, at home, in school, in the community, church, mosque etc DON’T SEE it that You’re being USED but Consider it an HONOUR placed on you to be EQUIPPED and TRAINED.
A Word to the Wise,……..
