#BGIM: Bless God It’s Monday- WHY DO A WORK for Another to REDO LATER!!!


#BGIM Bless God It’s Monday

After another relaxing weekend where most of us spent time with our maker in worship, we look forward to seeing Him bless us through the WORK of our HANDS in this coming week and beyond.

#BGIM- WHY Do A Work for Another to REDO LATER?!!!

Yes!!! You heard it right. Why Do A Work For Another To REDO LATER? Why? Why?? Why???

In the world of work, if a thing must be done, it must DONE WELL. It must be done ONCE and FOR ALL without the need to waste precious man hours to correct or redo it.

Why would you have to do a work shabbily or hurriedly only to realise it was not done well, thus, your Supervisor would require you do it again or a colleague corrects your work with a better output expected? Don’t think you are being ‘smart’ or cunning by being lazy or by cutting corners because if you continue that way, YOU CAN’T BE RECOMMENDED in the Day of Promotion or Reward.

Talk of Redoing a work reminds me of a work some ECG (Electricity Company of Ghana) workers did recently around my school. They had to erect (fix) electric poles to allow for the extension of Electricity Services to that area and environs. I can remember so vividly that when they were ‘fixing’ the poles concerned members of the community including my Proprietress raised issues with how the poles were not in line and the need to shift some of the electric poles backwards. Since, these community members were not the supervisors of the ECG workers, they gave them a deaf ear with the attitude that the digging, carrying and ‘fixing’ of poles was a very difficult work requiring a lot of manual labour.

Lo and Behold, when the other crew came to connect the electric WIRES or CABLES a few weeks later, hmmm, they realised that the previous crew had done a shabby work. Hence, before they could start their work, they had to go round and correct (redo) all the wrongly placed poles before connecting the electric cables.

When I saw this, I said to myself, this is waste of time, manhours, salary, food and even man’s energy to stand in the hot sun to erect the poles requiring REDOING.

Don’t you have such scenarios in and around your place of work, home or community? I believe you have numerous of such examples including those of children.

It is true that the work is very difficult. It is true that the work is tiring. It is the true that none of your colleagues is around to help you finish it. It is true you might not be paid or the renumeration for that work is small. But if it must be DONE, it must be DONE WELL. Otherwise, don’t do it at all and waste your time and energy along with the precious time and energy of the one who would be LATER CALLED to REDO Your Work.

It’s Monday. Time to work again. Be inspired by this piece.

A German once visited a temple under construction where he saw a sculptor making an idol of God. Suddenly he noticed a similar idol lying nearby. Surprised, he asked the sculptor, “Do you
need two statues of the same idol?” “No,” said the sculptor without looking up, “We need only one, but the first one got damaged at the last stage…”

The gentleman examined the idol and found no apparent damage. “Where is the damage?” he asked. “There is a scratch on the nose of the idol.” said the sculptor, still
busy with his work. “Where are you going to install the idol?”

The sculptor replied that it would be installed on a pillar twenty feet high. “If the idol is that far who is going to know that there is a scratch on the nose?” the gentleman asked.

The sculptor stopped work, looked up at the gentleman,
smiled and said, “I WILL KNOW IT

The DESIRE to EXCEL is EXCLUSIVE of the fact whether SOMEONE else APPRECIATES it or not. “Excellence” is a drive from inside, not outside. Excellence is not for someone else to notice but for your own satisfaction and efficiency.

Don’t Climb a Mountain with an Intention that the World Should See You. Climb the Mountain with the Intention to See the World. This must be your attitude on the job.

Good day 4 God dey

Be informed that #BGIM returns next week.
