When you have any idea and start to build it, you will get the other ideas that can help you create the excellent result if you don’t throw those ideas away. Some people misunderstand about the intention so that they leave some good idea to do something that may chance them got the most valuable in their life. If you know about the history of the product name “Post-It” that belongs to 3M, you will understand my purpose of this article.
Many people like to do the batch of the job more than trying to finish the small piece of the job that is the small part of the whole project. When they want to fo the batch, they will not distribute the whole project to the other people that can help them to finish the project in the less time.
If you can do finish everything very easily, you will miss some deeply details understanding on many things. The point is when you try to solve some solid problems, don’t give up, you may get some valuable thing from more understanding that you never thought before. Unfortunately, the most people did often stop their solving process because they think that it is not possible to solve, but some people that did continue solving can get a lot of valuable thing from their efforts.
Why I said like that? Did you ever do something wrong? What is the cause of your wrong action? Which did the child or adult does more wrong? Did they do wrong because they have the correct reason for doing?
My staff ever asked me that what is my standard when they did some report on me. It was happened because I assigned them to revise their reports. They always have the bad feeling when that event occurred. I replied them that my standard was depended on the correction of the report. If I found something wrong, I will not see anymore. They should revise it until it corrects. If I accept that report, it means that you can send any wrong information on any time. When any system accepts the wrong information, it has no future for that working unit. One of my staff ever ask me that was I bore with checking the correction of everything. I told him that if you accept the wrong information, you can not work with me anymore. After that time, I try to teach him that we all have the duty to design, build and maintain the system as good as it should operate, if we don’t care about the correction of all point, how can our customer trust in us. He did not against me with any arguing, but his face shown me that he still not accept on the correction principle. What’s the thing that I teach him more?
This article may argue with someone that think difference, but anyway it just something in my feelings when I heard about the poor duck on the conversation with the people on some place. Why did I feel like that? It has many reasons for examples, Some people told me that the duck can do many things but it can’t do well enough. It can swim but can’t do as good as the fish can. It can fly but can’t do as good as the bird can. It can walk or run but can’t do as good as others animal can. I think it is not fair if we do the comparison like that. If that is the acceptable logic, what about my alike logic? The sparrow is also not well enough because it can not fly as good as the hawk can. The salmon is also not well because it can not swim as good as the dolphin can. The human is not well because they can not run as fast as the tiger can. Especially, I got often heard from the guys who have no good results from their duties. These groups of people often miss to finishing their commitment because of a lot of reasons that they can think when we ask about the result of any job. ฺThe important point is, the same job that assigned to another people can finish well with the same working environment. Do you agree with me? How can we do some paradigm shift with these people.
Many times, I ask the person who came to take an interview for working in the company. One question that I often ask those people is “Why did you find the new job?” I got the variety of the answer that I can classify it into 3 groups. The first group, They almost told me that they would like to get more progress of their life. Then I ask the next question that is “What is the things that will make your life get more progressive?” . Almost of them told me about the job that can make them get more knowledge, carrier path, welfare etc. The second group, They almost tell me that they would like to meet the job that they like and wish to work. They will be happy if they can work on their dream job. Then I also ask the next question that is “How many things that was passed to your life and make you happy?”. When they answered me that they had many things, then I ask again that “Did you happy with those things forever? Then continue with the question “What will you do if you found that you can’t get happy as you wish when you work at here for the period of the time?”
Many people have a lot of ideas, but almost of them never come to the touchable things or the finishing of the product. In the past, I’m also the person in that group. Because I never to did the 1st step. At that time, I always think about the end of the solution and dream about the last state of things that I build it already. But I did across the essential thing, that is the 1st step. This blog is the provable thing that I try to create the first step of many things. It is the preface of any post. When I see the title and the preface of any of my post. It reminds me that I have many things wait me to finish it in the way that I tell in the preface. Finally, when I have a time, I will do more step after the 1st step that I created. When I finish some of my post, I will put the * symbol in front of the title of my post.
