Yet another one of those days at work where working means spending those fixed 9 hrs in front of your screen irrespective of work/no work in hand.

Pretending to the whole world how involved you are with your work and commitments towards your unknown yet beloved clients, sitting somewhere in their neat AC cabin and day and night thinking of cutting down cost to make his business looks more profitable.

Just when you think you are the only one pretending here and everybody else is working you tend to look up and see around to derive some inspiration from your colleagues but alas!

What you see is unfortunately is no surprise to you (though you pray to get that surprise someday)

Your colleagues are busy sending people good will messages/forwards, chatting with their pseudo long lost friends sitting in adjacent cabins and yet thinking of promotions, pay hikes and ill inhuman management practices prevalent in their organization.

I wonder Y cant they just give us the freedom to come/leave at our own will.

They do assert they believe in us, in our credibility for our work/commitment, in our ability to bring business for them then Y cant they just show it in their well documented policies as well and act accordingly.

Y cant they just believe in what they put forward.

Y is everything so synthetic and over the top, what kind of culture/decorum are they trying to inculcate when both sides are just making up the so called “Relationship”.

I believe there’s nothing wrong but we/even companies are just trying not to acknowledge the power of

“Self Discipline”

Let us take ownership of ourselves

Will put up one of my favorite quote here again by JIM MORRISON to summaries my point

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.”
