A thought while reading a book.........

I have just finished reading a book called fish tales.... Its a book about how to have fun while working.... Its written in the form of a story , where a manager takes up a task of making a dull, boring department of a company where employees are grumpy and are often ridiculed by employees of the other dept. as "toxic energy dump" , and makes it the most energetic and fun place to work in with the help of some friends at a world famous fish market ofcourse ......

Its was while reading this book , that i got a thought ... There are times when people dont get the choice of their work.... people pay less attention to the work they find the most boring.. What if this mentality is changed .. What if they begin to enjoy the same work.. How will it effect their productivity.. One thing is for sure the results are gonna be positive.......... Entire book is based on just one fact "Love the work you do" ..... Its this feeling that makes your work enjoyable......

I'll take an example- for instance a project manager has a job of making a presentation and a report... If he likes the former job more than the report.... He'll concentrate all of his energy on making the presentation, having done very little about the report...... So what happens here .. His entire work would not be upto the mark... But what he finds a way to make that dull work full of fun... What if he realizes its importance, the end results would be mind blowing........

This is what is explained in the book.........
Its about choosing the right attitude ..... If we approach a task with grumpiness , the results will be the same, full of mistakes and errors ....... There are ofcourse external factors like suppose we have a fight with someone .... that has some effect on the work as well we approach it with the same kind of attitude... Its the attitude that is important while working... Why have a petty fight affect other works of our life.....

Every work u take upon in this lifetime is important ... It someway or the other affects us.... So enjoy everything you do ... and most importantly love it ........ Think about it...........
This is a part of what is called the "fish philosophy"..........
