The "Q" to become an A-Player
Updated: Jul 22, 2020
Quality over Quantity... Easy to say, difficult to implement. Well by now you should know that I only cover things that I have tried myself and have seen results. So here's another piece for you all to try out and see if it makes any difference to you. I know some of us have tried giving more weightage to quality and for time being it worked for them but then they came across some quote that said "Money doesn't buy happiness but crying in a Limousine is better than crying alone in your pillow! " And there! Our obsession for quantity reached sky high and we didn't even realise when we became so ignorant about ourselves. Any great leader you follow would agree with me on this. If you don't pause to refuel yourself, you'll soon end up empty and stranded in the middle of nowhere. Your performance in the real world will reflect what you value in your life. I have a profound memory of a fable that I read as a kid about 3 pigs and a wolf. It basically says how 3 pigs built houses each of straws, sticks and bricks. The wolf blows away the first two houses built with straws and sticks but fails to wreck the third house made with bricks. Now the moral of the story is very different from what I perceived but I truly believe that spending more time in building something qualitative be it a relationship or career is not only an important task but also the only thread connecting a human to their ownselves. It not just brings joy but also a strong sense of connection with everything that surrounds us. Try undergoing a self-analysis this week to see how many times in life have you chosen quantity over quality and for what? Was it worth it? If your answer is yes, then you are on the right path but if it's not a yes then you might want to shuffle a few of your choices around.
