No one falls in love

No one stays in love

by chance,
it is by WORK.

And no one falls

out of love by chance,
it is by CHOICE.

Going Home on time

   An email from a friend which I do find true in one way or another...



   Mr.  Narayana Murthy is undoubtedly one of the most famous persons from Karnataka. He  is known not just for building the biggest IT Empire in India but also for his  simplicity. Almost every important dignitary visits InfoSys campus. He delivered  an interesting speech during an employee session with another IT company in  India. He is incidentally, one of the top 50 influential people of Asia  according to an Asiaweek publication and also the new IT Advisor to the Thailand  Prime Minister. 

   Extract of Mr.  Narayana Murthy's Speech during Mentor Session: 

   I  know people who work 12 hours a day, six days a week, or more. Some people do so  because of a work emergency where the long hours are only temporary. Other  people I know have put in these hours for years. I do not know if they are  working all these hours, but I do know they are in the office this long. Others  put in long office hours because they are addicted to the workplace.   

   Whatever the reason for putting in  overtime, working long hours over the long term is harmful to the person and to  the organization. There are things managers can do to change this for everyone's  benefit. Being in the office long hours, over long periods of time, makes way  for potential errors. 

   My  colleagues who are in the office long hours frequently make mistakes caused by  fatigue. Correcting these mistakes requires their time as well as the time and  energy of others. I have seen people work Tuesday through Friday to correct  mistakes made after 5 PM on Monday. 

   Another problem is that people who  are in the office long hours are not pleasant company. They often complain about  other people (who are not working as hard); they are irritable, or cranky, or  even angry. Other people avoid them. Such behaviour poses problems, where work  goes much better when people work together instead of avoiding one another.   

   As  Managers, there are things we can do to help people leave the office. First and  foremost is to set the example and go home ourselves. I work with a manager who  chides people for working long hours. His words quickly lose their meaning when  he sends these chiding group e-mails with a time-stamp of 2 AM, Sunday.   

   Second is to encourage people to put  some balance in their lives. For instance, here is a guideline I find helpful:  
1) Wake up, eat a good breakfast, and go to work.
2) Work hard and smart  for eight or nine hours.
3) Go home.
4) Read the books/comics, watch a  funny movie, dig in the dirt, play with your kids, etc.
5) Eat well and  sleep well. 

   This is called recreating. Doing  steps 1, 3, 4, and 5 enable step 2. Working regular hours and recreating daily  are simple concepts. They are hard for some of us because that requires  'personal change'. They are possible since we all have the power to choose to do  them. 

   In  considering the issue of overtime, I am reminded of my oldest son. When he was a  toddler, if people were visiting the apartment, he would not fall asleep no  matter how long the visit was, and no matter what time of day it was. He would  fight off sleep until the visitors left. It was as if he was afraid that he  would miss some thing. Once our visitors' left, he would go to sleep. By this  time, however, he was over tired and would scream through half the night with  nightmares. He, my wife, and I, all paid the price for his fear of missing out.   

   Perhaps some people put in such long  hours because they do not want to miss anything when they leave the office. The  trouble with this is that events will never stop happening. That is life! Things  happen 24 hours a day. Allowing for little rest is not ultimately practical. So,  take a nap. Things will happen while you are asleep, but you will have the  energy to catch up when you wake. Hence, 



-  Narayana Murthy -
