A few questions to the colleague who is coming to office with a severe cold or even flu.

  1. Why are you resistant to efficiently recover but unnecessarily drag your impairment? Why do you refuse to restore your productivity in your own and your company’s interest?
  2. Why are you tangled up in the outdated perception, work performance and quality would be proven by hours spend in the office? They – are – not!
  3. Why do you infect the whole team by incubating them for hours with your sprayed viruses? Why do you intentionally harm your colleagues and jeopardize the productivity of the whole team?

Do you really think that coming to office sneezing and coughing would be an achievement, a sign of commitment, or in any way productive?

No, sorry, to my opinion this is just an explicit mindless, inconsiderate and irresponsible behavior.

So, just stop it … please! Stay at home, take a short break, sleep a lot, recover well, and be back restored and filled with energy.

Don’t forget to gaggle!

post20130301zur deutschen VersionWisdom out of life for (working) life:

Once there was a countrywoman and her three chickens. While the three chickens were laying their eggs into the same shared nest, the countrywoman found only two new eggs in the nest every day.

So, she started to watch her hens. And after a while evidence seemed to be clear:

Every day always the same two chicken left the nest gaggling loudly. The third one, also always the same, quietly stole off.

So, the countrywoman quickly came to an inevitable  decision … and the modest chicken ended up in the stockpot.

But, from the next day on – to her very surprise – there was just one egg in the nest every day!

Now, what are the conclusions of this story:

  1. Some gaggle loudly even without having performed and achieved.
  2. Achieving without gaggling can kill!
