It’s Not the Job you Do, It’s How you Do the Job!

An AMIE aspirant must absorb the title of this article in his brain. It is a secret of success and self-pride. Always do your job with passion as if you are watching your favourite TV show! The same attention is needed here in doing your job.

Let me share an experience of great motivator Shiv Khera in his own words.

Six years ago in Singapore, I gave a taxi driver a business card to take me to a particular address. At the last point, he circled around the building. His meter read 11$, but he took only 10. I said Henry, your meter reads 11$ how come you are taking only 10. He said Sir, I am a taxi driver, I am supposed to be bringing you straight to the destination. Since I did not know the last spot, I had to circle around the building.

Had I brought you straight here, the meter would have read 10$. Why should you be paying for my ignorance? He said Sir, legally, I can claim 11$, but ethically I am entitled to only 10.

He said Sir I am not a taxi driver, I am the Ambassador of Singapore without a diplomatic passport.

This is called true professionalism! A love and passion for one's work. This is what leads to self-pride and a finesse in your work.
