***Of silver platters and pedestals***

It saddens me to encounter people who seemed to have forgotten their roots. Being in this new position now for 4 months had opened my eyes to a whole lot personalities, traits and vices of people that I have no choice but to work with. It is so sad to see this people so succumbed and so absorbed into their role and position titles just like an actor coming into a character in his play. Maybe I am just naive but what happened to modesty and being humble? What is so wrong about doing a little admin work or clerical work when you are a manager? or what is wrong with preparing the department's budget when you are just an executive and not the Head of Department? How about little old me that has to literally at one point split my body in gazillion pieces just so that I can run tasks as the head, the executive and also the office admin???? I see nothing wrong in doing tasks that is beneath us if it means getting the job done. Nothing wrong with humility, I think it makes people look up to you more at least expand your networks...I don't see why people have to be so calculative and stand for the tag line "it is not in my JD"...Gosh it won't kill you to be seen with low level employees...SO SAD for these people....such disgrace....Thank GOD my parents thought me well...yes, we had it all growing up but to an extent we are not spoilt. We never judge or befriend people because of their power and position. We were raised to be humble and start from the bottom....I am just set to make a good impression and let my work speak for itself. Maybe some would oppose and say "Yeah right, that will get you nowhere!" But at the end of the day I want to be passionate about my work and most of all I want to be sincere in accomplishing my tasks and contribute. I want to be looked as someone dependable not someone whose calculative and be rigid on what is stated on the JD...maybe I am just old fashioned that way...***sigh*** Oh well....
