I often hear people saying, this guy or gal is smart. By smart they mean, he/she gets his/her ways by hook or by crook. And the person, who is hard working, believes in certain values, follows certain principles is called a bore, uninspiring, dull guy.
Is it really true? Cannot one really be noticed unless he/she is smart?
I was reading marketing Guru Seth’s post. Who says that old values are dying? People sticking to good old teachings are bore? And who says that good guys finish last? Once again, he emphasized on quality.
If you really want to stay ahead of competitors and want to get noticed, there are no short cuts. People following shortcuts are thrown out of every place. They truly don’t belong anywhere and are replaceable easily. Therefore don’t compromise on quality. Sooner or later lack of quality will be identifiable and you will be out of business.
I remember one particular eating joint. It’s a small place. They mostly thrive on free home delivery. Their food is really terrific and home delivery is quite prompt. If there might be some delay, they take care to inform you. No matter how small an order is, they deliver it at your doorstep without much fuss. The eating joint maintains amazing hygiene standard at a very reasonable rate. Everything they do, signify parent taught moral values. Their business is thriving due to honesty, purity, hard work, terrific service and reasonable pricing. It’s really good old plain treasures handed over to us from time immemorial by our forefathers!!
