Finally, it educates you to understand the purpose of your activity.
You know about Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam right?
Once during his tenure as a project director at ISRO he had a habit of a casual visit to the shop floors and frontline employees just to have some interactions. At that time the entire team of ISRO was busy with developing an Indigenous Missile. While Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam was just walking towards the shop floor and noticed a person carrying some documents and that documents consist of some blueprints of visual maps and diagrams. Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam stopped him and asked him, “Excuse me gentle man, may I know what you were carrying with you?”
He replied as “I don’t know sir and our Sr.Project Engineer ask me to get this documents on his table to his shop floor”
Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam asked him, “Do you know about what is happening here and what we are doing?
That person replies that “I don’t know sir and my job is to obey the instruction given by my Sr Project Engineer”
Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam said “Ok gentleman, you are doing a great job and helping us a lot, Thank you.”
That person is really confused about what is the greatest job i have done here and why Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam is appreciating me? I always used to just carry a bunch of files and documents and would help to arrange chairs and tables if there were any meetings. He can’t get an answer and moves back to his routine job.
On that same evening Dr.A.P.JAbdul Kalam called all project engineers and Sr.Project engineers and scientists for an urgent meeting. Dr.A.P.J explained what happened this morning and instructed his team that “it is important to educate the purpose of this project and about the purpose why we are doing it. It’s not only about Seniors and instructors, my opinion is that each and every one should know about the purpose of our project. If everyone understands the purpose clearly our project is half successful”.
So understanding the purpose is another important factor. If you know the purpose, you can easily set a path. Once you identify your path you can easily see hurdles in your path. Once you get noticed about hurdles you can provide solutions for those hurdles. Once problems are solved you can achieve your destination successfully.
