In our team, a guy was really bad at work, and we discovered this after working with him for a few days. He used to bother us all the time by asking us to teach him this or that. We used to feel irritated as this would hinder our productivity.
I read this quote on the Black Lotus app “Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, and tolerant of the weak and the wrong. Sometime in life, you will have been all of these.”
I thought of inculcating this powerful lesson in my work. I felt that my colleague, being the sole breadwinner of the family, had a responsibility to help him as it would have been difficult for him if he got fired. Somewhere he reminded me of my dad.
All of us started helping him regularly, and no matter how simple the query was, I taught him (I got to log in a few RAKs, too 😉). Now, after a couple of months, he’s become pretty independent. We all are happy for him. ❤️
Be compassionate to the weak.
