    we can also learn something from this message..............

    Mail sent by Narayan Murthy to all Infosys staff:

    It is half past 8pm in the office but the lights are still on...
    PCs still running, coffee machines still buzzing...
    And who is at work? Most of them ??? Take a closer look...

    All or most specimens are ??
    Something male species of the human race...
    Look closer... again all or most of them are bachelors...
    And why are they sitting late? Working hard? No way!!!
    Any guesses???


     


    Let us ask one of them...
    Here's what he says... "What's there to do after going home...Here we get to surf, AC, phone, food, coffee, that is why I am working late... Importantly no bosssss!!!!!!"
    This is the scene in most research centers and software companies and other off-shore offices.
    Bachelors "Time-passing" during late hours in the office just b'coz they say they've nothing else to do...

    Now what are the consequences...
    "Working" (for the record only) late hours soon becomes part of the institute or company culture.
    With bosses more than eager to provide support to those "working" late in the form of taxi vouchers, food vouchers and of course good feedback, (oh, he's a hard worker... goes home only to change..!!).
    They aren't helping things too...

    To hell with bosses who don't understand the difference between "sitting" late and "working" late!!!
    Very soon, the boss starts expecting all employees to put in extra working hours.
    So, My dear Bachelors let me tell you, life changes when u get married and start having a family... office is no longer a priority, family is... and......

    That's when the problem starts... b'coz u start having commitments at home too.
    For your boss, the earlier "hardworking" guy suddenly seems to become an "early leaver" even if u leave an hour after regular time... after doing the same amount of work.

    People leaving on time after doing their tasks for the day are labeled as work-shirkers...
    Girls who thankfully always (it is changing nowadays... though) leave on time are labeled as "not up to it". All the while, the bachelors pat their own backs and carry on "working" not realizing that they are spoiling the work culture at their own place and never knowing that they wuld have to regret it at one point of time.

    So what is the moral of the story??
    * Very clear, LEAVE ON TIME!!!
    * Never put in extra time *unless really needed
    * Don't stay back un-necessarily and spoil your company work culture which will in turn cause inconvenience to you and your colleagues.

    There are hundred other things to do in the evening..
    Learn music...
    Learn a foreign language...
    Try a sport... TT, cricket.........
    Importantly Get a girl friend or boy friend, take him/her around town...
    * And for heaven's sake net cafe rates have dropped to an all-time low (plus, no fire-walls).... and try cooking for a change !
    Take a tip from the Smirnoff ad: *"Life's calling, where are you??"*

    Please pass on this message to all your colleagues. And please do it before leaving time, don't stay back till midnight to forward this !!!

    IT IS A TYPICAL INDIAN MENTALITY THAT WORKING FOR LONG HOURS MEANS WORKING VERY HARD & 100% COMMITMENT, ETC.

    PEOPLE WHO REGULARLY SIT LATE IN THE OFFICE DON'T KNOW HOW TO MANAGE THEIR TIME. SIMPLE !


    Regards,

    NARAYAN MURTHY.
