What’s your odour? How do you smell? It is very fundamental to associate a smell to our self because others will do it anyway. If we do not have our own then the one which people associate will become that of ours. It is very rare that people are going to rate us with a perfume smell. Even if we do a zillion good things, a past minor mistake is enough to give a stinking smell.
Maybe the perfume does not exist. There is only stinking smell. So we should make sure to keep our surrounding away from all the stinking smells. We might not be able to keep that away. But we can sure apply some perfume to our self so that we avoid all those stinky smells. And most importantly we should not expect others to smell us good, if we our self are stinky.
Here is a small story. One there lived a laptop. Wi-fi device was its best friend. It used to bring internet to the laptop. They used to enjoy each other’s company. One fine day a better Wi-fi device was installed and previous one was sold out. The new Wi-fi device and laptop could not be good friends as laptop specifications were low for the new Wi-fi device.
Though there were no issues in bringing the internet to laptop, the combination somehow looked odd. There was a lot of generation gap. Laptop had developed an inferiority complex. Very soon laptop was replaced with a new one and the same person who had purchased the old Wi-fi device had purchased this laptop too. New device had found a new friend and older one got its friend back. They both were happy but however it was not long.
The cycle kept repeating. I don’t want to explain what this story signifies. Very soon the story might get outdated because of generation gap. It is important that we stick to our generation where similar cultures are valued. Else it becomes stinky.
Learning how to converse in a group has always been a challenge. Now things are different. Learning how to listen in a group is also a challenge. Learning how to interpret things and to stay with open mind is also a challenge. Not taking anything personal is also a challenge. Learning how not to repeatedly point out at someone else mistake is also a challenge. We have many to learn isn’t it??
