Business: Not a necessary evil
"My father always told me that all businessmen were sons of bitches, but I never believed it till now"
- J. F. Kennedy
What I today realized is, more than anything else, MBE is an endeavour to correct the definition of 'business'. While most of us agree that what we learn here, is more like a fairytale and there is a real world outside.
But, today I really am fascinated, to try it for myself. Business is all about people, as we say it here. Could people be so cruel not to accept something in their own favour?
I've tried to explain people what we mean by Excellence, but have lost them the moment i say "business is not only about making money" Maybe I should not try to explain, rather act! The results here are all long term.. If nothing else, atleast I've learnt to keep trying..
I wonder business or trade in its earliest form was a win-win phenomenon. What has made it change to win-lose?
I am not sure if it is my childish mind that I get convinced so easily, but this does get me thinking! Of new ideas to do things in the best way, to integrate knowledge, to use it to the best of my ability, to be creative..
