So we all should aim to give more than 100% of our efficiency to be successful in our works. A student has to perform very well so that he can get a seat for higher studies or he may be successful in getting a job.
Retaining the job is also very difficult these days. Unless otherwise we show our full strength and work carefully there are chances we may lose our job also. I know many people roaming on the roads for a job. So everybody should put their efforts and do perform in many dimensions, we may not be successful.
An all-around performance is a key to success. Whatever work is being given to you. you should be able to complete your work irrespective of the mature of work. Then you need not worry much about losing the job. Chances will be remote.
Some people have uncanny acumen. They are amazing people. Their talent remain hidden from common masses and when they take the matter in their hands their amazing qualities astonish others. I respect such people because they dont show their talent and qualities but when suitable time comes they surprise people by their special qualities.
In my career I had received a letter from my Regional Head appreciating my 'all round' performance saying that " We need all rounders like you". Though it gave me some pride and elation then, later on I found that an all rounder has to just work and perform ,but the sweet fruits are enjoyed by some smart others.
All rounders are always sought for. They are popular too.But the one who get rewarded are those who are able to 'broadcast' and 'trumpet' their performance however small that may be. That is the smartness now needed in present day world. Others will be just left out.
