A Passion for Punctuality

August 24th, 2012 · 20 Comments

Just as the Rajdhani pulled out of the station, it came to a halt almost immediately. Apparently, someone had pulled a chain. There was much activity, and as one of the other engine drivers explained to me, this one is a very special train. It cannot be even a minute late – its performance is monitored centrally in Delhi. I had experienced the on-time arrival the previous day.

What struck me was the passion and pride with which he spoke. That point – “It cannot even be a minute late” – stayed with me. And I brought it up in our company sales review the next day — that the focus has to be on achieving our full targets, and not be satisfied with being short by a few lakhs. Seeing the passion in the railway staff brought home the point that much is possible if we have the right mindset — even in a government job.

And on that hinges the future of India. How can we transform ourselves into a modern, developed nation in a generation?

    Totally true we should take pride is achieving whatever we wanted to, set goals and accomplish them then only we will progress. How do you think our nation can progress, more to a more developed nation? Please give your views.

    Do not give up on your dreams. Dreams give life purpose. Remember that the key to success is not happiness, spirit! If you want to succeed, avoid to think about failure, but to think and try to succeed.
