Thank God it’s Monday! Why? By Chinedu Diego

Chinedu Adaakiti, Thank God it’s Monday!

John Maxwell says if you know how, you’ll always have a job, but if you know why, you’ll be the employer, ALWAYS. Have you noticed how there seems to be a national quarrel with the question ‘why’? Bosses act like it’s beneath them to answer, peers like its unnecessary and subordinates like it’s way beyond their capacity to grasp. So like a nation of zombies we grope in a darkness of unanswered whys. Many of the things we do are simply irrational yet shrouded in darkness that a simple why may have stripped bare.

From today, do yourself a favour. Rather than sink into the familiarity of ‘that’s how it’s done’, ‘I like it/ him/ her’, ‘they won’t agree/ give me’…Ask why and don’t go away with the first answer that floats your way, keep drilling down until you find the real why, it will help if you are completely honest with you even if you are a pathological lie with everyone else.

Personally, I’ve found if I’m not careful I can do a lot of the surface nice things to make me fit in. Make people think more highly of me than they ought too. The hidden assumption of cause is that this will make me happy but does it? Does practising a career you totally hate but which gives perks your friends envy really make you happy? Are you a valued employee? Do you know your job? The business? Try to get through about five why’s before stopping, it makes a huge difference why!

Happy Monday
