ALWAYS LEAVE OFFICE ON TIME !! Do you agree with these or not ??

" ALWAYS LEAVE OFFICE ON TIME"

1) work is never ending process, you can never finish work.
2) Interest of client is not more important than your family.
3) if you fail in life your boss or client will not be the person to offer a helping hand but your family or friends will do.
4) Life does not mean coming to office, going home and sleeping There is more to a life. you need a time to socialize, entertainment, exercise and relaxation. Dont make your life meaningless.
5) A person who sits in office till late is not a hardworking person, but he/she is a fool who doesn't know how to finish work in simulated time. Beside he is a loser in life who doesn't have personal or social life.
6) you did not study hard and struggle in life to be a machine and live a meaning less life.
7) if your boss forces you to work late then forward this to him too. he will try to make his life meaningless too.


Are you agree with all these points ??

i am not agree with 5). I feel this approach bit of misleading.......!!

    May 1 2012: Hi Shivang, here are some points I disagree with:
    1) work is never ending process, you can never finish work.
    Maybe not, but you can finish TASKS. This is why we sometimes stay later, to finish tasks, either because they are due the next day, but also because "finishing" something gives a sense of satisfaction and closure, hence frees the mind. I'd rather leave 20min later but having finished what I'd started so I can go home and feel free in my head.
    4) Life does not mean coming to office, going home and sleeping There is more to a life. you need a time to socialize, entertainment, exercise and relaxation. Dont make your life meaningless.
    True also. This is why most countries limit the legal amount of time you are supposed to work. in France it's 35, in others it's 40, etc. Of course a lot of people work more than that, but it is up to each and everyone to appreciate how much "free" time they need. You may work a 65h a week, if you know that behind you can work a normal 40h week and go home on time every day.
    5) A person who sits in office till late is not a hardworking person, but he/she is a fool who doesn't know how to finish work in simulated time. Beside he is a loser in life who doesn't have personal or social life.
    Not having a personal or social life does not make you a loser. Depending on your age/ imperatives of life, you can be far from your family, friends, not married yet, widowed, etc. Also some people are lucky enough to work with their passion, hence to people like that, working late is actually not a problem, since they're having fun. You may be working for the greater good, for the community, making a difference, doing something positive, or supporting your family, or simply working hard by moral standard. There are many reasons that can justify sitting in an office till late, and all of the above are, in my opinion, traits of a hardworking person.

    Cheers!
