Yes, you must be aware of this but still I am sharing this. It struck me again today!!
Look around and imagine why the following are not No 1:
- Pan Shop keeper vs. Best Pan Shop keeper in the town
- Carpenter vs. Best Carpenter whom you call every time
- Web Designer vs. Best Web Designer who designs stuff for you
- Shopkeeper vs. Most famous shopkeeper
- List can go on and on….
If you carefully analyze you will see the Pan Shop keeper vs. Best Pan Shop keeper, the latter is the best not because of the quality of pan he is selling but because he is fast, interacts with his customers, understands his customer’s taste.
Similarly the best carpenter is someone not only because of his carpentry but is someone whom you call every time as he gives free consultancy on the way things needs to be shaped
The best web designer will be someone who not only designs (knows Photoshop etc.) but can work on taglines and content.
So next time you see someone and think “Oh!! This person is working so hard and still not able to become the best” – do not feel pity, always remember a person CANNOT ROCK with JUST 1 SKILL-SET
(Just apply this ideology in your day to day life and you will see how true it is … atleast I have felt it 🙂 )
