Love thy people
“Love people; use things. Not vice versa” – Kelly Ann Rothaus
In today’s society, we are often used or use people as things. This is even more prevalent in a corporate environment whereby superiors take their staff members as things and use them as they please, discarding them after they have outlived their usefulness. There is lack of empathy and Kelly Ann Rothaus nails it right on the head with this quote.
We should love our people, and they will use the things provided to them to do a great job for us and not vice versa. May this be a reminder to supervisors, managers and bosses, your staff are humans who deserve your respect and empathy, they are not tools to be used and discarded as and when you feel like it. Partnerships are the future, the old model of employer and employees will no longer drive businesses forward. For the rest of us, we too need to remind ourselves to not use our friends and loved ones as tools, instead love them and you will have more to gain instead.
