Avoid Micro-Management & Respect Each and Everyone

In chapter 5 of Gita, Karma-Sanyas-Yog, Lord shree Krishna said in verse 8,

યોગયુક્ત તત્વને જાણનારો મનુષ્ય જુએ, સાંભળે, સ્પર્શ કરે, સૂંઘે, ખાય, ચાલે, ઊંઘે, શ્વાસ લે, બોલે, મળત્યાગ કરે, ગ્રહણ કરે, નેત્ર ઉઘાડે તથા મીંચે તો પણ "ઇન્દ્રિયોના વિષયોમાં ઇન્દ્રિયો વર્તે છે" એમ સમજી "હું કાંઈ જ કરતો નથી" એમ મને છે.

The wise person knows, just like breathing, smelling, opening and closing eyelid, eat, sleep happens automatically, just like that He believes that everything is happening by itself. I’m just doing nothing.

Same in business, do not try to micro-manage things. Some things happen by itself. And let them happen in their own way. If you will spend your time in micro-managing those small things then you will never able to focus on other important things.

The another important thing is,

જ્ઞાનીઓ વિદ્યાવિનયયુક્ત બ્રાહ્મણમાં, ગાયમાં, હાથીમાં, કૂતરામાં તથા ચાંડાલમાં પણ સમાન દ્રષ્ટિ રાખવાવાળા હોય છે.

Sometimes people only respect certain people. Like some people only give respect to rich and financially sound people but they don’t pay attention to middle or lower income group people. Such behavior is not proper. Same way in office as well, we give attention to some people and we might not give attention to the office boy, pun, watchman, cleaner, etc. or Senior Developer vs Junior Developer. One must consider each and everyone with equality. Each and everyone should be respected. Just say them Hi or Hello and see the Joy that you and they get.
