Long time ago during job interview…
– What are your strengths?
– I know it may sound crazy, but I’m lazy and this is my strength!
– How is it possible?
– I don’t like overtime. I hate to do the same job over and over. I don’t like to feel nervous one hour before the deadline. But…. my computer loves to work all the time, even at night!
– Now I understand. Unfortunately, sometimes overtime is necessary.
– Sure, but only for people that give up on quality. Instead working more and more, we can eliminate waste. Why not to improve communication, procedures, products, internal deliveries etc.?
– People are too lazy for that…
What will be your answer?
