So they say that you learn a lot about a person when you’ve spent time in jail with them. However, I think you also learn a lot about a person when you’ve worked with them. I don’t know if there is a direct link there… we’ll move on.
The point is: work ethic. How important is this. I do believe that there is invariably going to be different facets to a person. 1) The person you are and portray when you are with your friends, 2) the person you are and portray when you are with your family, and 3) the person you are, and portray, when you are at work.
Your friends see and know the whimsical side of you. The side maybe that you let down and let lose, the side that needs a kindred, another to relate to, or alternatively another who is completely different to you that shows you maybe something you would like to be, or would not like to be, as the case may be.
Your family know the person you were and the person you hope to be, the person you were when nothing else mattered but just being you.
And your work colleagues will know your, hopefully, more responsible, reasonable and integral side.
Of course, the hope is you will inherently remain the same person, just with different masks, tasks and reasons. Try and maintain this inherent truth of yourself throughout your own personal facets of life and through your journey.
I have seen it change so rapidly in a person. It’s not becoming. Be able to switch and adapt to your roles without losing who you are inside. And if you’re not happy with who you are inside, well, change it.
As you were.
