We have heard various generations, be it X, Y, Z, ABCD or whatever.
But have we realized that we are a generation of constant follow-ups (F-Ups)?
Be it getting that piece of furniture that you might have ordered from the likes of Hometown etc. assembled,
The internet connection when you move to a new house installed,
Any other thing that you tend to live upon on a daily basis.
There is a constant need to follow up with the service providers,
Be it the government
the private sector.
Makes me wonder, when as a society, we would become professional enough to meet what we say or promise.
Words have become such a loose commodity.
Whether it be reporting or reaching on time, as promised,
Meeting the T&C of a contract,
No matter be it on a legal piece of paper or not,
We tend to violate the trust code,
Without realising that it’s the basis of any association or communication in the society we choose to live in.
And when people start taking this code lightly, credibility is bound to go down.
Be it at a personal level, let’s say when you commit to someone for marriage,
As a country, where the intention is to attract investments from different quarters, which gets reflected in the indicators such as ease of doing business in a country.
The gap also represents an opportunity, in a society like ours, where doing what’s promised, becomes a key differentiator of sorts.
Wonder, when all of us will do as we say we would! 🙂
