When it comes to a slabstic attitude, I don’t think that this type of attitude is anything new for it has probably been around for as long as we can remember. However, there are many who would argue that it appears to be getting worse as the years roll by.
It seems that up until about five years ago, people seemed to take their commitments more seriously. They appeared to be only too willing to go the extra mile and to go beyond the call of duty in order to satisfy their customers and clients. Helping hands seemed to abound much more than they do today. Patience and a propensity to understand appeared to be much more in supply than now and there was so much more to smile about.
What has changed? Why do we find ourselves having to deal with and rebuff slabstic attitudes? Is it that we are living in a world where we do not seem to be able to have as much time to maintain our people skills? Or is it that we simply have lost our way when it comes to caring and believing?
Is it that we are choosing to complain more as opposed to proacting more? Or is it that we are deliberately choosing to become a part of the problem rather than being a part of the solution?
Whatever the reasons; it may be time for us to stand still for those few moments and take stock.
Just my two cents for today.
