The boss

Friday Fictioneers, Boss

He double checked if everything was in place for the next day. He didn’t want his boss to find any mistakes with his work. It was late. As he was walking down the corridor, he was surprised. The lights were on in his boss’s cabin! Was she actually there? He went in to check and there she was.
“What are you still working on boss?”
“I’m going through the presentation you sent”
“Can’t it be done tomorrow?”
“I don’t know what tomorrow holds. So why not just finish it today?”
Now he knew he knew why she was the boss.

  2. It’s true! One can never know what tomorrow holds. It’s best to complete the work today.
    But I wonder why the boss didn’t delegate the task to the junior? They usually do that, don’t they?

    1. Reema D'souza says:

      She was reviewing the junior’s work! That is the boss’s job isn’t it?

  3. A lovely tale. Yes, we don’t know what’s in store tomorrow. So finish the task at hand today itself.

      Yes, that is true!

    The hardest workers get rewarded. Hardworkers are constantly learning and improving. People who show the desire to learn often have a better chance of getting where they want rather than people who sit on their previous accolades.

    1. Reema D'souza says:

      Yes Maggie! That is so true. We need to keep learning each day.

  10. Short, simple but a very strong message.
