SOLUTIONS TO EXECUTIVES WHO RUN BUSINESSES DURING THIS HARD TIMES

What I am going to write is nothing new .Just common sense

.I am writing this Opinion in the car  travelling to office from Kotte to the Mutwal Harbour to give kick start to the daily work commencement  .If I do not go early    ( or give impression to my low level managers and workers that I may turn up 7.00  am  any time early) they tend to take things easy .

I m travelling in the car and my driver drive uses the brake to drive instead of accelerator ! and stopping slowing down frequently along the way thru the city .

I cannot tolerate this agony daily in getting stuck in traffic

.If I decide to leave late there is no Electricity at home  and it is quite warm

What I do is get into the car in the front ,put on the car Air conditioning and put my lap top on top of my lap” and connect my broadband thru either hot spot” of the smart phone or ,using the broad band dongle from Dialog  and get into Internet and reply to all my mails which came last evening and or send emails to my managers on important issues .

I write opinions to paper as I see the mess we are in when we travel to work,for  example  a water leak in Rajagiriya for last few days and Water Board is not attending to repairs or the poor man’s travelling companion three wheeler” which I call a menace .and how they break every traffic rule and create chaos ,traffic light off due to power cut or wise policeman remotely putting them off, or passing Kollonnawa sometimes feeling the bad smell from the garbage dump, traffic jams created by unruly drivers ( some time wearing  a tie like me !) .

My AC is on  and  ,broadband is on I work efficiently during 1-1.5 hours to work an 1-2 hours back home,and I do not get irritated for people breaking traffic rules except keep telling my driver not to drive using the brake all the time .He says that Sir I cannot help ”

One might say Oh you have  a car  and driver and a mobile broadband ,!!!

We are not so effluent?”

Now a days everyone has a  tablet or tap top ,school children and middles class executives , and if you are in the bus or train you have a  “driver ”

If you drive to work with your wife or over 18 child let them drive .

I will guarantee that Your efficiency will go up  and youe will nor get heart attacks ( which I got at 50 and now healthy after a bypass)

Now all offices do not have generators therefore ,when you go obviously no fans ,no AC and it is hot and  some computers do not work

Take you annual holiday and go to Sinharaja or to you village where you do not need any of above !!

I mentioned in one of hard hitting opinion that we cannot depend on state to supply everything as they are failing

I AM REACHING MY DESTINATIONN  AMD  HAVE DONE  SOMETHING FOR THE DAY

    I quite like the way you put your opinion without getting frustrated, losing temper or getting agitated on your journey to work.
    All what you say is quite correct and common sense too, which of course for most of the Sri Lankans common sense is not the most common commodity. I thoroughly enjoyed your breif.
