Giving talks to new joiners in my previous company was one of the things I love doing. I spoke about some technical matters and processes. But I liked it more when I discussed about the company’s core values. Two of them which I strongly believed in are stewardship and integrity. Most of my attendees were fresh graduates. Their eyes glowed with hope and excitement. At that point, anything was possible for them. A lot of things were within their reach. They had a clean slate. For them, it was a start of something new. A beginning.

Like a birth of an infant, a beginning is when the energy is overflowing. The parents are full of optimism. They see limitless possibilities for their child. They like to do everything and give anything for their kid. But a lot of times, the “doing everything” is what bewilders them and they lose focus on the “for the child” part. I hope I won’t be a victim of that circumstance. By writing this down, maybe I would be reminded later on.
