Our attitude should change

Professionalism- is it always required at work place or you need it in every sphere of life? Is it fine if you do your work with perfection but when it comes to home any social activity you can be relaxed. After all it doesn't matter even if the work is not done on time or there are errors.

Then can we say we are professional because there is a fear factor working in our minds which let us be efficient at work. What is the definition of expertise in home affairs. Who has mastered it then? The home maker be that a woman or a man won't you say that person has a professional approach?

In any social activity which we are doing what gets us there-we like it,we want to do it,we are doing it for a purpose. There we hardly think of being professional, we think the fact that we are doing it is enough, that we have taken time out to do something is an achievement in itself. Does it work like that?

What I feel is professionalism is required in all spheres of life be that our home affairs, managing a wedding,hosting an event or even celebrating something.Professionalism means doing things right and at the right time come what may. What is your opinion about this?

I strongly believe that a lot of things including professionalism are habits.It is like perfectionists.they just are. People can be told to be professional,they might learn a few things, but unless it is habit, they'll always try to cut cornors, at work or elsewhere.

even doing a small thing like commenting on a blog should have professionalism. That is acquired by practice. Am I right?

As Robert Martin rightly said:

"Imagine you are on an operation table and you have an out-of-body experience wherein you are watching the doctors perform open-heart surgery on you. The doctor has a deadline, quite literally. He must get things done within that time. If the deadline cannot be reached, how do you want him to behave? Calmly doing his job step-by-step steadily or &#@*&*@&&# (#$@# #(#@$(* like that hacker at the terminal? That's being professional."

Right thing at the right time. Aptly said.

"Being professional is like being a doctor who washes his hands between visits to different patients."
