今年的年终总结，吓了我一跳！ The Shocking Year-end Summary
2016伊始，相信很多公司都已经进行了年终总结大会，好的坏的，尽收眼前。回顾2015，阿连做了很多，也想了很多，成绩虽称不上出类拔萃，但也不负努力，收获颇丰。那你2015的成绩单如何呢？前几天，阿连刚发布完一篇《为什么你总是很忙，效率却非常低》的文章，就收到一位连粉的来信，向我们诉说了他年终总结之后的失落与惭愧：At the beginning of 2016, many companies must have the year-end summary. Each matter no matter good or bad will be summarized at the meeting. In 2015, I’ve considered and done a lot though I hadn’t outstanding achievement, I still didn’t live up to my efforts. What about your performance? A few days ago, I’ve released an article--Reasons for Low-efficiency. And then, my fan told me his low mood and shame after the year-end summary:
As year-end summary came again, I carefully combed thorough statistics of my performance this year. But the result stunned me...
What I felt about myself: I was hard-working every day, diligently completed work plan; today, I must contact with MR. REE to ask for sample test; today, I must search for 20 brands and find key persons; today, I must … with designedly work, how could I get such bad performance… For a year long, I just got 5 orders, which all were repeat orders. Even I failed to get any order in a quarter. During the two sessions of the Canton Fair, I did not get orders, on the contrary, my colleagues had new orders or repeat orders from old customers.
Were it not for this summary, I still lived in my own world, being busy in work with good feeling. In retrospect, in this year, I kept the same pace with colleagues, working hard. Actually I was somewhat perturbed when they got orders. But my faith was that I must be the next one to get orders as long as I kept struggling. With that faith, I have always insisted on. At that time, my leader talked with me for a few times, guiding my work and encouraging me to find the right direction. But it didn’t work, I failed to make any progress. With the approaching of year-end summary, I get more and more perturbed. Although my leader didn’t complain to me, instead, encouraged me for many times, it made me anxious, so I became increasingly ashamed …】
After reading his sharing, I know exactly how he felt, and how about you? Most people must agree: you've paid so much but gained little. I appreciated his insistence: you must be the next one to get orders as long as you keep struggling. But what matters a lot is do you struggle correctly?
Most of the time, we may modestly accept suggestions. But the result is not as expected. We begin to question whether the method is wrong or am I taking not enough efforts? This is not the case. The real reason is that you don't really understand what others say to you but just try hard aimlessly. What others say is a method but not the answer. Problems cannot be solved by one answer alone. Lacking of thoughts won’t bring you good result of your efforts.
So, before struggling, you should first find out a right direction, and move along it so that we could gain a real success.
Thank you Mr Lian , I like your article ,because it is easy to understand and useful . It help me a lot
yes, this is really what i want to say, and what i'm thinking about these days. i want to quit, even i have made this decision basically, i feel sooo tired, i don't want to insist on it even more.
am i wrong? i want to have a ordinary work, no much pressure, so that i can have a relax feeling, as i grown up, i want to have a simple life more and more.
Thanks for your sharing. I like your active feeling for working, you are so amazing,
this sentence you said"I still lived in my own world, being busy in work with good feeling".
I think I should do like this, good feeling for working, Then I will be much happier
MR.Lian ,I like your summary
