“Small courtesies sweeten life – The greater ones ennoble it”
More than often we ignore small courtesies in life because we fail to identify them. While discussing my MBA with a fellow friend who is reading at a top business school in London, I was pleasantly surprised at the great value Warwick offers.
Value is not only in money. Value is in value addition, value addition thru small courtesies – but of course, money matters!!
More than often I have seen many of us printing hundreds of sheets of paper only to find out that a wrong document has been printed and the bunch gets submitted to the paper bin without hesitation. All this is in addition to the 10000 print credits that we have.
There they pay 5p per copy/print-out.
We often change our mind about the choice of our hot drink, midway, after pressing the button and change our drink without hesitation.
There they pay £1.5 for a cuppa.
The unlimited fruits cookies buns and tarts can keep us going throughout the day.
There a set of 2 cookies costs 30p.
The morning dose of FT and WSJ is almost an addiction.
This addiction costs £3.5/day there.
All the books for elective modules are free for us.
There it isn’t so.
We might assume these to be very small courtesies, the greater one on our part would be to respect all this.
That’s how we shall ennoble our lives.
