Friday Sharing w/You

Friday, April 5

It’s April already and it seems the year is flying by.

Are you still taking the easy way out?

“I want the workplace to be zero incident, but I don’t have time to go through the Risk Assessment.”

“I want all the work processes to be certainty, but I don’t have time to do conduct integrity test on the processes.”

“I want to enjoy Quality Work; Quality Life, but I am always running around that I never have time for myself.”

You can’t install a Total Quality or Total Safety Management Systems and get to just do the easy way out parts to achieve your goals. In fact, you shouldn’t have set the goals if it was guaranteed to work every time.

When the tough parts come along, you cannot ignore it, it makes sense to welcome the tough parts. That’s why attempting to install a Total Quality & Safety Management System is always not easy and many organizations are unsuccessful. 

Instead of cursing your management or fearing the bad moments, understand what your management’s vision meant of achieving Quality Work; Quality Life that they have chosen reality and not some unsustainable fad. It means that they want you to do a worthwhile, difficult work to achieve Quality Work; Quality Life.

Quality Work; Quality Life only exists because of the whole. We can’t deny the tough and difficult parts that we have no choice but to embrace them.

You can’t install a Total Quality or Safety Management System. They have to be grown. They will emerge through continue quality or safety education, that is the tough part to many organizations because they are always busy. One thing for sure, if you are busy; no time for quality or safety education and if you keep doing what you are doing; you are going to keep getting what you are getting. The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing and expect different results.

Albert Einstein said: “The significant problems we faced cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them.”

Keep yourself busy (No time for quality or safety education), sounds good. It gives you the promise of achievement, a sense of hope, But busyness never delivers.

Believe me. An unexamined work processes is not worth working on it or unsafe to start in the first place. Many people after going through the Unexpected Quality Journey Workshop/Education saying “that is why we have so many incidents & accidents and our scraps & reworks are high because we never give deep thoughts to the work processes. Some are there since the day the company started.

The old sayings – If it isn’t broken, leave it the same way; don’t bother or be “kaypo.” (busybody) If you believe in this mantra, it is going to drive you to extinction.

Today, if it isn’t broken, hurry, make it a sense of urgency to make improvement on it. Example: if you hate the 6.9 million, population that the Singapore government is pushing, why are you still here, you have to hurry, make it a sense of urgency, starting moving to Malaysia. 

Never wish the easy way out. All work is a process and need discipline. There are always going to be difficult and tough times, but it is your mindset, discipline and determination that will take you through. You can’t buy Quality or Safety from the shelf and install it.  Quality or Safety are yours for the taking to develop…yet so many people don’t even realize their value.

“No human face is exactly the same in its lines on each side, no leaf perfect in its lobes, no branch in its symmetry. All admit irregularity as they imply change; and to banish imperfection is to destroy expression, to check exertion, to paralyze vitality. All things are literally better, lovelier, and more beloved for the imperfections which have been divinely appointed, that the law of human life may be Effort, and the law of human judgment, Mercy.” -John Ruskin
