Self Appraisal

How far in these days of up-coming B-Schools or MNC’s ‘ Self- appraisal’ important? As a management student, I know its worth and importance of it. Not stretching any further, will tell you all my own experience when I was hoping to earn a bit and save some as my vacations had already begun in full vigour. All that I could see everywhere were hoardings announcing “Summer Jobs Available” contact so and so.

I decided to take it up as a project as assigned by my own self, and more of having a self-experience and learning to earn and save bit by bit, I went into drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. I climbed onto the carton so that I could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits.


I heard the store-owner listening talking to a lady who was on the other end of the line: Asking for the receiver to be given to me, I asked the lady who was talking to the store-owner, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn? She replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn." "Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now." I replied. But to my dismay, I found that she was very satisfied with the person who was presently cutting her lawn. Now, I realized I was in real trouble; if this lady wouldn’t oblige me, I would not surely be able to prove myself or earn a bit and save more.

 My trials at various junctions of “Ready To Do Summer Jobs” had made me more perseverant and I offered, "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of Palm beach, Florida." But as ill-luck had knocked my doors of earning a bit and saving more again the woman answered in the negative. With a dry smile on my face, I replaced the receiver. The store-owner, who was listening to all, walked over to me and said, "Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job."

I replied, "No thanks, I was just checking my performance with the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady, I was talking to!" All that I have to say is be perseverant in your efforts to strive anything good. No schools teaches you all this. It’s your own positive attitude, live experiences and self-appraisal which helps you climb the ladders of success. All the best for all your future ventures!!
