REWARDING PEOPLE IN ADVANCE CAN INDEED MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE!!

Do you think rewarding people in advance makes more sense?

You would agree with me that sometimes even an  ordinary event can be an extraordinary event life- lessons for all of us.Like it happened at a lunch I had with with a friend a few years ago. As for as I can recall it,the food was good, and the conversation unforgettable. But what made the lunch memorable was really terrific and unusual.

As we entered the restaurant and sat down at our table, my friend reached for his wallet. He pulled out a 100-rupee note and handed it to the waiter, who accepted it with a big smile. Trust me, the size of the tip did not surprise me at all- it was the timing.

It was for the first time I had seen someone tipping for services even before we had ordered our meal. We got treated like royalty that afternoon. The service was quick, the waiter seemed to be hovering around us and there was a big smile all the time at his face. As we walked out after a great meal, I kept wondering: Why don’t we all tip before a meal? -rather than after a meal.

If we think about it, the lesson goes beyond tipping. Rewarding other people- in advance can bring magical result. So what really happened at the restaurant that day? By paying the tip upfront, my friend was telling the waiter, ‘I know you will do a terrific job of looking after us!’ And the waiter was probably telling himself, ‘Ah! He trusts me to look after him well. I must do all I can to live up to his expectations’. We expected great service that afternoon- and got it!

Unfortunately, most of us are brought up on a diet of conditional love and recognition. ‘ if you come first in class, then you will get a wrist watch’. Since only one kid can come first, that leaves  rest of us feeling inferior and unsure about ourselves. And yes,now imagine what might have happened if your father had given you a watch at the start of  your school term,said he knew you were a bright kid, and that he expected you to do well.

Your father expressing this confidence in you can create miracle. You would do all you could to live up to his expectations. Would that ensure you come first in  class? No, not quite.But would it make you do your best and perform to your full potential? You bet! It is for sure!

AND THAT IS REALLY WHAT LIFE IS ALL ABOUT AND YOUR INOVATIVE INSTINCTS PAYS OFF.

  1. Rewarding people in advance is indeed a good thing because it motivates a person to accomplish something better than usual. But I think that this should not ALWAYS happen. Because there are times that when we don’t reward someone before doing what they told, they become tired of their task and will end up always expecting for a reward in order to give an effective service or result. That’s my opinion.

    1. Hi Mary.Thanks for your thoughtful comments. All i can say is a coin always has two sides. Likewise a knife in the hand of a surgeon saves somebidy’s life while same knife in the hand of a murderer takes away somebody’s life.I hope you get me what i mean to say.

      Hv a grt time.
