Our dear cellgroup leader Chee Foo prepared a special word for cellgroup last week on 'How to succeed in your career'. What's special is that he and some of our cellgroup members also prepared a mini drama to complement with his preaching! The first half of the drama is about how to ace an interview, the what-to-dos and what-not. The second half is about good and bad working attitude in workplace. Of course, this drama could not be made possible without our exemplary cast:
1. Joshua - as Caleb, who is a fresh graduate with good EQ and is very well prepared for the interview, and later as a good worker who displays excellent work attitude.
2. Grace - as Sharon, a blur and sloppy candidate with low EQ and is very ill-prepared for the interview, and later as a sloppy worker who displays lousy work attitude.
3. Benny - as the boss who interviewed the two candidates, and later as their superior in the workplace.
(also not forgetting Shao Qin who is helping out as the narrater in describing the scenerio details to the audience.)
Want to see them in action? Check out these video snippets below...
Scene 1: Ms Sharon's disaster interview
Scene 2: Mr. Caleb's winning interview
Scene 3: Ms. Sharon's sloppy work attitude
The last scene, which is about Mr. Caleb and his excellent work attitude, was not recorded as the camera-lady ran out of memory space in her camera. Anyway, the moral of the story is to have a successful career, one got to be well-prepared in every situation and have good and winning attitude even right from the start from interview stage to the workplace itself.
Sounds easy but hard to follow right? The fact is a winning attitude does not come naturally, it needs to be developed and requires much effort, change, discipline and willingness. The bible says 'Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth (Proverbs 10:4).' So every time we feel like compromising, we only need to remind ourselves with this verse to get back on track.
Most importantly, we can't have true and lasting career success without good work-life balance! If we work hard, we need to play hard too. So remember to take time to smell the roses, spend time with God and your family, pursue your hobbies and exercise. (Tip: If you don't have time, pray to God and ask him to help you come out with more time!) :)
Anyway, below are some shots taken that day....enjoy!
