You need not run away, I just
asked “how do you do?” in Swahili language of Kenya. Truthfully, how do you do?
I come here sparingly recently but my mind is always with you. The beauty of
life is to maximize every hour that you have, as such, when there are
constraints, you will know that you have put your best foot forward in the past.
Today is a good day!
As I customarily do, I will start
with a story. There was an old man, he was not so rich but quite comfortable.
He had two cars and he was handling these cars with utmost care. In fact, he
did not allow his son to drive any of his cars until he returned from the
mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). After a while, he took ill and
passed on. These cars were used to roughly by his nephew after his death. Let’s
consider, Finicky vs Blasé.
Finicky is a state of being very
detailed about how certain things are done. A finicky person is usually a
person of very high standard. Such people have a mindset of how his vicinity
should look like and such people usually have a very strong retentive memory
remembering the nitty-gritty about a lot of things. Finicky people are disliked
because they do not leave any stone untouched in their daily living. As a
matter of fact, careers that deal with human lives require people to be
finicky, or else, human lives will be wasted indiscriminately.
Blasé is a state of living life
as it comes. The nonchalant attitude of such people typically reflects in many
ways. They have a dirty environment and it makes no meaning to them. They are
loved by people because they don’t give a damn about how things pan out. What
they lack many times is organizational skills and this is very crucial in other
areas of life.
In all, we all need to strike a balance.
A finicky person is perceived as domineering many times while a blasé person
leaves everything to chance. There is a cost to both types of personality,
however, we really need to weigh the pros and cons of both personality. A lot
of people hide under the guise that they cannot change but, interestingly,
there is a school of thought that does not agree to the postulation.
If it is considered as a
temperament, activate helpful temperament that has been dormant in you and you
will be glad you did!
