Management lesson from Gita (a Hindu scripture) - Part 2

Following up with part 1

Here are few additional teaching from GITA.

Welcome and accept change with open arm: 

            Arjuna, when inertia is predominant; ignorance, inactivity, carelessness, and delusion arise.


Work and act with conviction: 

            Whatever is done without faith - whether it is sacrifice, charity, austerity, or any other act -- is useless. It has no value here or hereafter, O Arjuna.


Set high standards: 

             Because whatever noble persons do, others follow. Whatever standard they set up, the world follows


Think with a calm mind: 

              Lord Krishna says: Undoubtedly, O Arjuna, the mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but it is subdued by any constant vigorous spiritual practice -- such as meditation -- with perseverance, and by detachment, O Arjuna.

Give up on results: 

              These are the most oft-repeated words of the Bhagavad Gita and often referred to as nishkam karma, doing action without expecting reward: You have control over doing your respective duty only, but no control or claim over the results. The fruits of work should not be your motive, and you should never be inactive.

Thank you!
