Being Different!! Curse or Blessing? February 25, 2008

Posted by Talha Izhar in Uncategorized.

There has been a lot going on in my life these days, of which arguing with a colleague has become a regular feature. The topics that we argue for or against are general topics, based on politics, business, jobs, HR issues and many more. But we never seem to agree.

My colleague is an accomplished person in his field, he has seen all the ups and downs but I’ve never found any of his arguments worth agreeing upon. Why?

This is not the first time that such a thing has happened. I have always had a point of view on most of the things and it has always been different from the majority. Whenever I discuss anything I am always in the minority. A very few people partially share my point of view, and even fewer (or negligible) agree 100%.

I am lost.

Is being different a blessing or is it a curse?

Being different can both be a curse as well as blessing. It just depends on how you play your cards. While we all want our ideas/opinions/suggestions to be heard and accepted, some of us fail to respect others’ POV. The key is to be flexible and accommodating enough to at least listen to the other person and avoid disagreeing with him/her bluntly while at the same time be vocal enough to let people know what we think and more importantly WHY do we think that way.

On a lighter note…if any of ur colleagues unnecessarily argues with u to the level of irritating you then you probably need to consider this quote:

“Never argue with an idiot because they’ll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” –Marcel Floch

Being different is good as long as the bounds of sanity are maintained.
