The world is changing very fast and what was ok yesterday is not adequate today. Expectations are going up. Lot of products and services are becoming obsolete day by day. The purpose of one’s time is to add value to others and the more value that you add, the more valuable you become!
However, we may not be aware of the changes in the expectations of others with reference to our quality of output, until one day we are told that our services are not required anymore. The value of our time is not decided by us, but by those who receive our services.
It makes a lot of sense to check periodically if others continue to value our time and services the same way they did some time back. Possibly changes would have taken place in their expectations or there could have been a deterioration in our work quality without our awareness or someone else may have come up to offer a better quality of service.
