Even while we were still there with you, we gave you this rule: “He who does not work shall not eat.”

The Book of 2 Thessalonians

At that time, my father was happy in knowing that I got my first job. He advised, “Now that you are starting to earn for yourself and for your family someday, make it a habit to keep in mind – ‘don’t forget to bring home the bacon.’

In my ignorance, I thought my father would like me to eat bacon regularly. The truth was, I hadn’t seen yet what bacon looks like, and even tasted the texture. I only heard during my early days, that at most the rich can afford to buy this food. The bacon really tastes good with  egg upon my first encounter.

Just at work when I heard the charge from our head of sales, he said, “Howdy folks. How y’all? What the hell yuh waitin’ for? Let’s act now and delve into the market. Bring home the bacon at the end of the day.”

πŸ’‘It is all about achieving something effecting  to – hitting the goal. To work hard and deliver what is expected to be done.

This expression is apllicable not only in sales undertaking but also in every department of any organization in pursuit to achieve something.

Throughout my career life, I used to serve the bacon to make everybody happy and was excited to hear from somebody in the team, “Wake up guys, I bring home the bacon.”

The bacon tastes better when everyone in the team has to partake of it. 🍏

Mr Frank Bettger, the author of How I Raised  Myself from Failure to Success in Selling, shared this poem which maybe it will do something for a person. Here it is:

There may be nothing wrong with you, 
The way you live, the work you do,
But I canΒ  very plainly see
Exactly what is wrong with me.

It is not that I'm indolent
Or dodging duty by intent;
I work as hard as anyone, And yet I get so little done,
The morning goes, the noon is here,
Before I know, the night is near,
And all around me, I regret,
Are things haven't finished yet.
If I could just get organized!
Not all that matters is the man;
The man must also have a plan.
