My daughter's thoughts, as a prayer before starting work.

*Factory Daily Meetings*
{It only took 3 minutes to deliver all this verbally. Perhaps Tamil is just more efficient}

We have resumed these sunset and sunrise meetings and they need to happen every day.
It only needs to be 5 minutes, but in these 5 minutes we shall set the intention for our day, our shift, our work.
This is not a company where you just come to earn a salary and go unaffected by what you do.
You give 10 hours to the company every day.
We want every one to feel a sense of pride and satisfaction in what they do. Every day.
Take these meetings as a prayer with which to start and end your work.

Look at your hands.
Put your hands out and look at your palms.
These are your God given hands.
With these hands you can do great good or great harm.
With these hands you can respect or reject people or anything you touch.
Look at your hands for at least 10 seconds today. And every time you come to these meetings.
Let us use our hands to do great good.
To do the best that we can do with these hands.
What we do in these 10 hours and beyond depends on our hands.
Let us use them as wisely and as well as we can.

The products you make are your children.
Don't orphan them, don't disfigure them, don't leave them nameless and tagless.
Treat them with love and respect for they are your present and your future.
Shape them with your hands to feel a sense of pride and satisfaction.
Each day as you complete your work, you should be proud of the whole hearted honesty that you have put in.

Our pride doesn't extend only 1 foot around us.
It extends to encompass our coworkers, our areas, the whole company.
We want this pride to extend to everyone's homes and lives.
Keep your area clean, keep the entire premises clean and take your discipline and learning home.
When you invite your mother to your workplace you should feel pride, not have her coming to clean up after you. On any day, every day.

Our pride, our positivity, our satisfaction is not ours alone.
We are a family and we are all interconnected.
Our energy affects everyone's energy.
If one of us gets hurt, all of us are hurt.
If one of us has an an accident on the way home, it makes all of us feel vulnerable.
If one of us thinks negatively, it can sour all of us.
But on the other hand if we each focus, take pride and look to be happy with our 10 hours of effort, then it raises the energy for us all.
Let us make this a happy family that we are all proud to belong to.

Every day, at least once at the start of the shift let us remember these things and create a day that we want.
Let us look at our hands and remember to use them as well as we can.
Let us use these meetings as a prayer.
To create a day where we feel pride and satisfaction.
Every day.
