When your boss say “no”

Determination

Have you ever been in this position?

  • You feel you are the only one in the group who wants to make things better.
  • You are the only one in the company who cares to deliver better service.
  • You want to buy something for your mother, but she turn it down and say you’re wasting money.
  • And of course, the time you suggest some of your terribly incredible innovative idea to the boss. And he/she said “no”

How does that feel?

Well, I’m not here to console you. I’m here to state a hard truth. Your idea will be never supported.

The time of a manager is valuable. Manager must balance himself over many stuff. He won’t have much time to look into any detail. If he does, he’s probably running our of time and won’t accomplish his own work.

So what did he do? It’s simple. He just say no.

Ideas are worthless. A true boss know “action speaks more”. If you don’t have the determination to go through with the idea, then he doesn’t have to listen to it.

Well, if you think what you do worth the trouble, you will do it. After you have accomplished something, or great things, present it again. Then after that you can hope for a better answer.

You won’t know unless you try

That’s the only phrase I remembered after reading an old story.

Today, when working with my colleagues, one of them tell me: your idea is good, but it won’t work, because

Actually, that’s a very common phrase. I heard it all my years in colleague. When we are in a group and each gives out an idea, when I hear: your idea is good but… I know the conversation is going to be difficult.

An idea is an idea, and even if you think it’s not possible, at least give it some chance. Ideas themselves are meaningless. Only action can bring life up and make dreams come true.
