Management by perception

If you work for a boss who reacts before getting the facts and thinking things through, you will love this!

Arcelor-Mittal Steel, feeling it was time for a shakeup, hired a new CEO.

The new boss was determined to rid the company of all slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, the CEO noticed a guy leaning against a wall.
The room was full of workers and he wanted to let them know that he meant business. He asked the guy, "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young man looked at him and said, "I make $400 a week. Why?"

The CEO said, "Wait right here." He walked back to his office, came back in two minutes, and handed the guy $1,600 in cash and said, "Here's four weeks'
pay. Now GET OUT and don't come back."
Feeling pretty good about himself the CEO looked around the room and asked, "Does anyone want to tell me what that goof-ball did here?"

From across the room a voice said, "Pizza delivery guy from Domino's."

This story reminds me that most of the senior managers are managing peolple by perception.
They have only fragments of imprpession of what you did in the past in their mind, they will forget those good one and remember those bad things. So if you did 100 good things, and one bad things. Your boss will only registers you are 100% bad as you had only bad things in his mind.

Clever man works smart to aviod going into trouble, we got to exercise certain risk mangement before jump into conclusion to execute the Boss's instruction or not!?
Does not care if you had able to handle that!?
