Overwork = Beard?

Of late, my young friend who has a radiant smile turns up in the office with a beard. Okay, you can't call it a beard. He hasn't shaved for past few days. So he has hair all over his face which he has chosen to ignore for now. Very soon, it is growing into a full-fledged beard. Not only does the beard make him look tired but also masks the radiant smile on his face. Haven't you come across people whose smiles can make you want to smile because of the energy it exudes? My young friend falls under that category.

When I asked him about the reason for the soon-to-be beard, pat came the answer. Where is the time to shave? I sympathize with my friend. He has been putting long hours of late. But you don't need a beard to find this out. A look at his eyes shows how tired he is. But does that mean we don't have five minutes for a quick shave? The world is not going come down if we spend 5 extra minutes in front of the mirror enjoying our handsome faces and also mowed down the growing facial hair.

I have nothing against beard as long as you treat like a garden. Water it, tend it and prune it. If you do that, it becomes a style symbol especially if you have to walk into a room full of people for closing a deal or even presenting your work.

    People are so busy these days that they tend to put off many things for later! But, an extra 5 minutes investment can result in a better personality! :)

    1. That is what we overlook always. We think it takes a lot of time but it takes very less time it seems! I have been on lazy mode before.
