Conducting business and brushing our teeth should be regarded as the same situation. Often we get very tired of the whole office situation, and we either pile up our details and try to put them off until next week, or we push our subordinates to sort out the messiness. This approach comes from a sense of no delight and heedlessness. There is a need for lots of hard work. We should take delight in cleaning up our offices.
