The value of time

An article in today's Straits Times, Recruit column illustrates this point. A sales girl is quoted as saying that some of her colleagues would lunch where they can get the cheapest meal even though it may be far away. But this sales girl doesn't mind spending 50 cents to a dollar more, if she can save 20 to 30 minutes of walking time, so that she get back faster to serve customers- and make more sales.

This is the kind of staff who will progress well in her job.
