Think about others before you do something

Different kinds of people look at the same situation with different attitudes.


Some people are conscientious in the way they take their responsibility, others never are. But some people concentrate on their work so much that they may ignore or even hurt others.


We should all take our work seriously, but we must think about others at the same time.


For example, if a student wants to ask the teacher to give the class extra homework, they should first ask their classmates if they want it or not. This is a kind of respect. So next time, try not to rush into your work - stop to think about others.


YEUNG LING-FAI


STFA Tam Pak Yu College Thanks for your letter, Ling-fai. It's very good of you to think about other people. Many of us forget about others and have this 'It's all about me' attitude.


When we do something, we should always think about how it would affect others. We should take other people's feelings into consideration. This is especially true when you are doing a class or team project. Decisions should be made by discussions so that everyone's needs are taken care of.


Keep up the good attitude!


Helen, Chief Sub-Editor
