Last year, during my fitness transformation exercise, my coach Ajay (who also happens to be a colleague) gave me the best gift ever
A Nike dryfit tee, size medium
It sticks to your body. Showing all your contours.
I called it The embarrassment tee
“Wear it everyday to the gym. Your bulges will show, that extra mass that needs to be worked upon. You should feel embarrassed”
Because then, you have two choices
The easy path
The right path
When you say sorry to the customer, you wear the embarrassment tee
When you apologize on behalf of someone, you wear the embarrassment tee
When you tell employees that we fucked up, you wear the embarrassment tee
When you own up to who you really are, with your mistakes, your shortcomings, but determined to work hard to overcome them
You wear the embarrassment tee
And that is any day better than wearing a loose fit tee of an awesome expensive brand.
