Human beings are some of nature’s most gifted long distance hunters. In hunting tribes which hunt on foot, people in the tribe from the oldest to the youngest all outdistance the animals to catch their prey. Now, this is true for many different tribes the world over, and notice that we did not say that they outrun the animals. Rather, they outdistance them. By merely having more stamina than the animals, they are able to run them into the ground, quite literally.
Humans are known for being able to run strong and run long, in both a literal sense and a figurative sense.
They have far reaching talent in both stamina and non-stop endurance testing, and this translates into superb outdistancing hunting skills. We’re not even talking about using long distance rifles or anything like that. This is just a form of wearing the animal down.
As we look at what we are willing to endure in the workplace, we see some similarities with these foot hunting tribes. We see that we are willing to work overtime if we can get double or triple paid overtime. We see that we are willing to work labor intense jobs if it guarantees a certain lack of politics and a high paycheck. When it comes to bringing home the bacon, we are ready and willing to run long and run strong.
However, much of this is destroyed when we have coworkers who toke up during their lunch break or bring alcohol to drink during their break periods. Their sheer laziness doesn’t only annoy us, it makes us lose faith in our long term financial goals and plans. It makes us dread going to work and being around these types of people. You are attempting to be a money magnet, but their behavior is degrading and disrespectful.
Protect your employees from being around these kinds of workers by using CMM Technology’s drug test equipment and alcohol breathalyser tests in your drug testing program. We even have a breathalyser recalibration service which is accredited by NATA. All of this is meant to bring your business in line, not only with its own company policies, but with your company’s financial goals, too: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

It is sometimes easier to be a leader when you are weak than when you are strong. Why is this the case? It usually happens when someone is normally an outcast or someone who blends into the background easily and just does what they are told…until they have to come out of their own comfort zone.
It is this comfort zone which inspires people to rest and rejuvenate, but once that has been accomplished, it is the weakness outside of the comfort zone which turns that rest and rejuvenation into productive energy and something worth looking at.
When you are downtrodden and have given up hope, when your life is a mess and things are all going wrong, and when you feel weak and helpless, remember that it may be because you are still inside of your comfort zone long after your rest was complete. Now you must go out into the real world or into whatever area of your life which is making you feel weak at the moment, and you must get good at what you want to achieve. The only way to do that is to be weak and to practice being weak until you can graduate to a slightly stronger level.
CMM Technology provides drug test equipment, including urine drug tests like our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6. We know that your business may not be full of people who take their own weakness as a challenge to practice their skills over and over again. We know that you may want to screen your employees, because some of them have been quite a bit lacking in reliability lately. Onsite drug testing is part of this screening process, only more convenient than regular laboratory testing, and with our drug test kits, you will be well on your way to properly testing your employees.
And when you, yourself are feeling weak, remember that leaders can truly lead from both positions, from both strength and weakness. That is the mark of a well developed leader. Therefore, take initiative have your workers tested with drug test equipment from CMM Technology, and give us a call today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
