    Boss asking me to take interest in poetry

    I am working in a government organisation. Our boss is highly fond of poetry . He not only reads poetry books but also writes some lines himself. Recently he told me to start taking interest in poetry as it is a very good thing. I could not refuse him at that time so I just nodded.But I have never been into such creative things from the beginning. How to please my boss in this matter?

    As it is not your cup of tea it is not necessary that as your boss has said you must have to do it.

    Because poetry not a thing that any body can do without having an interest in it.

    You did the right thing by nodding in front of your boss at that time.

    If you want to learn such things and if you can take out time for such things than it is definitely an interesting thing to do.

    It also improves your language, your vocabulary and your presentation skills which will definitely help you in other things also.

    But if you don't thing that you can do, don't waste time just to please your boss because the most important thing for which you are there is your job.

    It must always be the main priority for you.

    Hi aspirant

    You should not be so afraid of this as it is not something which will afect your career. Your boss just told you so as he himself is so interested in poetry that he will tell every second person to follow the same. But this does not mean that he is taking your test or forcing you to develop your interest in poetry. But if you really want to please your boss, despite you having no interest in creative things , then its certainly wishful thinking on your part.

    You can try to read a poetry book or two and then when your boss asks you about it the next time you can impress him by saying that you tried to read a book or two and that it was very interesting indeed. He certainly has a very god hobby. You can even recite one or two lines if you remeber them or atleast tell him the name of the poem and the poet. I am sure that he will be glad that you are taking interest in poetry just because of him.

    In this way he will even become more fond of you. good luck and thanks

    dear friend
    this is your wish that to taKe interest in poetry or not
    your boss cant force you to take interest
    your are working under him
    this means that you are working and he is paying you for that work
    i'm sure he'll not give you extra pay for this
    if he gives then this is better thing too earn more...

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is good to know that your boss wants you to follow his path for reading & writing poetry.There are so many fields,subjects etc to work & do for a human beings.But all individuals can not do all types of works.Some may be writer,poet,engineer,doctor,manager,IAS,IPS,teache rs etc.Of course it is true that all can read any book & any thing,but not interestingly.

    So when your boss wants you to take interest in reading & writing poetry & when you are not capable of it,you can say the same thing to your boss that " I tried my level best to take interest in reading & writing poetry,but I am unable to get success in it." So kindly don't mind for it.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Dear there is no problem if you have agreed with your boss and accepted their argument and if you have never been in such type of activities then there is no problem because when your boss suggested you to do so then you need to ask for help from you boss because only they can help you in this matter and first of all you should go to your boss and tell them that sir it's great that you write poetries but as you know that I have never write any type of poetry myself so I am worried about this and only you can help me out in this problem and sir when you write then you should suggest me that where to start and how to include myself in this area and how to gain interest in poetries and how to write and how so that your boss will support you and they will give your ideas and way that how to make interest in this field and they will also tell you that how to start thinking like a poet

    If you are interested in reading poetries then it may help you but you should not forget to read news papers, comics, magazines etc. because these are very helpful things for a poet that support for better in this field so that first of all you should make your interest in reading various type of books then start making poetries

    All the best

    no doubt that you are stuck but there is always a way out from any such situation. you can let your boss know that yes you have started taking interest in poetry but you are definitely not getting the hang of it as much as your boss does , and ask him for tips on how to increase the interest and constantly provide you with certain poetry till u become interested enough. this ways you will be saved the trouble of letting your boss down and will not have to look for yourself as exclusive matter might be provided by him. also if in the process you start liking poetry then well and good and if u don't you can say you gave it your best shot and it is just not your cup of tea with your boss himself being the perfect alibi . either ways you are safe enough . hope this works best of luck

    Hello,

    If you don't like poetry then how come your boss force you to like the subject. The time has come to
    tell your boss politely that dislike in poetry. Every individual has his or her own interest in different
    subjects and that very quality has made them unique. So you should not be afraid of your boss and
    tell him the truth.

    Bye,

    Hello Aspirant,

    The interest of a individual with a subject varies from person to person.Some is fond in talking of politics,others may be fond of watching movie.Like wise your boss is fond of reading poetry.Naturally he would like have a accompany like you.But when you are not interested in poetry,it is not possible to accompany him in this regard.So you need not worry for this.

    You may convince your boss by saying that " I tried my level best to take interest in reading & writing poetry,but It is not possible for me to success in this matter".So I feel very much sorrow for my failure in this regard.I apologize for my nodding to accompany you in this regard.

    Thanks.

    hello friend

    as you nodded your head infront of your boss,it doesn't means that you will start writing poetry because this is not the thing that you can start without interest at a time.

    you did just to please your boss and nothing else.

    you can only give him company and encourge him in writing poetry.

    in this way you can make your boss pleased and you will also get chance to know about the poetry.

    poetry is very good thing, writing this is very good profession.in this way you can develop your writing skills,punctuation and presentation skills etc.poetry sometimes refreshes us through this we present our feelings and views also we can present in a indirect way.

    all the best
    thank you.

    Re: Boss asking me to take interest in poetry

    Hi,

    Your boss likes poetry and he has asked you to write. It is absolutely fine anyone who writes asks the other person also to write. Your boss has done the same. You must be having very good relation with your boss. So he has asked you to write and told you about his likes.

    It does not matter you write only best poem to please your boss. Even if you write few lines he will be happy and think that you took his advice. So any time you are free try to something. Only four lines are enough in the beginning.

    Here are tips to write a poem-

    Choose a topic like flower , your wife, bike or anything you like.

    You can also write on love , friendship , anger, any behavior.

    Then try to write about it.

    Make it rhyming or not it will do.

    Writing poems will increase your language skills. It will help you every where . It is good to learn new things in life.

    All the best

    You can't always be and so scared of the following as it is not really a little something that will afect the career. Your supervisor merely informed you as a way this individual himself is very serious about finery in which he can convey to every single subsequent individual for you to follow the same. Yet i am not saying that he's using the examination or requiring you to definitely create the interest in poetry. In case you desperately want to thrill your boss, in spite of anyone having no interest in imaginative things , after that it is undoubtedly wishful thinking in your part.

    You can consider to learn some sort of finery ebook or not one but two as well as when you do your boss requires anyone regarding it when you may wow him through praoclaiming that anyone attemptedto read the sunday paper or not one but two knowning that it was quite interesting indeed. He undoubtedly carries a pretty our god hobby. You can also recite 1 or 2 wrinkles for those who remeber these people or atleast tell him the specific poetry plus the poet. Almost certainly in which he'll be glad in which you are taking interest in finery even though regarding him.
    It's great to know your supervisor wants anyone to follow his route with & composing poetry.There are a multitude of fields,subjects and so forth to figure & perform regarding an individual's beings.But all of individuals can't do all kinds of works.Some may very well be writer,poet,engineer,health care provider,boss,IAS,IPS,teache urs etc.Of training course it is true that can see just about any ebook & anything,although not interestingly.

    So if your boss wants you to definitely be interested within reading through & composing finery & when you are not really capable of it,anyone can say the same thing for a supervisor in which " I could my levels far better to be interested within reading through & composing finery,nevertheless My business is not capable to have good results within it." And so kindly will not thoughts regarding it.

    If you are searching for reading through poetries then it may help you nevertheless you shouldn't neglect to learn media reports, math comic strips, periodicals etc. because they are extremely handy things for a poet in which help regarding superior in this field so that first of all you really should build your interest in reading through a variety of style of guides after that begin to make poetries.

    If your time permits then try to listen to the boss and if you feel inconvinient with this matter then try to convince the boss by saying that he is being busy with some family problems and not finding time to think of all those issues , but be polite in your saying to the boss and explain whole matter as decent as possible.Definately your problem gets solved.
