Be skillful in performance

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says with all these various aspects, the karyakarta has to do  his work  in such a way that would enhance the organisational objectives. But it all requires skillful handling. He says : There is need of competency or skill in behaviour in each and every task that we do.
When a life worker of Vivekananda Kendra goes to his field of work, he has to be properly equipped. We teach major items, but minor details of vital importance are sometimes neglected. The success of an individual depends much on these small matters as well. A person may be intellectually well-equipped, but if he is deficient in other qualities, success evades him. He may possess dedication, sacrifice, renunciation etc. but for want of practical knowledge he proves to be a failure. His competence depends on this knowledge. He has to deal with men and matters, but if his temperamental make-up is inadequate, then he has to repent. This tact or skill in behaviour is termed as Yogah Karmasu Kaushalam (B.G.XI-50). Skill in performance of actions, is Yoga. For want of this skill, every effort is a waste.
