Be a biological human…a HR message

Does biology fails to psychology? Certainly, yes will the answer.  Every human being live two separate phases of life viz.,


  1. Biological
  2. Psychological


The biological life always point towards the future while the psychological life always peeps into, pine at and lost in the past. 


Look at a heard of herbivorous animals or pride/pack of some carnivores.  The old and weak animals are largely neglected by the members.  The old and weak ones have to fend themselves or have to accept the fate and became prey to different predatory animals.  This is all about biology of life. 


Whenever one loss their relevance, meaning and significance have to disappear from the scene and that is law of biology.  Such disappearances sometime would happen in a graceful manner or in a cruel manner, nature doesn’t really bother.   The ‘biology’ of life always focused on the future and nothing else.   Yesterday and yesteryears have no role or significance or meaning in biology.


Whereas all most all animals including man invest a lot in parental care/caring the young ones.  The behaviour of altruism, fierce fights etc., the animals like even a small mouse or rat also exhibit during parenting only because they value the future a lot than the past.  This is what is all about biology or biological life.  


Whereas the psychological life is concerned, it largely focused on the past.  Always it downloads the data from the past memory and stare, glare and pine at them.  Psychology never allows man or any other animal to be free in the present or think/strategize about future.    More often it appears as ‘our memory’.  Only the memory of the past even makes the animals to be alert, fearful, angry etc.


In corporate, how do people live?  Do they lead a biological life or psychological life?  All the materialistic aspects of our life including that of all animals are predominantly kindled by ‘biology’ (for biological needs) and the so called non materialistic aspects of life including ones memory and thoughts are controlled largely by ‘psychology’. 


The paradox is that the psychology exists only in the capsule of biology but unfortunately the biology has least power or strength to control or manage the ‘psychology’ of own.   That is why, in spite of having all luxury, many people live a miserable life.  Despite having enormous experience, knowledge, leadership qualities, creativity, many people in most corporate live in utter misery and fear.  Only because of the above, many people accept things the way they are than attempts to change/question them. 


Once this paradox is understood well, people can find ways to deal or manage them.  If they fail, with or without luxury, security, creativity, capability, life will be dull and filled with melancholy.
