Three career strategies
We often do not think about our career as a strategy and we let life, randomness and luck to define them. Consequently, we see the work quite often in a negative light.
An employee is not a slave
Jacob Morgan looks from the perspective of the employee and how the organisations make us feel during the working hours. He observed that it is not going the way it should and that even dictionaries indicate the synonym of the word ’employee’ as a cog, servant or even a slave. Moreover, if you lookup for the word ‘manager’ in the dictionary you will find synonyms like salve-driver, boss or zookeeper. Furthermore, if you look at the word ‘work’ in the dictionary synonyms include daily grind, drudgery or struggle.
Picturing the reality of a significant percentage of workforce Jacob combined the synonyms together to “We are all cogs, working for a zookeeper, as we go about our drudgery.” Our way of think about work is outdated. It is literally ingrained in our culture and it is even how we talk about work.
We need to realise that in reality there is no such thing as job security. The only security that exists is the security that you create yourself.
Today work blends with life and life blend with work. We spend so much time working that if our work side is not well, it impacts our life in general. Three strategies that allow to shape work and create a better personal life.
