TO BE PRODUCTIVE YOU NEED TO USE THE SWORD OF LEADERSHIP MASTERFULLY
You know what the company wants right? I mean, you know the one thing, apart from the HR bullshit of please everyone and stay nice, the one thing they want from you regardless of how pretty you make it, how much people like you, how dirty you are. You know what they want and you know when. If you don’t – stop reading. Yr in serious bipolar shit. But if you do, then you know that anything you do that doesn’t achieve the one thing they’re going to measure you by at the end of the day, you’re wasting valuable time and lowering your worth, both to them and you. The other part of this, is you must know what you want. If you want kisses and someone licking your butt, telling you how they are going to, one day, promote you, then the workplace might not be the best environment for that. Companies make fake promises, implied or not, because they want you to give them $2,000,000 worth of you and pay you $1 for it. The whole system is corrupt but as long as you know it you can play it. Irrespective of what they want, you gotta know what you want. If it’s a dollar or two to pay for your mortgage and grandma’s funeral, that’s ok, no one is going to say right or not, you simply have to own it and stop with the rhetoric that you want satisfaction from your work. That’s the equivalent to sucking a lemon dry and then sucking some more. Only your cheeks will hurt. There are some things you need to know. The first is companies are built to make a profit. All the blah blah about caring about you, your family and health is smoke. They are there to suck you dry and just want you there long enough to suck everything. Stupid people think otherwise and die with a frown, still worried. The second thing is you don’t have to work hard. Hard work is bad management and the person who links hard work to good life is seriously stuck in the 50’s. Old school. Finally, you will not lose your job if you play the game. So, now with this out of the way lets talk productivity…
#1. TURN UP AND TAKE EMOTION OUT
There is nothing more pathetic than a sad person turning up to work hoping the company and colleagues will make them happy. I live in Bondi, I watch the same people come past my door on a tinder date at 2am heading off for their banking or Deloitte job at 8am. And then, they blame the company or leader because it’s not good enough. They clean up for a job interview for a week, get paid more and new job, then tinder past my door and vomit on my footpath at 1am and go to work at 8am. If you speak to these guys (meaning all gender or none) they recon it’s the system that’s fucked up, not them. And if you’re reading this, you’re their boss. You can’t drop into that dirty bog. Instead you go gratitude walk, smooch the cat, kiss the dog, count your blessings, get healthy, love your love and go to work to fucking work. Not suck the lemon dry. Turning up means you go to work full. You are full every morning. You don’t need your partner to validate you nor the business. You are master of your life.
A Master in the art of Living
Draws no sharp distinction
Between their work and their play
Their labour and their leisure
Their minds and their bodies
Their education or their recreation.
They hardly know which is which.
They simply pursue their vision
They are doing and leave
Others to determine
Whether they are working or playing.
To themselves, it always seems
As if they are doing both.
#2. BE ABSOLUTELY
For 40 years I’ve worked to help people double their REM each 2-3 years. It’s really really easy. Simple. Be so damn happy, centred, calm and balanced doing what you do, that others just can’t wait to work with you. You simply “GET PLUCKED” – and it’s spectacular how correlated your PLUCKABILITY and the call from the head hunter are. Too many hunt, hunt jobs hunt escapes. The employee you want working for you says no to the head hunter because your offer isn’t as good as their current love, job. This is the hidden formula to success. LOVE IT BEFORE YOU LEAVE IT.
