Most people hates me immediate after they have ready my book; Why I
Hate Being An Employee when they you should understand that, in my
writings inside the book I’m not trying to imply that if you are an
employee, you’re some sort of a complete competent fool who is incapable
of earning better treatment — I’m not. However, there are somethings
going on here that would be worthy examining.
A brutally honest look at your life is key
Maybe you’ll decide you’re willing to deal with having a boss for
eight hours a day and that your fulfillment will come from working on
your personal projects on the side. On the other hand, maybe you’ll
decide that you’ll forego a steady pay check, do odd jobs, and
drastically lower your standard of living to fundraise your start-up.
What I want to tell you is that, there are bunch of different
combination of options to take and still make a lot of money, but all
with their own consequences. The key is to take a brutally honest look
at what’s important to you and what’s not, and what trade-offs you’re
willing to live with, and understanding that, each choice means not
choosing something else … whether it’s money, security, a boss, absolute
autonomy, or something else entirely.
I am not a bad person, I am a bad employee
If you are a bad employee, it doesn’t mean that, you are a bad
person. In fact, don’t be ashamed into believing there is something
wrong with you. The main reason why I say that is because being a bad
employee doesn’t necessarily mean you are a bad person and that, you may
just be in the wrong place. You will know you are at the wrong place,
if you work hard throughout the day, but at the end of the day you
wonder if what you’ve done really made all that much of a difference.
You work hard but don’t feel like you get the recognition that you
deserve. You work tirelessly but it rarely feels like you accomplish
much of anything. Or else, If your task list is endless and you often
feel overwhelmed, in your life you will have to think of turning things
around. And if that is you, I have good news because; the world is
waiting for your unique contribution. Start today! For example;
Self-publish a book, sell it on getvalueinc.com or else make better
soaps and sell them to any marketplace that fits your product out there.
Your customers are waiting your products.
This isn’t a get out of your day job ticket
There has never been a better time to get into the game of business
but also, this isn’t a get out of your day job ticket. In fact, if you
take on the freelance or entrepreneur route, be ready to work harder
than you are used to. That is why if you are smart enough you’ll keep
that crummy day job until the market begins to reward your uniqueness.
And one day you will look back on this moment as just the moment you
chose a path, you either gave up dreaming and became a good employee, or
decided to go after what you want – a point of no return.
This isn’t right or wrong, it’s just the truth about me
We are all stuck right in the middle of a dying, antiquated work
model and an economic revolution that is changing the world. The reason
why I said “I am not a bad person, I am just a bad employee” is because;
This isn’t right or wrong, it’s just the truth about me. I’m very bad
at taking orders from anyone, much less, if I feel the person giving
such orders is less capable than I am in a particular issue as Jim Rohm
used to say, I’d rather “take advice, but not a direct order.” In my
opinion, I would rather quit jobs that so many people would love to
have, simply because of this. Moreover, if you continue asking me why, I
don’t have a great argument for my stand either! I wish I could cite a
study, research or even an antidote story to cure how I feel. All I can
say is that, for me; being a bad employee isn’t right or wrong; it’s
just the truth about me.
It results in promotion and a slow increasing salary
One of the reasons why I hate being an employee is that, I’m not a
fan of positional ranks! In fact, I really don’t care how long you have
stay in one job position before you can move to other high ranked job
positions, nor have I ever judged a quality leader by the amount of time
they have put into a project. If you think that the amount of time
spent is a reflection of quality, you should walk out of my way because,
what I know is that, the marketplace doesn’t reward time it rewards quality, effectiveness, efficiency and value.
Most importantly, if you don’t know, staying in the same job position
doing the same thing over and over almost never results in these traits.
Rather, it results in a promotion and a slow increasing salary.
***Don’t switch jobs; start your own business ***
My advice to everyone I meet is don’t switch jobs; start your own
business. But first, to make sure you don’t revert back to being an
employee you will have to know and understand how Power, Control, Leverage, Productivity, Money and Freedom
can work against you when you are an employee. This is why the rest of
this book will concentrate of me introducing you to these six concepts,
what are they, why they are important, and most importantly how being an
employee can make them work against you and probably sabotages your
level of success in business and life in general. It
is my belief that, when you are fully aware of how these core concepts
can work against you when you are an employee, then just like me, you
might change your perspective and start your own business. And that is
what this book is all about.
