Fixing the ‘I Hate Work’ Blues

Fixing the ‘I Hate Work’ Blues | For Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship Students | Scoop.it

The New York Times ran a troubling story, "Why You Hate Work," in last week's "Sunday Review." The article indicated that employees work too hard and find little meaning from their work. The anecdotes we all hear about this topic are reinforced by the Gallup Poll, which shows that only 30 percent of employees are engaged in their work.

 

The issues raised are ones I have worked on for many years. With the drive for higher productivity in the workplace, there is little doubt that people are putting in longer hours than they did two or three decades ago. In part, this drive comes from never-ending, short-term pressures of the stock market. An even greater factor is the global nature of competition today, which pits American organizations directly against counterparts in Asia, where work days are long and onerous.

Many employees report they are overworked and not engaged—a recent New York Times article on the phenomenon was titled, Why You Hate Work. The problem, says Bill George , is that the way we design work stifles engagement. Here's the fix.

Embrace criticism!

Philip Powel Smith's curator insight, July 29, 2014 8:04 AM

Criticism is always a difficult pro-active action that educators have to give. Criticism without ridicule and shame is what students need to hear and an explanation of how to make the changes to be better learners and communicators.

Free Resume Templates To Bet Better Job Opportunities

Free Resume Templates To Bet Better Job Opportunities | For Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship Students | Scoop.it

Free resume templates are required by every professional and novice as well. Job opportunity is the thing which must be grabbed by the contender in right time.

 

Resumes or curriculum vitaes are the symbol of self-branding. Your resume reflects your personality, so you should be careful about choosing a perfect resume template. Your resume must bright up your skills and it must be able to catch sympathy of your employer or client.

The Secret To Creativity, Intelligence, And Scientific Thinking

The Secret To Creativity, Intelligence, And Scientific Thinking | For Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship Students | Scoop.it

The image is from cartoonist Hugh MacLeod, who came up with such a brilliant way to express a concept that’s often not that easy to grasp.

 

The image makes a clear point—that knowledge alone is not useful unless we can make connections between what we know. Whether you use the terms “knowledge” and “experience” to explain the difference or not, the concept itself is sound.

 

Lots of great writers, artists and scientists have talked about the importance of collecting ideas and bits of knowledge from the world around us, and making connections between those dots to fuel creative thinking and new ideas.

What’s Next for the Chinese Economy? MIT Sloan

What’s Next for the Chinese Economy? MIT Sloan | For Business, Economics and Entrepreneurship Students | Scoop.it

Since China began its economic reforms in 1978, its economy has grown substantially.  If China slows down due to the fact that it has become rich, this is cause for celebration rather than concern. But herein lies the problem: The reasons behind China’s likely slowdown are not only because it has become a richer country. Other factors likely to impede China’s growth include the highly unbalanced structure of the Chinese economy and low levels of efficiency; despite more than three decades of reforms, China is still substantially statist in its basic orientation.

Many small business owners don't see themselves as entrepreneurs, but If they are to grow and develop their businesses, they need to think and at times act as entrepreneurs.


When a small business owner opens themselves up to considering themselves as being entrepreneurial, they also open the doors to taking on advice aimed at entrepreneurs, advice they may previously have ignored.


This excellent article, written by an experienced successful entrepreneur, offers 17 tips any small business owner can take on board and apply to help their business to grow successfully.

many good tips in there, but for me
# 3 as feedback, nothing more
# 12 for being productive instead of busy
#16 for the sense of purpose that will carry you through...

are the ones that usually require more  "work"
