…after all, being busy doesn’t mean being productive…

“Evaluate what you are doing, why you are doing it, and where accomplishing it will take you, if you don’t have a good answer, then stop” _ Ryan Holiday

Let the results of your hard work speak for themselves. If you change your activity-driven day to a purpose-driven one you will most definitely see greater results.

Ask yourself why, start there then gradually evaluate your daily activities and where your energy is spent. One thing is certain, wherever you focus your energy and time, there your life will flow also, in that very same direction. It can’t be in any other way – the results of your work are the product of the activities you spend your day on. So, focus on things you really believe are the right ones for you, on those tasks you believe will help you to achieve you life-given dreams.

Stop stacking shelves! All routine work/job are being gradually taken by AI machines or robots, mechanical or intellectual, they will be gone soon… No time to waist on them.

What will bring you joy?! What work will make you fill fulfilled? STOP AND EVALUATE! Nobody gets tired from working, we get exhausted from meaningless work, from the things we do, yet we see no purpose in them.

It takes courage to change, think of it as creative changes. You can use the creative wells inside of you. We all have it, even though we do not see it, it might be capped or buried but it is there. so dig it up and let it flow. Use your creative power as an agent for changes in your life!

If you see yourself too busy and unfulfilled #stop and ask yourself #why you do the things you do the way you do them. How could you be doing them differently? Or, how could you change your work?

Do not take on one step further without stopping and evaluating! Changes happens in one single moment… When we make a decision

Time is so prescious to get waisted on activities that brings us no joy or fulfilment.

We live most of our lives in the working environment, our lives are spent in working activities, so let’s make it worthwhile.

As Seneca have told us – Good work nourishes the noble mind!

Our minds are the commanding centre of our beings, a bad one will not make us happy or heathy, think about it…

On the future of work…

A few years ago I’ve watched a Gary Vee talk about how hustling and grit allied to today’s socio-technologies could help one to achieve anything one dreamt of.

“There is now excuse in 2009 for you to do s#&t you do not like” Gary Vaynerchuk

At the event he only added (in his own words) one ‘should stop watching f*&#ing ‘Lost’. Yes, that’s old right? Lost’s gone, but now we have Netflix and Amazon Prime! I guess what he meant was: stop waisting your time. We’ve got way too many distractions and entertainment.

Tic-tac-tic-tac…I’ve written that on my bedroom mirror, it is the first thing I see when I get up. It is just a note to self that time is short and running out. Time is the only thing we can never get back.

We have no time to lose! But most of the activities in our modern society is designed and packed for us to leave us in a contant numbing state, dorment and alienated from reality. They are incredibly well-thought through and created to distract us or to impede us from reaching our destination, our full potential, to achieve our life-given dreams.

Which bring us to the theme of this blog: the future of our work!

Time is our most prescious commodity in a age where every bit of technological advancement is moving faster than our skills, abilities and human capacity for change and absorption. That goes the same for our workplace and professional careers.

Let me ask you this question: Is your career future-proof?

If you are not preparing yourself for upcoming future changes within your workplace and sector you might be heading for a pitiful disappointment. Some of these changes are already here and creeping in without you seeing or perceiving them.

In a recent TED talk Dorie Clark stated that 20 to 30 percent of adult professional in Europe are either in freelance or independent working contract and the trend is on the raise.

Watch the video below and make your own judgement and conclusions. Above all, I urge you to conduct your own piece of research and start working on yourself and your skills.

Learn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. If you work hard on your job you can make a living, but if you work hard on yourself you’ll make a fortune.” Jim Rohn

The only way to survive these changes and workplace transformation is to develop a life-long learning attitude and character.

There’s no value in keep blaming technology, AI, robotics, Sylicon Valley, Google etc… As Jordan Peterson mentions in his book 12 Rules for life “if the world you are seeing is not the world you want, therefore it is time to examine your values…It might be even the time to sacrifice what you love best, so that you can become who you might become, instead of staying who your are”

Eliminate every ounce of distraction and focus on what you want to achieve. Whenever possible help others on the way…
