Hyper work is a new term that is coming out recently due to the changes took place during the recent years when workers recognized the importance of self-care, mental health, and enjoying life. Some workers are back to the offices and do not mind to spend all the working hours at the office away from the home. Meanwhile, the other half of the workers are looking for a balanced life style, where they would have the freedom to work remotely (whatever that remotely means to them). Some of these workers are willing to quit their jobs even if they are making 6 figures salary. They just prefer to have a better mental health, and enjoy life more with less stress.
All these changes, in addition to the explosion of the technology (including social media platforms) that created other income streams; require a new working environment and protocol for working, and seek different setting for different types of jobs.
I believe we need to look at the type of the job, keep improving the work environment including the schedule flexibility, the skills of the workers and consider to adapt a completely new approach to the carrier and job market.
Is this period about the job revolution? Could be. However, we do need more research, more experts and more leaders who care about evolving both human beings and economic system.
Words are not only a communication tool, but also explain how skillful you are.
The author suggests to replace a few words in order to show that you are in control of your business. For example, avoid saying “I can’t”, “I don’t have time” or “it is not my job” or “I do not know”. Give a specific date instead of saying “soon”.
Whether you agree with the author or not, I believe one should always walk the extra miles for the customer and should always care about acquiring new skills that strength the business.
Nowadays everything is running so fast, so why don’t we achieve success faster? Everyone had been rushing to achieve success faster and accordingly spent tons of money buying different untrusted tools such as programs, or online courses from unqualified people, which make the selling people rich. Ironic, right?
However, the road to success is really clear according to the author of the attached article. He claimed that one needs only 3 things to achieve success quickly: focus only on your work, forget the past, and use the new available resources such as the social media.
Would you agree with this? Do you think that these issues will take you to success faster?
If you are suffering from the overload work and responsibilities, then you need to take care of yourself and set some boundaries and start to say No.
This is basically the advice you are given if you complain about your mental, emotional and even physical health, while you are running around to please everyone around you and neglecting yourself.
Take care of yourself… But how? Especially if you are a woman with a family and business to take care of.
So setting up boundaries and saying No, is the most repeated advice for taking care of yourself. From my point of view, I found it hard to say No. But it never came to my mind what this attached article highlights. It stresses the difference between askers and Guessers. It basically advices that we should distinguish between the asker (who is asking but does not expect a yes answer), and a Guesser (who expects a YES answer).
Does this makes it easier to say NO? Well it does help me out though.
