Who Are You Working For: Group Question

No Comments

After the most recent blog post, I think it is a good question to ask you folks.  What are activities we spend time working on someone else’s behalf?  I will ask you to answer that question.  There are probably activities we do every day that we should avoid doing because they enrich others while leaving us tired and less well off.

Please take some time to discuss an activity from your life or the life of others you’ve observed that qualifies as work and doesn’t enrich you either financially, physically, emotionally or spiritually.  Keep these definitions in mind as you work this activity.

·         Work is defined as anything you do that you find unpleasant

·         The activity does not enrich you financially, physically, emotionally or spiritually.  (For example, I personally find exercising unpleasant, but it does physically and emotionally enrich me when I do it, so this would not qualify.)

·         Describe who, if anyone, is being enriched.

·         Provide some potential work-arounds or solutions to avoid doing this unrewarding work.

I whole-heartedly believe in free trade.  Free trade is built upon a fair exchange of value for value.  But when you exchange your value (either the value of your time or your efforts) for lesser value or worse–negative value, you are allowing yourself to be taken advantage of.  It is made all the worse by the fact that we unwittingly spend too much of our time doing this work and not realizing we are doing it or doing it because our society considers it part of life.  I reject that notion!  I encourage you to work differently.
