  1. 1. Our LIFE TODAY (& Careers today?!) <ul><li>Most of our careers (till today), have succeeded(?!) around THIS HARD & BITTER FACT – </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We are experts of routine, & to some extent “rote”…. Anything which we do over and over again everyday for a lifetime can only be rote. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be it writing codes, making ppts, making sales or just whatever… </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And in this, some of us get better & better to the point that we are labeled ‘excellent’ professionals! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The skills differential between normal and excellent is just a few percentiles ! ( Did we realize this in all our excellence?) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  2. 2. And the outcome.. in our Life… in careers today! <ul><li>In a routine skilled job, with skill differentials so easy to replicate, careers have to be routines for Life… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>with hours and hours of taxing and stressing hard-work, all in the name of ‘excellence’?! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>with the ability to mass produce the skill to the need of an organization or a client being a big determinant of ‘compensation’ </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And increased ‘compensation’ is the end result of delivering more, a little – that few percentile points more – better than a handful of peers! </li></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Life.. and where we go this way!? <ul><li>A majority of the jobs that exist revolve around this ‘concept’ of work… to excel just means, you master the rote… master the routine. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Some quick examples… sales pro’s, programming, recruitment, production and so many…. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The others which proffer an intangible, BUT creative input to the organization, the product or service are a little exempted from the rote! {In such roles, creativity and subsequent ability to ape creativity with tweaks become a determinant} </li></ul></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Life.. With this concept of ‘work’…?! <ul><li>With this concept of work in the forefront, you get paid for the routine, and how much you can ‘mass produce’ the results, in lesser time, faster than the others? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But the skill differential is so minimal , that the only way you can get excellent is to do the routine ‘rote for long hours, more than your peer, and a little better! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>That means you earn more, only by being ‘there’ more, and ‘doing’ more! </li></ul></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Life.. With this concept of ‘work’…?! <ul><li>These ‘mores’ at work essentially mean a ‘less’ for you personally (BUT for the money, may be!) </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Less for YOU, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR HOME… and everything to do with YOU </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>And the routine also means that YOU have little time for self-improving (minus off course becoming a master of the routine, making you excel at the work – the particular work you do, NOW) </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Life …?! <ul><li>WOULD A BETTER WAY BE TO DO LESS AND GAIN MORE. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>WHICH MEANS YOU MAY HAVE TO CUT THE ROTE ROUTINE AND SO SOMETHING OF MORE VALUE? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>AND HAVE MORE TIME FOR LIFE? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>AND IN A WAY HAVE MORE LIFE?? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ MORE LIFE” </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. MORE ‘LIFE’ TO LIFE <ul><li>YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE WHO CAN DO THIS! </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Look through what you do today at work! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Does that really put to work your mental faculties, or just works up your lizard mentality? </li></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Cut through all the present, and see if you are being YOU…. For all the talent and unique skills you may have… ONLY YOU HAVE </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul>
  8. 8. MORE LIFE <ul><li>DO you see how you are doing the ‘rote’? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Think, Think, it’s a challenge, but THINK </li></ul></ul><ul><li>What do you want to do about the change you want to see today and NOW? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO BE TODAY AND NOW! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>BEGIN NOW TO CHANGE </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>AND BE YOU! </li></ul></ul>
