This is how millenials work.
The real smart working skills you need to know.
Bla Bla Bla
Let's shout every 2nd day, that we are innovative and know, how business works, maybe we will get a new assignment then.
We think we do smart work, because we make home office, have an IPad and use Evernote.
You all know this daily posting-overkill of bullshit phrases, we are all used to since about 5 years, when this madness started with Future of Work, Millenials, Generation XYZ discussions and now in 2017 what happened ?
Do we work smart ?
Did we kill our old habits and workflows ?
Don't you reply to ALL in an eMail ? Is it better now ?
Hm, I am not sure about this and think we remain static in real change and active in posting and talking how it works, without living it.
"Future of work is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it..."
Yes, I am sick of all this boring postings here on LinkedIn without living it, what all the dreamers suggest, how it works, but sometimes also without experience and thinking about, if all this work visions makes sense.
It feels a bit like Angela Merkel knows, whats good for the Germans..., but this is another discussion.
In post-truth times everything is possible and you can claim everything as long you put it in a smart layout and make the infantry believe, that this is good for them.
I believe future of work begins within smart people, who know their profession by experience and are able to make an agile switch by checking new tools and workflows by themselves, because they are smart enough to understand the lacks of their daily business, but on the other side, this fast turnaround and changes you just can do as an entrepreneur not as employee in a fortune 500 Titanic.
Hm, yes, I know, difficult topic. :-(
So, why to be a missionary among sheep who just want to eat their gras ?
It's a waste of time, if people are dump and have no time for a change to round wheels (like in this cartoon) and going on to use their square wheels. Let them use them. Don't be a missionary, but a silent smart worker in future.
Just do it, should be the mantra of the next years for everybody, instead of spreading our opinions without listening and transforming. I think at the moment everybody wants to be a boss telling people what and how to do it, but no one acts like a mentor, who just does it by own example.
This all leads me to the idea, that we should all just do our work smart and if you are successful in the end people will buy your book and make a movie about your live or ask you, how it works, but not the other way round.
I think we are now on the peak of this Future of Work bla-bla, because German and Austrian governments talk about it, so it's always time to create the next big thing, if things get ordinary. Real nerds are always early adopters, think of the history of the Austin Powers Nerd Glasses(Mike Myers) 20 years ago, which became now accessoires of the butchers shop assistant and everybody, but without the right attitude.
The right DNA and attitude is everything in company cultures, and also concerning smart work and authenticity.
So happy turnaround, from shouting ordinary topics to a silent, but smart just do it way.
