Value of doing nothing !
Post date: Jul 15, 2016 8:38:19 PM
Everybody feels they are underpaid!
… but then you always see someone whom everybody thinks they get paid for doing nothing, no productivity, no significant contribution! It depends on how we define productivity, but I am sure you will agree that there is always someone about whom we feel they get paid for doing nothing.
So what do they think about it?
They start to find value and meaning in doing nothing. So …say if you are paying x to someone for just sitting all day, productive or not, they start to believe that there is something special about their sitting, and their sitting all day is more valuable than x! We converge the value of our work to more than what we get paid. Always. So if you see such people around, never say that they get paid for doing nothing. …because they have started believing that their ‘not doing anything’ is more valuable than what they are getting paid. :)
