It’s probably one of the most common phrases you hear at work: It’s all about training you.
Every junior office worker has a voice in his heart, from time to time in the ear: I always want to harm the people.
Why does the almighty need more work, the most capable of more work is built on the basis of more work. For example, if a person’s individual ability is outstanding, he can accomplish more targets or better performance per unit of time, then he can produce higher value for the group if he can put in as much labor as possible. But, on the other hand, because he puts in more work, he should get more reward. In the end, those who can do more, those who can do more, and those who can do more should support each other.
But there is a backlash in the workplace against the idea that it’s all about the best. For example, why does a person with strong ability have to work more for the same salary? This violates the principle of more work, more reward. What’s more, it is very difficult to be perfect in any work. The more work you do, the more mistakes you make, and if you make no mistakes, the negative impression will be left on the outside world. As a result, even those who are capable of completing more work do not want to prove themselves by doing too much work.
Finally, the more you do, the more responsibility you have, and the more responsibility you have, the more authority you should have. But it’s much easier to find yourself in a situation where you have most of the responsibility but little authority.
Is this the wrong argument to make in today’s workplace, given that there is so much of a reaction to the overachiever?
In fact, it is not. Today, the three words of the most capable, the most rewarding and the most capable are still supportive of each other, but you need to calm down and discover it.
There is a kind of more work called more work, more energy.
There’s nothing wrong with the conventional wisdom that more work means more money for more work, but as a beginner, you can get a lot more than that. In the workplace, there is something called doing more, doing more, doing more.
For example, the leader needs you to make a cool presentation for an exhibition with Keynote, but you have never used Keynote since you were only able to use PPT. What should you do? Do you want to say with the leadership, SORRY leadership I will not use this software.
Some friends may think that there is no problem, tell the truth, and then go to learn? Ask yourselves, will you really go home and study hard? People are lazy, 90% of them just go back and look at the data, find it too complicated, forget it in a few days. The skills you want to learn are like those powerpoint photos that lie in your phone album when you attend a lecture as a student. From the moment you take the picture, you will only see each other again when you clean the album.
Therefore, in order to break their own inertia, the most effective way to learn in the workplace is to learn more. In other words, by taking on unfamiliar tasks, you force yourself to learn and empower yourself to master a new skill. With so many specialized skills, are you afraid that you won’t be able to find a high-paying job?
Keep in mind, however, that there is a time dimension to this approach, and don’t take over skills that take a long time to learn when things are really urgent. Otherwise, things will fail, and you will have no chance to learn again.
What you get is not necessarily short-term pay, but future opportunities.
In addition to your current achievements and rewards in the workplace, you should also consider your future prospects and development. New workers in many industries are already worrying about a mid-life crisis, as they fear being fired in their thirties. Instead of worrying every day now, why not prepare when you’re young?
If you were a leader, what kind of people would you choose to promote? The most competent? More compliant? Something more appealing? No matter what aspect, it is a reflection of personal ability, so how can you let your leader know your ability? Of course, the usual work is one way, but in daily work, there are not many opportunities to win the absolute recognition of the leader only by work achievements, and you need to reflect more from other aspects.
For example, if you are a hard worker, you often volunteer to work late into the night. Because of your long and hard work, the company’s performance has improved, and you will leave an impression of diligence in the boss’s mind. For example, on the premise of completing your own work, you are always willing to help other colleagues, driving the work efficiency of the whole team, and winning a good reputation in the company. Then your good reputation will not be known to the boss? This kind of thing often exists in the workplace. Although you don’t get any actual reward for your extra work, you actually get implicit reward such as recognition from your boss. Then you will have more opportunities in the future.
Therefore, in today’s era, the ability to work more, work more, have the ability to live is still support each other, complement each other. It may not be rewarded immediately, but in the long run, it is conducive to their experience accumulation and future development.
