This is Natchi Lazarus. And this blog is about ‘Work’!
We all work. Whether you are a student, teacher, employee, employer, diplomat, politician, preacher, mom or an astronaut… we ALL work!
Work has become such an integral part of our lives, that it almost goes unnoticed (like an invisible force) all the time. Have you ever woken up one morning and rushed to the mirror to see if your nose is still there?! No… you know subconsciously that it is RIGHT there…. ALL the time! That’s what Work is for many of us… an undeniable, non-negligible and an extremely necessary ACTIVITY that is ALWAYS around!!
But understanding Work is crucial for our success in life. Most of us will agree with a research report which says that people spend more than 70% of their time, when they are awake, at their Workplace. My personal average used to be much higher than that. But now it seems to get better (and closer to 70%)… Well… you should ask my wife!!
Work decides where we live, what we wear, who we marry, what we eat… and everything… well, almost everything… but no doubt that our entire lifestyle depends on our WORK. The more our economies grow, the taller the sky scrapers get, the faster our internet connections become, the longer our credit card statements grow, understanding Work and Workplace concepts becomes more and more important.
This BLOG is going to be a tool for me to share some thoughts on this subject. After a lot of research on “WORK – As a key human activity“, I have some interesting findings that I would love to share with all of you.
Since 2004 I have been discussing with, debating, facilitating, teaching, coaching, consulting and training business leaders, NGOs, students, corporate employees, business owners and Govt Officials about WORK & WORKPLACE concepts. In 2006, under the banner “Word@Work”, I started exploring deeper truths about work. And I have learnt quite a bit (but as any good learner knows, “I have miles to go…”!).
I believe that sharing knowledge is like sowing a seed. The more you sow, the more you reap. If you say, “No, I want to keep the seeds with me”, then you will have no harvest.
Right here, I will try to share all that I know about this subject and I hope that this will help YOU become a better WORKER!
Great having you in this space. Thanks for taking the time! Feel free to comment.
