Asked to Work or Just Work

Have you ever wondered if you are asked to work or you just work. This is with reference to a workplace. There is a subtle difference between the two.

Asked to Work

Is there a Manager constantly trying to figure out what you need to be working on. It may also be that you are asking people around what you should be working on. If the answer is yes, then you are being Asked to Work. It means the managers running your company  hasn’t communicated the plan or worse don’t have a plan. IMO it’s recipe for disaster.

In a good company employees should have a pretty good idea what they are going to accomplish in next few days and weeks. Beyond few weeks is too much to ask; bare minimum you should know what you need to accomplish in a week.

Just Work

This is just the opposite. Work is so well defined that you simply Work. There is no one pressuring you to work. In fact you Love to work.  You just know the right questions to ask your team members / manager and simply work. You exactly know how to extract your piece of work from Work-Jar and simply rock and roll. I call that Work Nirvana 🙂

Let me know if you are Asked to Work or you Just Work.
