If you slacked at your job, your company would say you’re stealing because they are paying you to work.
YET they have no problem asking you to do things when they’re not paying you. Take phone calls, read employee manuals, fill out paperwork, stuff like that.
They are stealing your most valuable asset - TIME!
Luckily where I work now is not like that. But I’ve had plenty of jobs where this type of “extra-curricular” activity was expected.
At the time, I didn’t value my time as much. So it was no big deal. But now I am literally busy every minute - or try to be. Every second I spend doing things I’m not paid for is a second I can’t spend doing something that helps me achieve my goals.
So what’s this rant all about….
If you don’t have the luxury of being a full time entrepreneur, then you probably have a J.O.B.
Employers are notorious for asking you to do “just a little bit more” than you are paid to do. Thus taking up your time.
But to be a success, you have to value your time. You have to put in time to achieve your goals.
You should resist getting taken advantage of at work. Fight it.
Try to make them understand that a job is simply a place you trade an agreed upon amount of time for an agreed upon amount of money.
If you give more time, they give more money. It’s that simple.
