Long-term Productivity: The Best Way to Guarantee Good Jobs
Work for tomorrow’s work. This is something I wish I could teach my younger self, or force my younger self to do, and is by far the best way to get the better jobs.
There have been a number of times when I felt ‘job’s done, move on’. When in reality, there was still follow-up that could have, which meant it should have, been done. There were too many times where I was going for productivity, trying to see how much I could earn in a certain amount of time. What rubbish. What’s really important is doing the job for tomorrow, for your next job. Putting the pride in your work so that you build a reputation that gets you more, better work in the future. Not short-term productivity. Long-term productivity.
In most cases, the follow up is the more important work, the more valuable work, because it shows your attitude, and your real love for doing the job in the first place. This is true not only for others seeing you do it, but for yourself as well. People pay for the extra love. If you love something, show us, do the follow up work and take pride in it as you do so. Focus on the long-term productivity and you can truly deserve the better jobs.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
