If you asked your friend “How is the work life going on?” Most frequent reply will be “Well, The bills get paid every month”. In general, Monday, the first day of the week is looked upon with disdain, disheartenment or with a general lack of enthusiasm. So much so that countless memes pop up days before to remind that “OMG! Tomorrow is Monday”.

But there will be instances when you come across people who will be enthusiastic and will reply with a bright smile saying ‘I love my job!’ These people are viewed as exceptionally lucky, the ones who have won the employment lottery ticket. This is not true in every aspect, with time things are changing and with the fast moving life there is a lot of imbalances taking place.

Let’s get one thing straight there is no work-life balance and things are not working out as it should, people are so busy and insecured of being fired that it eats up there time resulting in no other activities e.g. yoga,  running or any other physical task. People who don’t even work late hours still have this problem because they are mentally tired and don’t have that motivation to do other activities after work. The ultimate goal for most of us after work is to go back home and just relax.

Have you ever wondered why one feels tensed in office, heart rate going up, & getting tensed about the next decision to be made? This is because there is feeling of insecurity, that you can’t trust your colleagues as you think they might take credit for your work, another reason can be not getting the approval of your boss or other dangers within in the company that is making you feel unsafe. This might cause stress and serious health problem in the long run. One of the most common symptom seen on a daily basis is people get burned out very easily and utterly exhausted because they spend too much energy being anxious and in fear of failure or getting fired.

 


 

Quote From: Why Leaders eat last

“The true price of leadership is the willingness to place the needs of others above your own. Great leaders truly care about those they are privileged to lead and understand that the true cost of the leadership privilege comes at the expense of self-interest.”

It all depends on the work environment that our leaders set up that are influencing the way we work and how safe we feel. If the leader doesn’t care about what happens to you as long as their work is done, their goals are achieved and would sooner sacrifice you for their numbers then its is very easy not to feel safe and a part of the company.

Quote From: Why Leaders eat last

“Truly human leadership protects an organization from the internal rivalries that can shatter a culture. When we have to protect ourselves from each other, the whole organization suffers. But when trust and cooperation thrive internally, we pull together and the organization grows stronger as a result.” Sinek, Simon (2014, Jan 21)


 

Simon Sinek has a message for the leaders of today “Have empathy, be brave and put the concerns of your people before your numbers, show them that you truly care and you will gain their loyalty and they will give you their blood sweat and tears”

 

To my fellow millennials I want to say, there are billions of people in the world and everyone is fighting their own troubles and problem. If we can give a helping hand and provide the slightest of help then world will be a better place to live in.


 

I leave you with a last quote from Simon Sinek.

Quote From: Why Leaders eat last

 “And when a leader embraces their responsibility to care for people instead of caring for numbers, then people will follow, solve problems and see to it that that leader’s vision comes to life the right way, a stable way and not the expedient way.” Sinek, Simon (2014, Jan 21)
