The New Paradigm Of Work

One of the major revolutions in thought that has taken place in the world of work in the past few years is the idea that you must justify your position anew every day.

It used to be that a person would work hard for a few years until he had achieved a certain level in his job. He could then coast along at that level for many years, if not for the rest of his career. His attitude was, "Well, I've paid my dues. I earned my position. I did a great job. Now I am entitled to this job indefinitely."

But this is no longer good enough. Today, everybody wants to know, "What have you accomplished lately?" In the fast-moving, highly competitive business world of today, your boss wants to know what you have done to add value recently. You have already been paid for what you did last year, last month, and even last week. Now you must earn and justify your paycheck anew. There is a race on and you are in it, whether you know it or not.
