Where Did I Go Wrong? The 4 Stages of Working Success
Who Works Harder?
Name Placement Hierarchical Chart
There are four levels of personal success in a working life;
1) You have your name on your shirt.
2) You have your name on your desk.
3) You have your name on your office door.
4) You have your name on your building.
Now, if your name is on your building, then it's probably on your desk and door as well, and that doesn't count as a trifecta! And if you're a cheap son of a bitch, it's probably on your shirt too! Those with their names on their shirts are most likely to work longer, harder hours and those with their names on their buildings work longer, easier hours. Okay, everyone works longer hours, but the higher up on the name-placement chart that you find yourself, the easier the work becomes, because you've got all the people from ranks 1, 2 and 3 under you doing your bidding.
Those with their names on their buildings also have a lot further to fall in bad times, and can't just go to job interviews stating that they owned a successful company and had their own office building, yet lost everything and now is hoping to get an entry-level post at McDonald's.
Those with their names on their shirts are more likely to land on their feet after being laid off due to their interpersonal and job-related skills.
Sometimes it pays to be on the bottom (and, not only during sex either!).
The Wealthy Blogger; A Myth?
With Millions of Bloggers, Are Any of Them Wealthy?
The truly wealthy don't blog, they have underlings who do it for them. There are successful bloggers and there are successful writers, but barely do you see a successful, professional writer blog who doesn't have to as part of their job description.
Why is that?
People blog for two main reasons'
1) To make money
2) To get their message out.
Those who fall into the first category find out rather quickly that it takes a lot of time, patience, social networking and begging in order to become successful (read; to earn more than a couple of dollars a week).
Those who fall into the second category, however, have more platitude in what they can write' they aren't so worried about pissing off the boss (they have none) nor their followers (they don't need the pennies that a thousand followers garners). And, they don't have to blog so they can write whatever they want, or just have underlings do it for them and trust that what is written is good for them. Sometimes, being wealthy means being stupid, because wealth breeds laziness..
