These days you don’t often hear the question, what do you spend your time doing? For many it’s especially relevant due to disillusionment with politics. We’ll talk about it in Organic Work Builds Future-Business Networking-Bob Davis Podcast 778.
Whipsaw Politics Is Exhausting
I like the term Organic Work. I think it applies to our time and to our whipsaw politics. Many of the people I know are sick of it all. Moreover they hail from all parts of the supposed ‘political spectrum‘.
All Is Not Well In American Business
I have come to the conclusion that all is not well in business in America. There are many things that don’t work as well as we think they do. In addition I believe among the armies of workers and managers at some of our big companies, there are many who don’t do much of anything.
In Our Blood?
We’re taught that capitalism and democracy are ‘in our blood’ as Americans. I submit that democracy and capitalism take work to create, and work to hang on to. I don’t think it’s anyone’s birthright. It isn’t ‘in our blood’.
Work versus Politics
If you think about it we’re building the future in the present. How are we doing? Finally over the years I have exhorted people to ‘get involved in politics if you don’t like it’. For some ‘politics’ has become their ‘work’. Have they made a difference? My questions about the effect of that involvement is most noteworthy in this podcast.
In conclusion my work is the business of podcasting. There are some lessons in this podcast about podcasting. More importantly in the last year I have learned a lot of lessons about life through business networking. Thanksgiving kicks off a season of family and reflection. It’s also a good time to reflect on our work, and the nature of work.
