How Will We Work After the Coronavirus Pandemic?
You feel it right?
Something is changing but we can not name it clearly.
“Change” is always scary. “The unknown” is a stress-friendly word.
But we are going to live this anyway.
So, let’s talk about how business life will change after the coronavirus pandemic.
The Business Side After the Coronavirus Pandemic
The idea of “remote working” was a nightmare for many businesses in the beginning of the Coronavirus pandemic. The employers were scared that the employees will not “really” work from their home. Bosses generally see employees as “naturel procrastinators”. For them, when we find any chance of procrastination, we do procrastinate “wildly”. This might be true for some employees, but being a good leader is all about finding the right people to work with. So this topic is complicated.
Things are changing nowadays. Big companies started to see that with a good “control system”, people can really work from home and “costs” are much lower this way. Now it’s clear that their biggest enemy -procrastination- is not related to the location of the employees. Actually, employers now started to think like they no longer need these employees who are working for them for years. Any person, who has the right skill set can do “the job” in front of a “damn” computer. The Internet was invented in the early 80’s! After 40 years of “experience”, bosses are now happy to find a new type of slavery: Location independent slavery!
So, yes, this is bad news for the employee side since people are much more replaceable after this point. But there is also a bright side in this. Let’s talk about us (the people) now.
The People Side After the Coronavirus Pandemic
Remote work was always a dream for many people. It somehow falsely resonated with financial independence. We always wanted to work independently but always found it risky.
There was another problem. People always saw themselves as “naturel procrastinators”. So, the bosses were right in away. The common belief was: “when we find any chance of procrastination, we tend to procrastinate wildly!”. But being financially independent is all about mastering self-discipline… So, this topic is also complicated.
The word “remote” was also resonating with the word “temporary” for us. Who will pay the bills when the “temporary” work is gone? This was another issue…
Things are changing nowadays. After the coronavirus pandemic, millions started to see that with the right mindset and self discipline, they can really work from home (for a company or for themselves) and “work stress” is much lower this way if they really get paid. Our closest friend -procrastination- is now our biggest enemy. Actually, if people can beat procrastination, they no longer need “bosses” who are bullying them for years. Any person, who can build the right skill set, can make money in front of a “damn” computer. The Internet was invented in the early 80’s! After 40 years of “experience”, employees are happy to escape from the office slavery. Now people are going to live the location independent lifestyle!
But things will change drastically again. Even the employers will be “unemployed”. Now, let’s talk about the future of work! To learn what will really happen to “us”, read the article below:
