This month in Time magazine there was a great piece on the workplace of the future. No briefcases, no bosses, no office (except maybe at
your house or your local Starbucks), and no career ladder. Wow, this sounds great – where do I sign up? On the flipside there will be no benefits, no job security, no company retirement, and no place to hide. I knew it sounded too good to be true.
Will these trends be bad or good? Will they create constant change pressures or endless opportunities? Will they provide you with more freedom or will you be a prisoner to your own workaholic ways?
The answers to these questions depend on whether you’re currently sinking, floating or swimming. Do you have the habits and strategies to be energized? Is your gas tank full, ½ full, or empty? Have you trained your resilience and expanded your capacity? Is your brain functioning at full potential? If you have the right Sustainable High Performance habits the world will be your new workplace and you will enjoy as much success as you want. If you don’t – you better get started.
