Whether You Know It Or Not: Employment Is Much Like Self-Employment
by Robert Moskowitz


With all the talk of downsizing, flattening hierarchies, and internal "customers," the plain truth is that holding a job today is not very different from being self-employed. In place of wage and salary guarantees, employees -- like entrepreneurs -- now earn their keep by focusing on initiative, cost-effectiveness, and results. Here's how:

Initiative:

As an employee, you might wait to be told what to do. But in today's demanding work environment, the "self-employed" approach means you must assess situations and find useful things to do before your manager gets around to telling you about them.

Obvious situations requiring your attention include problems, production bottlenecks, and opportunities to improve procedures and mission-critical results.

Cost-Effectiveness:

As an employee, you might not squeeze every bit of value from every resource you use. But with economic pressure increasing all the time, the "self-employed" attitude helps you pay close attention to every resource.

Try hard not to waste and squander any expense, any hour of your time, or any opportunity. This will automatically increase your cost-effectiveness, even if you don't produce anything extra.

Results:

As an employee, your pay doesn't always reflect how effective your work, or your organization, may be. But with a "self-employed" approach, you constantly strive to maximize the importance of your contribution to your organization's mission and goals.

For example, focus on the value of the work you produce: How much is there? And how much is it worth to your organization? By monitoring the value of your contribution amid changing business requirements and fluctuating economic conditions, you will know immediately when and how to modify and/or increase your on-the-job efforts.
