The Universe of Workology

The Universe of Workology

I cannot claim to know everything in the universe of workology. But after starting work at the age of 17 and worked almost continuously  (barring a few short breaks for full time studies), for the last 34 years I do have a perspective. And, I do not hesitate to share it when the need arises. Recently, someone approached me to mentor her about the salaries, levels and what is required to progress. I narrowed down the answer to the last question to two critical factors – skills and dedication. If you have the skills, and you apply them with dedication, no employer would want to let go of you. Within reason they will be willing to pay much higher than to someone else you fell short on either of these two counts. To discuss the levels and remunerations I drew the above rough picture showing 9 levels and commensurate daily remuneration. Whether you are in the corporate hierarchy, or in corresponding consulting hierarchy, everyone has to find their own level on a totem pole, and this may serve as a rough guideline.

  • Well, I didn’t get your point on this topic but here is what I learned from my recent search :
    Things don’t always go the way we want or expect. It just seems to be the nature of the universe and, of course, it rarely makes sense at the time or, even, ever.

    We all know someone who has been diagnosed with and either lived with or died with a devastating disease. A few years ago, the daughter of a friend of mine, a young mom herself, passed away after battling brain cancer for a couple years, leaving three small children. The ravages of disease are all around us. It does not matter how well off you are or how perfectly you live your life. Sometimes, it creeps in your back door and takes hold of the most precious…[]

  • Workology concept always success if we do anything with dedication and honesty but somewhere we should consider another factor of success is our network, social environment etc. Sometime we should aware by new opportunities. Luck is also a factor if we do work with dedication.
