What are Workpieces?
Day 357 of Des McCabe's Personal Development Exercises
Over the last thirty years
we have moved from Lifelong jobs
to Portfolio working to Workpieces.
Our Workpieces are the way that
we use our time. We do freelancing, we
sell online, we create and make, we have
part-time jobs, and we do ad-hoc work.
Some of our workpieces pay us money
and some don’t - like minding our kids,
home-schooling, helping others,
or looking after an elderly relative.
But everything that we do is a workpiece,
including social media, watching sport
or the latest box set! They are all the ways
we use our time, at whatever age we are,
and whatever our situation.
Workpieces are proactive rather than
just reactive. They call on us to
unleash our skills, experience, knowledge
and passions to explore and be more.
To do what we really want to do.
Homeworking has now taken us out of
the office. Couples manage their workpieces
and income based on their needs and plans.
Individually and collectively, we are
taking more control of all that we do.
As our lives change and develop, we need
to constantly re-evaluate and re-balance
our workpieces as best we can,
not just for income, but as the framework
of our overall health, wellbeing and
life development strategy.
Our workpieces can help us to achieve and
become all that is important to us.
