A middleman! Do I call on him or not to do my work?
August 24, 2017
Jobs are evolving and there is a need of specific knowledge to have some kind of work done. Information and communication technologies made easy to equip working tools with computer systems. They contribute to the development of other sectors of activity. Companies in international logistics use systems to handle a massive amount of collected data and information.
It is possible that we witness the fact that some jobs are progressively disappearing because of computerization. In the other hand, some new jobs are appearing according to “creative destruction” of Joseph Schumpeter.
Knowing that fact, do you call on a middleman to do the work you would find difficult to do?
Yes, I call on a middleman
For many reasons, we often call on a middleman if we know nothing or a little about the work to do. These reasons may have to do with:
- Many activities: we have priorities and we would like to focus on what we can do better.
- The quality: All of us love a well-done work and we say to ourselves that someone else will do it better than us.
- The lack of time: we really don’t have time to handle it. Time is money!
- The work is difficult: It is too complicated and we would never make it.
- And so on.
All we need to make sure is that the one who will do the work has to know very well his job. He may also be a professional but what is essential is not to regret the choice of the one who will replace you in doing the work.
No, I don’t call on a middleman
There are people who like to face challenges and we hear them sometimes saying: “I will try, I don’t know if I will make it but I will try anyway”.
Those people take all their time to gather information about the work to do. They learn continuously and during this journey, they make mistakes but they don’t give up. “Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall”.
Whether they succeed or not in doing the so-called work, it is important for them to adapt to any changes as possible as they can. They acquire knowledge and skills that the job market needs.
Those people know, not only how to learn from their mistakes but also how to proceed in order to do what they really want to do.
