When we accept a paycheck, we are agreeing that:
- We are trading the application of our skills for an income
- Therefore, we deliver the job how the employer wants it done
- We don’t have any reason to whine or complain when obstacles arise. Overcoming obstacles is the task for which we get paid.
- We don’t have permission to be critical of the leaders above us. We are not enslaved. We have full freedom to choose to work elsewhere.
If you don’t like that system, go start your own business and become responsible for your own income. Perhaps you will discover some gratitude and understanding for those who do.
Thanks for listening.
