Good morning and Welcome!
I was fortunate to get a good night's sleep (about 4 hours). The good restful sleep is an amazing regenerating gift. I thank God for it! May I receive that gift again and again!
I'm thinking about time and money today as I prepare to go to work.
Time has greater value because time is your life running out. Wise use of time is very important and by wise, I mean productive. Money simply circulates. it moves from hand to hand as we use it as a marker for trade.
Most days all people "go to work" for those who don't "go to work" some work is usually or should be performed as that is the way of our lives. We "go to work" to earn the money we need to purchase things we need or want. At this point a work conscious decision must be made and that is am I being fair? If you are being compensated, are you being fair and giving the performance that is being paid for? If you are paying for a service or product are you paying fairly for your expectation? Is the person being fairly compensated for their time AND their mental activity? If you are working with someone, are you doing your fair share of the work?
I was imagining that I would share with two of my colleagues that I can't be expected to think for them. They need to think for themselves. I share that because on a per hour basis, they earn more than I do. In fact on a per hour basis, I don't earn very much. Yet it may be that I am expected not only to give my time....which is my life but my very ability to think as well. If I spend so much time problem solving for others, then that "burns" my mental energy too fast. God gives each of us the ability to think for ourselves. We should use that ability to be successful. Using someone else's brain to accomplish your work in life is not fair....this is not a fair value.
Money is given to compensate us for our time. More money is given to compensate us for our creativity and our ability to think and resolve problems creatively. I always find myself in a position where no matter how many team members there are...I am thinking for them in terms of their approach to their job. Very often I will even perform their job because it takes less of my time to translate what I am thinking into their performance. Usually I don't offer much resistance. However I had an unpleasant experience over the weekend and realized that it was due to my having to take responsibility for a decision that someone else should have made.
So today, as I consider our team meeting, I am going to find a way to ask my colleagues to take full responsibility for their work...including...the thinking component. We are all trying to be productive and to earn what we need to take care of ourselves. Fairness is very important to our collective success.
warm waves of universal love and light,
