Cupcake Quotes: Productivity

18 Nov

Cupcake Comic Strip

I hope you are not expecting me to leave cupcakes lying around. It is not my style. 🙂

Anyway, the Singapore Government is advocating for businesses to increase their productivity so as to reduce the businesses’ dependence on foreign talent. For the overall big picture, increasing productivity is a good thing for the economy, the businesses and the consumers.

But what does productivity mean to an employee?

Increasing productivity would probably require changes to be made by the employee. Tasks that an employee is used to doing and doing well may no longer be relevant. On the other hand, the employee would need to learn skills to cope with the new tasks to stay productive. The extreme would be some employees would be let go from jobs that are no longer relevant. While others who are adaptable to changes would be able to tap in the opportunities created from the new job functions.

So I’m jotting down these two points in this post to remind myself how to survive in this pro-productivity era. They are to remain flexible to changes and to create new value continuously. Failing either, I may be the one that is left behind.

    I think the root is that at some point we have to say enough.
    We cannot have all the money we want, all the toys we want etc. We must live with our world, not eat it and end up homeless.
    Only when there is no more left to buy will we wake up and realise you cannot eat money.

      Haha money is somehow going to be a topic I cover soon. Not with cupcakes though. Stay tuned!
