Many constantly complain about the long work hours, workplace culture, organisation politics, etc. People on the other hemisphere brag about enjoyable their job is.
Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO often repeats to his employees and new hires
You can work hard, smart and long. In Amazon you cannot choose 2 out of 3.
Workplace culture is not a set of policies. Rather its the company’s leaders. People look upto their leaders and follow what they practice. They mimic their leaders. And that becomes the culture.
If a CEO/founder drives the team crazy, it will percolate down to the last employee. The better survives while the weakest looks for another opportunity.
And if the same leader cares about his company and employees, then that becomes the cosy environment to work.
Rightly said Don’t pick a job. Pick a boss
Too many choices exhaust us, make us unhappy and result sometimes in not making a decision all together. Decision paralysis is one of the major factor for procrastination and stress.
Even if we chose one, we are mostly less satisfied for one of the below reasons.
Researcher Barry Schwartz in his book “The Paradox of choice” mentions “As the number of options increases, the costs, in time and effort, of gathering the information needed to make a good choice also increase. The level of certainty people have about their choice decreases. And the anticipation that they will regret their choice increases.
With more options to choose from, we become mentally tired and the principle of least effort kicks in where we make the decision based on the easiest option/factor available.
