‘My Job Is Very, Very Different From Your Job’
Nice read brought to my attention by Daniel Palmer.
It’s dangerous to compare any corporate atmosphere to that of another industry. I work in finance. The regulations/atmosphere, etc. are nothing like what someone who teaches school for a living would face. Neither is inherently better or more difficult than the other, but not every aspect of either is relatable to the other. The challenge lies in identifying what makes a successful workplace.
As Connor Barwin points out here, a successful NFL team is one whose lockerroom is run by disciplined leadership.
Per Barwin: the key to fitting in is 1. Being able to play at the NFL level and 2. Wanting to be a part of the TEAM.
Interesting perspective, worth a read.
