A sense of achievement

A sense of achievement

Post by Waffle on Sun May 21, 2017 12:31 pm

One of the great things about waking up is developing skills to question our day to day lives. The time we have in our general day to day lives is mostly taken up by wirk. In business for motivational purposes, keeping people interested in their mundane operations a company may introduce a strategy that gives people a sense of achievement, such as employee of the month.

It is a bizarre concept because 9 times out of 10 there is little gain in it for the "achiever" maybe a £20 bonus for working 10 times harder than the other employees who some of which would actually have also used their game. Another view for it is the increase increase of productivity, or more commitment from staff, but the aim is to always give this sense of achievement for the participating, so ultimately its just a psychological strategy used to benefit an organisation.

Why am I making this statement?

Today we walked past a local leisure centre that had a kids sports event. A range of ages 7-12 all competing in a triathlon. This appears to me to be an open event, to a better degree all are free to enter (within some broad guidelines). Why do we of all ages feel the need to participate in these events, wether they are organised or not. Why are we from a your age encouraged, in fact in some instances forced to participate in athletic or sporting events that have some health benefits, but are ultimately about winning, gaining that sense of achievement. A small medal and a blown up ego is ultimately the goal for a for someone, wether they know it or not Everything is commerce right, but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Why does the system encourage this type of event from a very young age? In its simplest form is it all based on psychological training?

We go through life as a servant that psychologically feels like we may or may not be achieving something. Trained to have a competitive nature from a young age, and that insignificant rewards are a great result to be proud of. Yes as we get older some may be "higher achievers" earning a bigger lump salary with land or property that passes to our successors if they can afford the inheritance tax. But for the general population there is very little we actually gain and lots gained by the governors.

One of the, if not the most valuable aspect the system uses is motivation. Motivation is focused on the way people behave why they do the things they do and how it can be influenced to change that behaviour or get them to do what they want them to. The system has people so brainwashed it barley needs to lift a finger to motivate people into doing what it wants us to do, fuck we simply do it all for it.

A dangers yet very powerful tool, all they need need is a platform to neuro linguistically programme a population of people to motivate them into feeling a sense of achievement. If they don't respond the way they want them to then they use alternative tactics to induce the behaviour they want to attain. Intrinsic extrinsic punishments and rewards = MOTIVATION........

And to enhance the financial side of things by going out and buying the bling that many dont want or never use, but of course its all financial, and someone makes a profit from it.

My pet hate is the team building, this was popular with middle management and those wanting promotion were "expected" to attend if they wanted promotion, and many did, but its all about continual assessment in your own time, and ritual humiliation for those perceived as weak.

Lets put this into context, what does abseiling down a mountain prove in your occupation? nothing, but it shows any observers that you are willing to push, and follow orders, and anyone who will push themselves and follow orders is a benefit to any company and of course they are a willing scapegoat if they are caught out. Lamb to the senior managements slaughter when it goes tits up.

We had team building exercises at a place I worked. I was nearing my way out the door anyway, but didn't attend two and had crappy jobs for a week or so. Temporarily demoted for not giving them more of "my" time so they could asses how much of a benefit I could be. I gave them the middle finger and it felt good.
