Work AND Story

Most of the time we do the work. The work is our initiative and our reactions and our responses and our output. The work is the decisions we make and the people we hire.The work is what people talk about, because it’s what we experience. In other words, the work tells a story.

But what if you haven’t figured out a story yet?

Then the work is random. Then the story is confused or bland or indifferent and it doesn’t spread.

On the other hand, if you decide what the story is, you can do work that matches the story. Your decisions will match the story. The story will become true because you’re living it.

While the advice may end up being similar, each firm lives a story in who they hire, how they present themselves, etc.

The story creates the work and the work creates the story.

    Ganga,
    I liked the statement, The story creates the work and the work creates the story.
    So meaningful!

    What you have penned down is something we forget in the monotonous work atmosphere. Yes, all firms build stories. Sometimes these stories turn into epics too! Sometimes there are new stories in these legacy epics! And that leads to questions, confusions, doubts and what not! Its interesting to be part of such stories, if you come to think of it. 🙂
