    #4 Thanks for such detailed responses.i believe it would require a multi-dimensional change in thinking. Hope that can triggered as a natural response or cultured into people.

    c) the nature of the gig economy should help stabilize the variability you mention by reducing the reliance of the provider on one skill or service offering. For example, I have businesses that provide HR Consulting, Virtual Reality experiences and tools to help kids with ADHD and other emotional issues. As one area declines, I have the ability to move my efforts to the other two.

    d) this is a great question and one I've tried to tackle most of my career. Unfortunately, one of two things typically happens with those types of folks. 1) they are over utilized and start to suffer from burnout. They tend to be the person you go to all the time, no matter what the issue, because you know they can get things done. 2) the organization either hasn't figured out that the employee is quite versatile, or they haven't figured out how to best use that versatility. In this case, we often find the employee job hopping in order to feel challenged.

    I wish I had a good answer for this one, but in the end it comes down to the skill/interest of the leaders in the organization and their willingness to let employees out of their "box". Those types of leaders are few and far between!

    b) if the just-in-time talent hired doesn't perform well, I believe you would know that before project completion by monitoring milestones. Your expectations of such talent tend to be higher and your interest in measuring their on-going progress stronger. Think about this in terms of you cutting your grass versus hiring someone else to cut your grass! When you cut it, you're not so concerned about the spots you missed. When you hire someone else to do it, you look at the job in a much more critical manner. :-)

    Part of what you're seeing in my blog is my bias towards the effectiveness of most performance programs. They do tend to be retrospective, and therefore not effective. For permanent employees, I've actually developed a method of continuous performance that significantly reduces the retrospective nature of such reviews. For those in the gig economy, the review of their performance comes more in line with the timing of the service delivery, and it tends to be more honest in nature.

    Great comments! I'll add my two cents...
    a) From an employer's perspective, I would think that being able to target spend to just-in-time talent would be a welcome alternative to trying to find busy work for someone under utilized. From my experience, employers tend to under hire because they don't want to pay the higher cost for a permanent person who is more experienced, and they are afraid that they can't keep the more experienced person engaged.

    Demand driven sourcing and compensation?

    4 questions come to mind.

    a) we earn to spend and save/invest to tackle uncertainities. At present, material costs are volatile, if human costs become volatile too , how much uncertainity would exist across thw market?

    b) performance can only be gauged retrospectively. So performers can fail and those not in demand could have succeeded..today options for paid professions or gig type engagements both exist. Why foregoe the choice?

    c) Even the enterprising try to secure some stability alongwith the variable.. whether in time, money or effort. How would you structure some Gig options?

    d) Every organisation has certain people who can multitask and get the entire cycle done. In a Gig economy, how would one define the engagement of a jack of all but king of none?

    On a different note. Enjoyed the read. You made me curious about something very elementary that just seemed to slip by until.now
    And i enjoyed the buzz. Thanks.

    There is no reason to fear or hate LinkedIn, it's the biggest candidates database tool in the world, with 11 minutes daily time use per user in average and only 90 or 110 million monthly active users over 430 M+, with recruiting tools for HR professional and raw material targets for lead generator in sales, what a better free tool and per subscription platform for B2B? Now, what does the future of social networks keeps ahead of us, who knows? In the mean time use all the tools at your disposal, and follow closely the evolution of beBee that @Javier 🐝 beBee 's team will release this Autumn!
    We all have high expectations! So we will wait patiently.
    No need to grow bigger at this stage of maturity, it has to be collaborative and business specific like personal branding for example, but we need tools to make deliverables to clients. That is to be money wise. Personal branding cannot remain an expensive hobby, it has to go PRO!

    This is a great Buzz by @Javier 🐝 beBee. This is also why I feel when if anyone has a business or something that they want to brand, they should themselves as the brand image. When someone is going from platform to platform, and see your content, the prospect will get to know your face more and more and more.
    For example, if I am browser a platform quickly at night, instead of looking for topics, I am looking for faces. I know that these people have great content on whichever platform I am on. I don't even bother reading the title, subject, or looking at the image of the article. I saw the author's face.
    This is another reason to be careful what you share, what you comment, and so far. I may disagree with something in the world, but I don't always share everything in my heart to the world. A friend once told this, Before you take action in anything, are you doing it to make yourself "FEEL GOOD", or "DO GOOD".

    #4 Yes, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, many people I know find that to be especially prevalent in American companies, but I've witnessed it in others as well. I've worked for small businesses and large international corporations and that mentality of driving people into the ground is a leadership issue that is sometimes supported by cultural values. I worked for a company where nobody would leave the office until the VP did, for fear of looking like a slacker. When the boss stays until 7 or 8 PM, it's a real pain in the ass. You can only lose if you have a family to consider.

    #1 #2 Thanks for both your comments @Harvey Lloyd
    Absolutely agree that being present is the key to application. I also believe that building positive habits requires thinking about multiple time horizons, but acting in the here and now.

    I, too, have a love-hate relationship with the word "maturity" -when it is defined by being sensitive to others and not wrapped up in ourselves exclusively -I'm OK with that. But when it means "acting my age" - Id rather act my shoe-size.
    Thanks again for reading and joining the conversation.

    Really enjoyed the perspective of the discipline needed for CI. I would also state that we need to be present in the moment we find ourselves. Application requires dedication and focus for the time we set aside for such matters.

    "On ancient battlefields, did arrows shot from a long range wound more than kill?"
    -- my answer on Quora

    The key phrase here is “shot from a long range”. The distance factor means that there’s a good chance that they were shot at some elevation (rather than directly at the target) - with the intention that they would ‘fall into’ a mass of enemy troops rather than ‘pick off’ an individual.

    In this sense the arrows were rather more like light artillery or mortars than bullets. They might even regain some velocity/’punch’ from the force of gravity (thank you, Daniel Ma ).

    I expect that the wounds from such an overhead arrow-swarm would likely be to the head and upper body (“Don’t look up!”) - and part of the value of it would be to distract the enemy from the troops in front of them. If accompanied by a well-timed infantry or cavalry charge, the effect could be devastating.

    Point of comparison:

    Many ancient weapons were likelier to wound than to kill. Armor/protection, crudity of the weapons themselves (bludgeon/slice/poke), limited range (mostly ‘arm’s length’) and the relative weakness of the humans who welded them (force) meant that ancient battles meant lots of screaming, exhaustion, and relatively slow bleeding-out.

    As noted by others here, an arrow wound (or multiple wounds) might be relatively minor, yet it could still incapacitate, weaken, and even kill.

    #1 If on dares to think sane and straight, would you accept the fact that the golfclub, your a member of, with its own network of franchises and business entities, working together, in what ever format, that the self proclaimed despots and chairmen of the board, suddenly strip your sovereignty and demand exclusive rights and way to you house and income? That such board members constant change the rules of engagement and demand cooperation rather then leave you liberty to decide for yourself? Any politician concurring with such has no rights to be seen as democratic chosen leader representing people who themselves haven't had any democratic saying in it. If the Brits would dare to think straight, the most sane thing to do is immediate to abolish such organization and know that the newly gained independence only will bring prosperity since they can act at will. Even state to become a taxheaven for many if that would serve their purpose. We may wish we one day will have a bold government in the Netherlands taking such sane step and close the borders to safeguard its inhabitants in stead bowing there head out of personal gain and opportunity towards a bunch of despots in Brussels. It strikes me really whhat power they have over all those subordinates. An utter interesting question. Thanks for your respons Martin.
