Cine munceste “pe rupte”?
Ma uitam azi pe un topic la LinkedIn despre cat de distorsionata e imaginea unui freelancer in viziunea unui angajat. Apoi am citit observatii (pertinente) de la freelanceri – cum vad ei lucrurile. De departe cea mai frumoasa declaratie dar si adevarata am gasit-o la Petra Quilitz. Nu are sens sa o traduc, sa nu-i modific involuntar sub-textul.
Captain: “Computer, define ‘hard work’ for the media industry on Earth.
Computer: “Hard work. Any kind of creative work that makes products or services on Earth successful.”
Captain: “Computer, define ‘successful”
Computer: ” A product or service on Earth that sells in high quantities.”
Captain: “Computer, give me an over view over our data on who works harder and creates more success. Full time employees or freelancers.”
Computer: ” Bad full time employees work the least of both categories. Good full time employees work more than bad full time employees. Bad freelancers work more than bad full time employees, but not as much as good full time employees. Good freelancers work more than bad full time employees, and also more than good full time employees. Very good free….”
Captain: ” Wow, hold it.Too complicated.”
Computer: “Good freelancers work the hardest.”
Captain (looking out of the window into the distance of the galaxy): “Good freelancers work for a life, not for a living I guess.”
Computer: ” A rather philosophical interpretation of the data situation, but correct, sir.”
Captain:” Correct course 354 degrees east. Let’s find those freelancers before someone else recruits them.
Computer: ” No need, sir. Good freelancers are often not in high demand on Earth”
Captain:” What do you mean. Not in high demand.”
Computer:” On Earth, many businesses don’t operate based on the principle of success. ” (Computer pauses for a moment) “One could say that businesses often work for personal prestige, not for profit”
Captain (smirks): ” A rather philosophical interpretation of the data situation, computer, but correct.”
Nu e deloc “coborat” dialogul din StarTrek. Sincer, opinia personala este ca freelancer-ul “trage mai tare” pentru ca sunt in joc banii, reputatia si viitorul sau. Angajatul, oricat de superlativ ar fi, poate merge si cu frana de mana trasa. Leafa merge oricum, dar profesionalism regasesti si la unul si la celalalt, fara tagada.
Parerea mea! 😀
