Why are the better thinkers getting the better jobs?
It’s because better thinkers are creating value.
They are getting the job done without creating a fuss. They are getting on with others. They are co-operating and solving problems.
They are mindful of creating opportunities. They use their brainpower to give their employer a much better return on payroll.
Better thinkers are more job-friendly. Employers prefer better thinkers.
On any given day in any given business there are value fountains and value drains.
That day the value fountains created value for the shareholders.
The value drains depleted shareholder value on that day.
The job of the CEO is to multiply the number of value fountains by ten. That’s why CEOs offer better jobs to better thinkers.
“What everyone in the world wants is a good job. A good job is a job with a paycheck from a steady employer with 30+ hours per week … however, in many cases there is no hope of getting one.”

“We have no idea what the jobs market will look like in 2050.”
