The difference between Jarbs and Work.
We all watch these TED talks. we are awe-inspired and challenged.
But what is it that makes these speakers so compelling?
It is the difference between Jarbs and Work. All these speakers demostrate that difference by presenting the fruit of their Work to us.
Each election cycle we listen to the endless rhetoric of politicians whose moth spouts the word "Jarbs" in every sentence. What is this thing "Jarb".
A "Jarb" is an economic unit indicating the value extracted from an individual to fuel a thing called "economy".
Economy is a machine designed to harvest the surplus value from individuals for the free disposal of the machine-makers.
How can you tell if your value (labor) is being applied to Work or Jarb?
Ask yourself - who/what do i work for?
If the answer is "money" or some stranger or corporation - you are in a Jarb.
If the answer is "myself", "my family", "My community", "my contribution to humanity", "my dream" then you are in Work.
Only those undertaking Work are presented on TED.
I chose to add Faith Jegede's talk as a reference here - but I nominate every single TED talk as reference.
Are you equal to these people?
If not - abandon your Jarb and find your Work - that is the only difference.
Closing Statement from Mitch SMith
Here's another angle:
This demonstrates both the difference of Jarb/Work and how the resulting power and liberation magnify our value to ourselves and the world.
