At some points in our professional lives, we might have wondered if we were indispensable? Do you think you are indispensable? Do you wish that you are indispensable? The reality can be discouraging if you build your esteem based on your career achievements.
Movement in each organization is the norm rather than exception. Employees join and leave an organization. Staff may move horizontally and vertically within an organization. Roles and responsibilities change. Nobody is indispensable.
At times we may think that we have to work on certain tasks, as there are few others who can manage. This is definitely a DELUSION. Imagine what will happen if, for whatever reasons, you have to be away? Nothing. Someone else will simply take over your roles and responsibilities. And life goes one.
This awareness is liberating, as we are no longer burdened by our roles and responsibilities. We are therefore free (if we wish) to move on and explore other options in life.
Do you agree that we are all dispensable in the context of work? If so, do you find this liberating?
