With the social unrest and ongoing COVID-19 situation in Hong Kong, more companies have jump-started flexible workplace practices, an obvious one would be work-from-home arrangements. Flexible work culture is known to enhance employee’s productivity and wellbeing, offering a better work-life balance. Spending more time at home not only causes some to study online courses for upskilling, but also gives rise to the idea of becoming a slasher - a person who owns multiple career projects and demonstrates varied talents.
Hong Kong’s internet penetration in households have reached 94.1%, internet can be easily accessed for searching opportunities and performing the actual work. Sacrificing some leisure time is made easy without fixed working hours or location. So what is it that holds back these people of becoming a slasher? Perhaps it is the fear of not being able to multitask and perform well in the existing day job and this new job.
Multitasking or juggling jobs may seem scary at first, but in essence it is about focusing one task at a time. It requires good time management. Set the project milestones and timetable; let your mind focus at the present task.
