Interpretation of the “Gyro Man”
The Spring Festival is approaching, and the expected ease has not arrived, but many people have become faster “gyro people”.
Fear of falling behind, being marginalized, and being abandoned by society . The modern life of efficiency priority, busyness and tension have become a state of the year that urban white-collar workers cannot escape.
It ‘s going to be a Chinese New Year, but it has become a busier and more tired gyro. On the afternoon of the 20th, Cao Jian, who worked at a commercial bank in Jinan, went out again.
By the end of the year, most of the depositors’ salaries, year-end awards, and scholarships had arrived. The situation of queuing for money was everywhere. Cao Jian, who was responsible for the maintenance of ATMs on the campus, was also at his busiest time.
How busy are you?
Usually, an ATM machine puts 500,000 yuan in cash every 7 days to meet the needs, but these days, an ATM machine spit out 800,000 yuan a day.
Cao Jian and his colleagues were busy applying for cash transfers, sorting out at least 70% to 80% of new banknotes, and then going out once or even a few times to put out money.
Due to frequent operations and anti-virus software updates, the ATM system has been restarting for no reason recently.
This time, the customer had another problem with the deposit. Cao Jian had to rush to open the back office, check the banknotes, verify the amount of money, settle the account, and explain to the customer.
The customer was anxious, but the vehicle in front of it had grown into a dragon. Cao Jian, sitting in the car, gave a sigh of relief, “It’s going to be a Chinese New Year, but I’ve become a busy and tired gyro and can’t stop.
“In early January, Yu Congming, who was a father, was a doctor in the oncology department of a hospital in Jinjing Avenue, Zibo. He was too busy during this time, because now is the intensive period of patient review.
At 6:50 in the morning, Yu Congming went to the hospital, returned home for dinner at 7 o’clock in the evening, and returned to the hospital at 8 o’clock for work until 10 o’clock in the evening.
The day shift is over. The next day should have been closed for the night shift, but the break is no longer possible.
Yu Congming’s mentality is not bad: “Everyone is like this, I’m young, let’s go, it’s good to stay until the New Year.
“” There is no psychological stress, but busy is stress.
“Xue Liu, who works in the data department of SF Express, recently had two small crickets on his face. This is getting angry.
Starting from the 10th, “like being tied up with several rubber bands”, the company’s atmosphere became tense and the work intensity increased. Liu Xue, sitting in front of the computer, was highly concentrated, and his keyboard crackled.
Now Liu Xue even wants to take the initiative to work overtime, just to earn a few days back from the Spring Festival holiday destined to shrink, “The year is busy, don’t you look forward to those days?
“The Spring Festival is over, and it’s another year waiting to be busy. On the 20th, Song Ning, who works on the Huidong Constellation of Wendong East Road in the provincial capital, is finally relieved.
As a middle-level manager in the Jinan office of a surveying and mapping equipment sales company, he has already passed this road by the end of the year.
From the 16th, the staff of the office started a special year-end summary meeting before the frequent period of “walking around” and visited the cooperation unit to thank you.
Song Ning ‘s personal relationships with customers are mostly justified. As for those customers who have not cooperated well, the company has not arranged a visit directly. For the sales industry, the movement at the end of the year is usually labeled “utilitarian” and “purposeful”.”Label, in order to avoid embarrassment, simply cold treatment.
The performance of the office in 2010 was exceeded, and Song Ning and colleagues have the joy of the rest of their lives.
“At the end of the year, when some people laugh and some people cry, there will always be a group of people going around and changing people around the Spring Festival.
“In Song Ning’s eyes, sales is a naked industry, relying solely on numbers.
At the end of the year, if the performance is too bad, everyone will wonder whether this rice bowl can hold the boss next year, and the employees even think: “Is there any value in the existence of the office, is there any value in the existence of this person?
Liu Jiangwei, who works in a bank, bluntly stated that he was “burnout”.
Before the New Year’s Day, the bank was busy with year-end settlement, and everyone was desperately pulling business and deposits. Now it is finally over.
However, there were still some human relationships to be operated years ago, and the performance task in 2011 has come down again. The first quarter after the Spring Festival will soon end.
For Liu Jiangwei, who is doing customer business, relaxation is destined to be temporary and rewarding.
Now he can’t lift his spirits, feels empty and empty in his heart, and has no sense of accomplishment. He is looking forward to the New Year and closed the door to sleep for a few days.
”Give up smoking.
“At the end of December last year, Liu Jiangwei was able to smoke two packs of cigarettes a day.
He said he was not a big smoker, but those days were too tiring and smoking was too fierce.
Having said that, he paused, “After the Spring Festival, waiting for another year, it is not easy every day.
“No matter how busy it is, it is better than sitting on a cold bench.” 20, when the reporter saw Mr. Zhu, he was attending a conference.
At the age of thirty-seven, he was middle-level in a public institution in Jinan, and his hometown was in the countryside.
He laughed at himself as a “busy man” years ago. He was busy for work and work. He ended his work for a year, thanked and met across units and departments.Entertainment . In fact, not only years ago, during the Spring Festival, his time was evenly divided. Parents who can spend a few hours with their hometown can be counted. He was busy some time ago, and he said something like this: when he was young, he did n’t have any job and order, he went home after work, he was often refused by his wife to be sociable, and he would n’t live for life.Resources are available, and some relationships need to be maintained. Active and passive entertainment increases, and it is often late to return home.
”People in the arena involuntarily.
“Speaking this sentence in a joke tone, Mr. Zhu had a vague smile on his body.” Busy, at least that is not the most marginal.
Everyone complains of being busy, but also a realization of self-achievement.
Would you accept it if you were beaten back?
When the reporter asked: If you have enough power, will you choose to be clean?
Mr. Zhu asked back, “What is enough power?
He said with emotion, it is not easy to step up, and before doing everything, think about the consequences of doing so?
Is it worth it?
”No one is irreplaceable, and busy is to ensure that they are not abandoned by society.
University teacher Mr. Su told reporters that from a utilitarian perspective, busyness is necessary.
Taking him as an example, the school holiday is over. The thesis, thesis, and summary meeting are here, but it is better than sitting on a cold bench.
Doing research shows that you are struggling; entertainment is also the price you have to pay for your development. Doesn’t one want to “progress”?
Under the law of survival of the fittest, who dares to sit idle?
”Traditional society, although people live in poverty, they live in peace and quiet.
“In the impression of Wang Zhongwu, a professor of sociology at the School of Philosophy and Social Development of Shandong University, in the winter before, the peasants were idle, and when they entered the lunar month, they were busy preparing New Year’s products, and they were in a cheerful atmosphere.
But now that the Spring Festival has taken place, the taste of the year is still thin, and busy and tense has become a state that many people cannot escape.
Why is Chinese New Year more busy?
Wang Zhongwu analyzed that this reflected the oppression and replacement of traditional life by modernization from one aspect.
“By the end of the year, many units were busy checking and evaluating, assessing their responsibilities, and even eliminating the last ones. The market mechanism drove people to hurry and hurry, for fear of falling behind and being marginalized.
Wang Zhongwu said that the basic principle of the market mechanism is to give priority to efficiency, and the survival of the fittest.
Because the Chinese have more resources and less resources, people’s desire for success and possession has been greatly stimulated, resulting in huge competition pressure.
As far as the festival is concerned, people should relax, rest, and enjoy the state of the festival, but people still can’t or dare not take it easy.
”Chinese society is now in a period of rapid transition. The pace is accelerating, competition is intensifying, the social responsibilities and tasks that individuals need to assume are increasing, and the pressure for survival is increasing.
Tu Keguo, the director of the Institute of Culture of the Shandong Academy of Social Sciences, explained “can’t relax”: In this case, in order to adapt to life, people need to pay more time and energy.
Tu Keguo said that when he left the old and welcomed the new, it is generally acknowledged that everything is done properly, and it is particularly prominent to concentrate on a busy period of time.
In addition, it is still a human society and a relationship society, and time and income have been diverted a lot.
What’s more, many people have lost their ego and possessed nothing. Under the spirit of conformity, what society is pursuing is what everyone is doing. They are also busy themselves, for fear of being isolated.
Fame and fortune only means happiness. In addition to coping with busy and stressful work and life, the psychological feelings of busy anxiety also follow. Unfortunately, this is the reality that many people have to face at this time in the past.
In this regard, Li Qin, a professor of sociology at the School of Philosophy and Social Development of Shandong University, analyzed that by the end of the year, people usually have a relaxed psychological expectation, but the actual state may be hindered by the distance, and between personal needs and interestsContradictions may occur. If they cannot be reconciled, they will easily become busy and irritable.
”The market mechanism is conducive to motivating people to advance and promote development, but when the laws of competition are universalized and people’s universality and value are completely transformed, people also reduce the tools and commodities of competition.
“Wang Zhongwu analyzed and said that our current development method and work method are still very extensive, which is material-oriented.
GDP has increased in recent years, but the happiness index has fallen.
Middle-aged people are tired and young people are unhappy.
”In fact, we should all think about it backwards. If happiness, health, affection, ecology are sacrificed, what is the significance of such development?
Is it worth the loss?
Is it too expensive?
“Wang Zhongwu said.
In this regard, Tu Keguo put forward two suggestions: on the scale of society, we should reasonably guide competition, advocate a rational allocation of resources, achieve inclusive growth, and create more survival and development space for more people.
In addition, individuals should not be too utilitarian, they can appropriately reduce desire, suppress desire, be content with contentment, and achieve restrained development.In addition, the significance of life beliefs cannot be ignored. Belief and support can resist the uncertainty and insecurity of life.
And Wang Zhongwu put forward an immediate suggestion to the festival, the unit should create conditions for employees to calm down, relax, enjoy the joy of life, enjoy the atmosphere of the New Year.
After all, “happiness is the ultimate goal of social development, and income and work are just the means to achieve happiness.
“” At the end of the year, when some people laugh and some people cry, they will always gather around and change people around the Spring Festival.
“In Song Ning’s eyes, sales is a naked industry, relying solely on numbers.
The school holiday is over, and the thesis, thesis, and summary meeting are here, but it is better than sitting on a cold bench.
Doing research shows that you are struggling, and entertainment is also the price you have to pay for your development. Does n’t one want to “progress”?
The basic principle of the market mechanism is to give priority to efficiency and to survive the fittest.
With more people and less resources, people’s desire for success and possession has been greatly stimulated, resulting in huge competitive pressure.
