Why you need a Boss in your life ?

Posted on: March 15, 2012

Many “Entrepreneurs” might kill me after reading this article 🙂

So many a times I have this discussion from fellow Entrepreneurs who are working hard to build their dream company.  When asked that why they preferred to be an Entrepreneur, rather than choosing a regular worldly path of good career. More often or not they answer with “I won’t have any boss to order me”. I think they misinterpreted the general philosophy of whole Entrepreneurship.

What elders said is “You need to be your own boss”. That means technically you have a boss, and you are the one who should be bossing around to yourself. What is a Boss anyway ? A boss is someone who scold you if you miss any deadline or not able to deliver quality. A boss is someone who give you real tough time after 5PM if a project delivery is on your head even if you might be waiting to meet your dearest wife. At the same time, a boss is also someone who praises you at occasions when you actually have done a good job and make you feel proud on yourself.  He gives you direction when you are confused. That ain’t sound like a bad boss. In fact, I don’t disagree with the whole concept of having a boss hovering over your head.

A good friend of mine once said “A boss is someone who brings the real out of you.” Do you think you can replace that guy with yourself ? Can you scold yourself when you missed any personal commitment ?  Can you make yourself sit in office or your work place for hours to honor commitment to yourself ? If yes, than yes, you can be your own boss.  But true again, you need a boss. Be it you or some one else to make you productive.
