Why should you build a tribe instead of a job

Great Ujamaa:

Nowadays, the concept of a tribe is an important one for not just businesses but for yourself and your own growth as a person. As adults, we often get caught up in the idea of climbing to the highest position our jobs offer or working for ourselves and being our own boss. I don't have anything against these jobs but something you need to know is that your job or even that business of yours might not be permanent. You could lose your job or business at any point so let's discuss why you should be building a tribe instead of a job.

You don't build a job, you build a tribe. A tribe for those new to GNJMedia is a stable historically developed group with territory, economic life, distinctive culture and a language in common. A job is a set of duties that you do for someone or something that can be given to someone else. One is permanent the other temporary, now you only have to decide which one you want to build. For us here it is a simple choice. We chose to build a Tribe, because you take care of jobs, but a properly built tribe will take care of you.

As adults, we often get caught up in the idea of climbing to the highest position our jobs offer or working for ourselves and being our own boss. I don't have anything against these jobs but something you need to know is that your job or even that business of yours might not be permanent. You could lose your job or business at any point so let's discuss why you should be building a tribe instead of a job.

A tribe is more than just another word for community. It's actually a group of people with the same interests and beliefs that are willing to help each other out in order to accomplish personal and even professional goals. This is why having one won't make it easy for you to get fired or lose your business because it's something you build for yourself.

If you're thinking about how much time it takes to build one then think about social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter which all started as tribes but now they're some of the most popular networking sites used by hundreds of millions of people around the world. But what made them grow from a tiny idea to world conquering corporations is the simple idea of tribes. Now the idea that I am trying to get hit home with you is that being as big as they are now was not the central theme. The central idea was creating a space where like minded people could come together and share. Building a tribal base was the focus, not a creating job. The jobs came as an afterthought to support the tribe, and the other tribes that were using the space created. Here are some questions for you to wrestle with especially if you are on the #NguzoSabaChallenge:

In your opinion, why is the tribe more important than a job?

What is your definition of a tribe, why should you build one, and how do you build one?

What is one way that you have built a tribe?

What are the qualities of a tribe?

What does your tribe look like?

What strengths and weaknesses does your tribe have?

Working on a job or a business that depends on you and only you is not sustainable long-term. It's easier to move your tribe along with you than it is to tell your job where they need to go. Understand the value of building relationships and learn to work together with other leaders instead of trying to beat them and rise above them.

Here is your Proverb:

No one knows the story of tomorrow's dawn.
