What if it mattered?

 mead quote

What if? What if your team became ‘thoughtful, committed citizens’ to your vision? What if your team felt so strongly about their work – with you as their motivator – that they enjoyed coming to work? What if they found the ability to recover from the inevitable pitfalls to truly succeed – success being feeling happy with their work life?

We find happiness in our life (work and professional) when it matters to us.  We succeed because we found something that matters to us.  We change the world a little step at a time when it matters to us.

Matter in your own life.  Become ‘thoughtful, committed citizens’ to your own world and the big world (even your office) will get a little bit better – or maybe even a whole lot better.

Complacency / Apathy / Boredom

bored in the office

There’s this mad rush every morning.  People struggle to get out of bed, get ready, and race to work in rush hour traffic with millions of other people in every developed country.  They arrive at their building and sit in their cube where there’s a long list of things to do – some worthwhile and most not.  They don’t run the company, they aren’t in a corner office, and they never will be.  It’s ‘just a paycheck’.

A few musings on a Tuesday morning:

  • Own it! Why are you here just for the paycheck? Make it better or move on.
  • Stop whining! Make it better or move on.
  • There are soo many emails – unless you need documentation, email is the WORST form of communication. Talk to people – engage with people.  Make it better or move on.
  • Give a damn about your life and Make it better!

You are in charge of your life.  Make it better – Make it matter – Make it count.
