Do you love your job? Something I am sure you have been asked or have asked yourself. Thankfully, my answer is yes and I am very grateful for it. However, this has not always been the case. I have experienced the the Friday afternoon excitement of having a great weekend planned and then Sunday afternoon rolls around. I would get anxious, a little sad and my mood would change. “Oh, I have to go to work tomorrow”.
I wish I could provide you a simple calculation to a complex question, but I can’t. It took a lot of self evaluation, reflection, identifying what I liked/disliked and what the root problem was. Was it the people? Job? Company? Work-life balance? Work itself? Industry? Something else?
I enjoyed the job, the industry and the work needed to be successful. The team I worked with was good and provided me with challenges that have made me a better person.
So what was it?
Well it was ME. There is a fire that burns deep inside of me to make a positive difference in every person I meet and my actions are driven by this fire. I am not saying any of my last positions didn’t provide me an opportunity to do this….they simply didn’t provide it enough.
