This seems like such a simple statement but when it comes to real life it can sometimes be a lot harder than you think.
There are probably a lot of people that say when they go to work “it’s just a job” and that is something that can be hard to understand. Yes, a job can sometimes be a challenge when you are not totally loving what you are doing but there are probably parts of the job that you do love. There can even be days when something that you normally love doing seems not so enjoyable. When this happens you need to sit back and think about what you are doing and why.
Is your job something that you really enjoy doing or not? Of course, I think a lot of us would say that there are parts of the job that aren’t so enjoyable but then the other parts are very enjoyable. There are always the things that no one really enjoys doing but they need to get done. I know when it comes to some of the accounting for the business, I would love to be able to give it to someone else to do but it is part of my job. When I have the different projects that involve me writing and doing that part of the job then I am extremely happy. Yes, I am one of those people that enjoys writing and if you give me a manual or something like that to work on I am very happy. See I have been very lucky that I do love what I do in my job.
Making sure that you are doing some of what you love in your job is very important otherwise it is “just a job” and that doesn’t give you the incentive to do your best. Of course the words “it’s just a job” can be a result of just not being happen with the environment and not the actual job. Knowing the difference between being happy with the job and being happy with the environment is something else that needs to be looked at.
Do what you love and love what you do is something more people have to really do. Of course, there are always the jobs that need to be done and we don’t enjoy but think about the other parts of the job. Being able to go to work each day and know that you do love at least a good part of what you do can make a big difference on how you approach things. I love my what I do and hopefully a lot of people are just like me.
