WHAT APPEARS TO BE
In 1987, 61% of workers said they were satisfied with their jobs. In 2006 that number was down to 47%. (Conference Board) See a trend?
Have you decided if you’ll be satisfied with your job in 2008?
WHAT MIGHT BE
It’s crazy: countless people have already decided they won’t like their job in 2008. Like a computer that has a default setting, these people have programmed themselves with a “work sucks” attitude.
And because our vision creates our perspective, and perspective is reality, work sucks for these people.
Do you enjoy throwing away 250 days each year – before they even happen?
WHAT CAN BE
Spread the word: work doesn’t have to suck. If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance you are a part of the minority that realizes a person doesn’t have to allow the circumstances in their life to determine the quality of their life. Which means, of course, that you’re more effective at changing the circumstances in your life.
Here’s a wild idea:
- Make a prediction of how many “on-a-roll” days you will have at work – the days you will be satisfied with your job.
- Tell a close friend your goal.
- Create a plan to operate on-a-roll while at work. (Hint: powerful questions are key.)
- Strategically place a note pad in your car. At the end of the workday assess whether you were on-a-roll that day or not.
- On December 31, 2008, celebrate your success.
Deliver on the idea above, and be assured of this: you will become more effective at EVERYTHING you do.
In advance, congratulations from The Tall Guys for making 2008 the year people discover the greater you.
What is the difference between what “might be” and what “can be”? You decide.
