Leadership - Part 12 – 13 Jul 09 – What’s Important to You?
Are you enjoying yourself; not necessarily every day and every little bit of the day. But, in general; do you like what it is that you do?
Do you get up every morning with a burn that can’t wait until you get to work because there is something you just gotta get at? This may not be your routine but ask yourself if it should be.
Here’s another question you might ask yourself. Are you doing what you really want to do? I don’t mean “are you on permanent vacation?” Of course, we all would like to be in that rare air that allows us to get up every day and fish a different hole; but no, that’s not what I’m getting’ at.
Does what you do allow you to do what you want to do when you are not at work? There is just so much leisure time available to any of us. You have to bank it and spend it wisely. They will not let you buy anymore than your allowed allotment.
While you are at it; here’s just one more question you need to consider. Is what you do gonna get you where ever it is that you want to go professionally? If the answer to this is no; buddy, you need to start thinking and planning right now. There isn’t enough time on this earth to spend any where you don’t really want to be. Oh, I know this may not be the time to walk away from a paying gig; but it is always the time to think and plan to be able to walk away from a paying gig that isn’t getting you where you want to go.
