Have you ever noticed when a really catchy song comes on the radio, you can’t help but tap a toe, hum or even sing along? For me, it is when a song from my late teens and early twenties comes alive. There is something about reminiscing back to a time of personal freedom, and feeling like the world is your oyster, that truly gets a person going.
Do you remember when you first entered your career or business and you could feel your body vibrate with excitement about what you were doing? Remember the thrill of anticipation for a new project?
How long has it been since you felt a rock and roll momentum in your job?
Perhaps it’s time to shake things up and take a good look at what you do every day.
- What are the work activities that charge you the most?
- What action could you do to bring an inspiring activity at work into your every day?
- Who are the people at the office that you can collaborate with to give you the kind of energy and enthusiasm you want at work?
- Is there a project you can get approved that keeps innovation and motivation charged?
The key thing to note is this:
People have a tendency to wait for their boss, employer, co-workers to present them with activities to excite them about going to work.
The reality is that we create our own motivation and inspiration. Stop waiting for the company, boss, co-worker, department to change, start taking action to create your own beat and dance to the music.
The energy we put into our work is the energy we get out of our work.
Now, shake, stir, repeat!
Every day is a new beginning granted to us for approaching life with enthusiasm – and life includes work! Find at least one activity or action to bring you closer to a rock and roll momentum, then seek approval, schedule it and enjoy!
Opportunity: There is a good possibility you will be rewarded with renewed respect from co-workers for your innovative and enthusiastic attitude.
What kinds of activities give you a charge you at work?
