Part of the fascination, I have in addressing the workplace as a primary topic is a feeling that this task is synergistic with my mission of ministry. Since we spend a large portion of our lives working; one clear way I can benefit other’s is adding fulfillment to your professional life.
If I can help you be happier in your career, then I have enriched your life. So this assignment is actually an extension of what I see as my ministry to help others. If I help you get more satisfaction out of your career, it helps me be on track with my own.
Being fulfilled in your work and being successful at doing it are hand in glove propositions. Being effective at one contributes to the other.
Who will do their best job; if they do not gain satisfaction out of their work? No one!…. It’s like asking someone to climb Mount Everest when they don’t like the mountains. It’s not going to work. If you are a swimmer who is mountain climbing; that won’t work. If you are mountain climber who is swimming; that won’t work either. – – – Sometimes, what we are doing is not a fit for our skill-set or personality. If that’s the case, quit trying to put a square peg in a round hole and find something that better “fits” your talents, abilities and interests.”
However, most times it is not a job re-positioning, we need. If we don’t address the difficulties that hold us back and haunt us in our current situation. We are not likely to overcome them in a new situation.
It’s a funny picture of the cow over-looking his own grassy meadow, trying to reach the single blade of grass on the other side of the fence. While it may be a funny picture; it is a sad reality, all too often. Some People never find fulfillment, because they are always looking for it somewhere else. Fulfillment is most often found where we are at. And then grows into something more, somewhere else because we outgrow the situation, we mastered.
If we run from problems in our current station: We will most time find them in different faces and different places, only bigger than before.
So how do you get more fulfillment at work? Here are 10 good tips
