With my new job I am getting the benefit of being in an innovative, constantly changing environment. If you just work to be another body, going through the motions earning a paycheck until you either get fired, retire or die. Then you would probably not like it. Personally? I love it.
Being given a new opportunity has made me think how I approach tasks and my purpose in life very differently.
One of the buzz phrases used in the organisation is “How are you adding value?”
Basically it means how will I make life better for the organisation?
It is a very good way of not just thinking about work but about life in general –
- How can I share my healthy lifestyle with others?
- How can I create a mutually recepirocal relationship that will challenge and cause us both to grow – together and as individuals?
- How can I make my own life and by default the life of others better?
Last month I thought about quitting writing this blog. I did not see where I could take it. Then I thought “How can I add value to the Manifesto of Perfection?”
And I realised, I can talk to people about how I am making my life better and how they can make there better.
That was my rational behind doing my own goal setting awareness month – to help myself and advise others along the way.
I will be better from the exercise.
As for others?
They may not listen, or care, but at least I tried.
Every morning I wake up and think ‘How am I adding value?’
How do you add value?
