Every now and then I get people who ask me why I don’t just put the minimal effort into my work… Why I am not satisfied just having a person hired to provide services and would rather have someone puts in at least 100% effort. Maybe because I like my work! I don’t understand why people keep jobs that they don’t want to put effort into. That seems to be such a complacent lifestyle. I have the luxury of selecting jobs and lifestyles of my choosing and I choose something I want to spend my time doing. I am not egotistical and am fully aware that it is just a job and as such, I am replaceable, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting to do my best in whatever areas I put my time into inside and outside of work. If I don’t have enough interest to do my best, then maybe it is time to move on. I hate it when people complain about their lives and then make no effort to change their lives and then put me down for my effort. Would you/ Do you/ Have you work(ed) a job you have no interest in and did only the minimal effort? Did/ Do you find it annoying when others do their best?
I recently was sent a documentary preview about a woman who was still playing piano daily at 109 years old. Now, that’s passion! I hope that whatever life you are living, you have found something you have interest/ passion in to make your days more meaningful! What makes your life meaningful to you and what has held your interest over the years?
