Promotional Consultant Today is talking about passion. You might not be driven to work on a big idea. You might not even care about the product your company sells. How does this affect your passion in what you do? Today we pass along these points about passion.
Sometimes your passion is driven by a project you are working on for your company, or a person for whom you are working. The problem with this is that eventually you will be let down, says blogger Tim Sanchez. The project will hit an end point or the boss will eventually leave. Instead of depending on others for your passion, you need to turn your passion inward.
Here’s what Sanchez suggests:
• Be the one at your office who other employees talk about. Set the example that others strive to reach.
• Be the one who’s constantly raising the bar for what service should be. Be the one who takes ownership and isn’t afraid to say, “Here I am.” Be different. Set the example. Stick out.
• Derive your passion from what you do and how you do it. Whether you’re working construction or designing Apple’s next gadget, it takes passion to produce great products, not the other way around.
• Be self-driven about your passion in the workplace, whether it’s a product, a goal or the job itself.
