I would really like to hear from you on this. Will you comment with your thoughts?
I’ve worked in the corporate world for 25-plus years. The job is not my preferred job, but I need to pay bills. My preference for work would be a full-time career in writing and art. (Still working on that.) However, today’s post is not about my love/hate relationship with the corporate world. I will save that for another blog post. Today’s post relates to the idea of work motivation. What motivates you? What makes you want to work hard and produce amazing results in your job? What makes you look forward to arriving at the office each day? What makes you feel valuable? What makes you smile?
I work in Information Systems, and have for about 10 years. Over the years, the directors of our department have made the statement (or something similar), “Remember, people. The reason you have a job is because of the lawyers we support every day. The lawyers make lots of money for this firm, and they are the reason you have a job. Don’t forget why you are here. You are here to make their lives easier.”
Does a statement like that motivate you?
