JUST LOVING YOUR JOB IS NOT ENOUGH
Loving Your Job Is Not The Most Important factor in getting the job done well in the first place. There are many people who love their job for all sorts of reasons. Some love their job because it’s the only one they feel comfortable in. Some love their job because it was the only one they could get after years of layoff. Others love their job because they bought the business from someone else. Yet others love their job because they somehow managed to turn a hobby into a business.
In all of the above instances the people concerned love their job. The question is, are they doing a great job, a good job or an OK job? Only their efforts, attitude and passion can determine that.
LOVING YOUR JOB BUT BEING HALF-HEARTED IS NOT ON EITHER
As an example of someone that really loves their job but fall far off the mark when it comes to personal performance none of us need to look too far. We all know someone that loves what they are doing but does it just adequately enough to get by. Just recently I undertook a consulting job with a young couple down on their luck trying to start up a new business.
The person I want to showcase was retrenched from his full time job a few months ago and he and his family were fast using up their cash reserves and were in danger of losing their home if they didn’t greatly improve their business workflow. I also assumed the man was competent in his work as he had done this work part time for the past 18 months and had plenty of time to get his act together.
