A question to ask among yourselves, do you love what you do? You may be able to answer right away or it may take a minute to answer…after you have thought about it; why do you love what you do?
When you love what you do the odds of you being more successful, happier and healthier are in your favor! Doing what you love may mean never having a ‘normal’ work week; it could mean a 60-70 hour week is totally okay! Somedays may be a whirlwind, never the same, and when you crawl into bed at night you may think, “didn’t I just wake up?”
There are three words that come to mind when we think about loving our job or careers: success, fulfillment, and motivation.
Suc·cess – a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains prosperity.When working in the area that you part take an interest in, making yourself better and better each day can curate to becoming more successful. More opt to always taking on new tasks and challenges…even when you may have to do some major schedule changes!
Ful·fill·ment – the achievement of something desired, promised or predicted. Life is much more than getting paid…okay, but for real, how do you survive without money? Being fulfilled can be seeing yourself growing and grooming in work, as it may take time to get it all figured out…fulfillment can be different for everyone.
Mo·ti·va·tion – the general desire or willingness of someone to do something. Staying motivated is not a hard task. Staying a little longer, working on vacation, doing the little things that may seem pointless to others but mean a big deal to you are all signs that you’ll find in yourself when you love what you do. Giving yourself a little extra motivation to meet your goals, and when you do that, the sense of accomplishment is remarkable.
Why do we love what we do?
Being in social media marketing, never two days are the same. One day can be a meeting day from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm and the next day, working in pajamas, creating content for our clients, is the norm. It’s all about balance. At Eng@ged, when we make a difference, help a client with their social media and marketing needs, or when customers are satisfied…we have fulfilled our success and that’s what keeps us motivated!
Do what you love. Love what you do. ♥
