Are you having fun today?
Why I am asking this? Because it is important to be excited to get up every day and work on making a difference. Start with making a difference to your own lives and then, if possible, do something which impacts a bigger sphere.
This is more important than your title, the name of your company, the amount of money you make or how big your start up is going to be. All these are important in their own right; but you will not find true joy and satisfaction even after you have them all – if you are not enjoying your work and life on a day to day basis.
Many of us feel an itch to do something that we have been thinking to do for long. But how many actually end up doing it. Do not be part of the lot that only thinks and does not really do anything about their inspirations and dreams. Ask yourself on a regular basis,
- Are you excited to get up and go to work?
- Are you having fun with what you are doing?
- Are you learning something new on a regular basis?
If you ask yourself these questions and take action – you will grow with visible joy and satisfaction. You will be happy and people around you will be able to sense it; because it will come from within.
Life is not without its challenges. Everyday brings up surprises – some pleasant and others not so pleasant. You may come across some challenges when you go out to make a mark but if you are excited about your work – you will likely take these head on and win over.
You may be a marketer, an entrepreneur or an employee – it is all the same. If you are not excited to work and are not having fun it will show in your output. You can only create quality on a regular basis if you are having fun.
You need to find out what your idea of having fun is and then work on getting closer to it. For some it may be being the master of their time; for others it can be traveling to different places, or making a difference in the lives of people. It may not be your present but make sure that your future will not be the same. It should be as you want it to be.
If you are in a job or a situation that you do not like then it is your responsibility to take action to get out; and do it until you succeed. Do it smartly. No point pushing yourself against a wall.
Take guidance, read books, reach out to those who have walked the path. Take action, review and correct.
Do not do something you do not enjoy. When you start you will find a way out. Keep exploring until you are sure about your purpose and find what you really love doing.
Now think about your unique situation and come up with creative solutions to make sure than you have real fun while you work.
