Workplace Motivation is About Work That’s Important
My regular readers are probably wondering if I’ve taken a vacation or leave of absence from the blogging world. The answers are no and no. Actually, work has been keeping me extremely busy. My day job has taken on a considerable number of projects in the past couple months and I’ve been working all or part of every day for the past two weeks. This coming Sunday will be my first day off in three weeks!
But all this work is a good thing. Well, maybe not the long hours. But having important work to do is what motivates me. And that formula is adding up to some real excitement at my job.
I’ve always been a believer that it’s not your employer’s job to motivate you. But it is their job to give you work that is valuable to the companies success. Everyone wants to feel that their work is meaningful and important. And I believe that most good workers find motivation increases as the significance of their work increases.
If you find yourself unmotivated at work or feeling bored, take a look at the work you are doing. Is it important? Does your employer or supervisor value what you produce? Find a job with important work to be done and you will find a career that is motivating.
So, I’m taking a break from the excitement at work to write this quick post. In a week or two I hope to be back to my normal writing pattern of two to three posts each week. Until then, why don’t you share with us what motivates you at work?
