Why You Can't Work for Me...

…or anyone else for that matter.

I heard this the other day from Peter Z. Wasowski, a guest on Dave Asprey’s Bullet Proof Podcast, and I think it’s worth sharing:

  • If you want to be happy for 5 minutes, take a nap.
  • If you want to be happy for two weeks, take a vacation.
  • If you want to be happy from time to time, have a drink.
  • If you want to be happy continuously, keep creating a positive difference in the lives of others.

The engagement rate of employees in the U.S. is about 20%.  You read that right.  80% of the workforce reports being moderately, to severely disengaged at work.  We spend A LOT of time-related to work - driving to and from work, thinking about work, and actually doing work - these activities take up over half of your waking life!

If you’re not engaged in satisfying work that brings you a sense of connection, meaning, and hope then you’re not only disengaged at work, your disengaged from life!

Now many people think that this is their bosses’ fault.  And make no mistake, executives are 100% responsible for workplace culture. However, you too are 100% responsible for YOUR workplace culture.  Either fix the one you have or find and create a new one.

Are you using your job (whatever it may be) as a platform to create a positive difference in the lives of others?

Are you working for YOU or are you pretending to be powerless?

If you’re tired of pretending, then I’m betting you will enjoy a short free read called The NEXT American Dream Challenge which you can get right here, right now!
