Do You Love Your Job?

No job is perfect, even the best relationships have their down days. So, with that being said, all of the following may not be the case all of the time but when you LOVE your job, many of the following should be the case!
1. Do you talk about people or do you talk about the great things they are doing?
When you love your job, you talk about people and their successes, not their failures.
2. Do you think, “Do I have to do that” or “I can’t wait to take this on?”
When you love your job, you enjoy taking on new tasks, not complaining about them.
3. Do you see your clients as “people to satisfy” or simply as “people?”
When you love your job, you think of them as real people who have real needs, not as numbers.
4. You enjoy your time at work.
When you love your job, it’s a part of your life, not something you have to do.
5. You would recommend working at your company to your best friend.
When you love your job, you can’t stop talking about how great your company is, not trash talking about it.
6. You enjoy attending meetings.
When you love your job, you enjoy meetings…seriously…Why? Because it’s fun to be at the center of thoughtful, challenging discussions that lead to decisions, initiatives, and changes – changes you get to be a part of, not “do I have to go to another meeting?”
7. You think about winning not surviving.
When you love your job, you enjoy being challenged to achieve your potential, not “am I going to get fired today?”
8. You see your manager as a person you work with, not for.
When you love your job, you feel valued, respected, and trusted, not like a door mat.
9. You don’t want to let your co-workers down.
When you love your job, it is important to you that you carry your weight because you admire them – and you want them to admire you, not “I have to do everything around here.”
10. You hardly ever look at the clock.
When you love your job, you’re too busy making things happen, not “oh my gosh, I have 7 more hours to go.”
