Are you a banker or do you just work in a bank? Are you a builder or do you just happen to work for a carpenter and drive nails? Pick your business or industry and apply the same question. Years ago in high school I worked on a rice farm. Did it for two years and I was never a farmer, I just worked on a farm. I showed up for work and gave a good effort. However, I didn’t really understand farming and I didn’t make a real attempt to learn, I had no passion for the job and it certainly was never going to be a career. I was there for the paycheck. I had to work, I needed money and it was a job so I did it. If you’re a high school kid just trying to make a few bucks for the weekend that’s fine. But if you’re an adult and in this same spot then what a sad commentary that is. Unfortunately, we see it all the time (79% of the time because we measure it)… employees just going through the motions, no goals, no passion and no direction. Think about it and then answer the question… What are you?
