What matters most at work? I mean, besides doing the tasks you’re paid to do? I think it’s the relationships we have at work. I think it’s the camaraderie.
What do I mean by that? I think it boils down to common purpose, and people working together for the common cause and getting better together. Of course, not everyone works in the same way, not everyone puts in the same effort, not everyone has the same opportunity to contribute, but…
everyone can get better; everyone can do their job the best they are able; everyone can support each other with a good attitude and sense of teamwork; everyone can add positive energy to the collective.
That’s what I think it’s all about. Find a place like that, it’s the intangible that provides the glue and the energy and the cohesiveness for the long haul. And anything worthwhile? Yep. Business plans and changing forecasts and new product launches and audits and everything in between.
It’s a long haul. Stick together along the way? GOOD.
