Bring Your First Day of Work Passion



Remember your first day of work? Your shoes were shined. Your shirt was pressed, and you had told your Mom that you were going to set the world on fire. And then, about two weeks later, you discovered you worked with a bunch of dweebs. People who weren’t committed. People who weren’t competent. People who gossiped and whined and complained and suddenly you lowered your sights.

And then, 20, 30 years went by, and you kind of missed your chance to really have an extraordinary career. Well, what if, instead, you brought that “first day of work” passion to work every day? You see, no matter where you work, you’re going to work with people who are imperfect, and flawed, and have challenges, but you could be the person that changes them. If you set the intention to be that person, and make an impact every day by making requests with kindness in your heart, you can create that workplace you want to be in.

So, every day bring your “first day of work” passion to the office, and your last day will be as good, if not a whole lot better, than your first day.

    Why has the text of your Monday posts been removed? We have many employees here that don’t receive the eZine directly, so we post the text version on several bulletin boards around our business. Haven’t been able to do that for 3 weeks now.

    Could you please bring back the text portion? Staff does not have audio. They have no way knowing what you have to say. We would greatly appreciate it. Have a wonderful day 🙂
