If this is your situation, how can you change your feelings about this job or task? It’s surprisingly simple once you know the answer. All you have to do is to remember the purpose of what you are doing in the first place.
How do you do that? You remember that the bottom line of every task and profession is about helping someone. Every profession in the world and every task in a day are about helping someone do something or feel a certain way. The key word here is helping.
By remembering that you are helping someone and having a clear idea of who you are helping and what you are helping them do or experience, you will bring the purpose back into whatever task you are working to accomplish. And with that purpose, you will regain the enthusiasm and energy to cut through the energy of stagnation and routine.
Who I am helping with this task?
What am I helping them do or experience?
How can I make their experience even better?
Let those questions guide your daily actions in your business and your life. When you start asking these questions and focus on helping other people around you, you will grow fearless and decisive.
Every profession on the planet is about helping others. Whatever it is you do: event planning, coaching, medicine, marketing, dentistry, news reporter, etc. Everyone from the CEO of the company to the intern who is getting coffee for everyone; from the architect of the building to the construction worker… every single profession and task is about helping someone.
Keeping that in mind will help you focus you energy in the right places to do great work!
