“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” – Seth Godin
Everyone has a bad day once in a while. Those days when you don’t want to go to work, or accomplish anything. However, those days are fewer and further between when you love what you do for a living. Why should you be passionate about your work? Because…
Passionate people are productive.
If you love what you do, then you’ll look forward to doing it. You’ll wake up, go to work, and get started on the next task in line – with a smile on your face. You’ll accomplish more in a shorter amount of time, simply because you enjoy it so much.
Passionate people are great teammates.
For some people, loving what they do can become contagious. A positive attitude can affect the work atmosphere. Have you ever seen that person at work, the one who manages to get everyone else in a good mood? Now imagine working on a team like that. Passionate teams have great synergy and often overachieve.
Passionate people are motivated.
Speaking of motivation… those who are highly passionate about their work will be motivated to learn, improve, and accomplish goals. These people often reap amazing benefits personally and professionally.
Passionate people make an impact.
Passion is often connected with Purpose. It means something when you love WHAT you do, you love WHY you do it, you love the people you work with, you love the people you serve, and knowing that has great value.
Having passion, as a leadership value, for what you do will make your life better in more ways than one!
