Good things come to those who wait.
I think that needs a tweak.
Good things come to those who work.
Change three letters = huge impact.
Waiting’s ok. I agree that patience is a virtue.
But honestly, how long can you keep waiting for something to change when you know the secret is to get on and do the work?
I’m fundamentally lazy. I need to create projects, ideas, tools and techniques to encourage me to take action.
Here are five ideas I have front of mind.
I hope they create some sparks and excite you about doing the work:
Learning and Growth Opportunities:
Work provides a platform for continuous learning and skill development, allowing you to expand your knowledge and expertise.
Creativity and Innovation:
Many jobs involve creative problem-solving and innovation, allowing you to express your ideas and find novel solutions. It could be argued that there is nothing like hard work to develop your creativity.
Completing tasks, projects and goals at work can bring a sense of achievement and pride, boosting self-confidence.
Making a Difference:
Many jobs contribute to making a positive impact on individuals, communities, or even the world at large, providing a sense of purpose and fulfilment. There’s nothing quite like saying, ‘I did that’.
If you add value you’ll be paid. Provide a lot of value and you’re paid… more!
