Concentrate On Performance

The benefit of working in the field you love is that you work harder.  If you're stuck working a job you hate it can be very difficult to connect desire to the task at hand.  You'll cringe at your employer's request for any given task.

There are two ways of dealing with this.  Either, you decide to begin working in a field that defines you, or learn to love what you do.  It's not everyone's ambition to create an empire of their own.  That's okay.  The first obstacle to over come is your conversation.  We love expressing hate for our jobs and this ultimately creates the resentment we feel.  Find things about it that you love.  Like, why you started working there in the first place. (Money is the motivating factor for most of us... not so motivating when you're stuck exchanging your life for a little money.)

After you've got on board and love what you do it's time to check performance.  We all love our comfort zones.  We do our jobs daily and nothing more.  We're comfortable with that, because it gives a sense of security.  But how many of us would love to get raises on a regular basis?  Maybe a little recognition for performing our daily tasks?  Of course we would.  But have we earned it?

Concentrating on your performance will cause you to stand out more than other employees.  Another way of putting this is... step your game up.  Find a way to make your performance better everyday.  Make a game out of it.  See how much you can do in one day, then try to beat it the next day.  What? Doesn't sound fun?  Nothing's fun when you don't like what you do.  That's why it's extremely important to find what you love and do it!  If you love what you do, you'll have no problem performing this.

Another wonderful adjustment we all can make is to take our focus off money.  That's right! Don't think about money when you're performing a job for someone.  If you're worried about how much you're getting paid, chances are your creative levels are idle.  Your work represents you.  It tells your story to everyone who sees it.  Who cares what other employees or competition are saying.  More than likely they're not happy either.  Honestly, do you want to take advice from someone that's not happy in life?

It's funny when I think of how simple the advice for becoming happy is.  Find what you love, and do it.
