23 SECRET TO REDISCOVER DELIGHT AND FULFILLMENT IN YOUR WORK
The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that you are working for somebody else. Job security is gone. The driving force of a career must come from the individual. Remember: Jobs are owned by the company, you own your career!
—Earl Nightingale, motivational speaker
The philosophy for doing this is simple.
You create your own job satisfaction.
This means you cannot rely on your employers to give you all the answers, if indeed they ever could. You need to take actions to ensure you have motivating work, enjoy the environment and your co-workers, and do not overwork yourself and ignore your personal goals. Peter Drucker explores this concept in his excellent article, “Managing Oneself.”
The secret to job satisfaction is simply the intersection between two simple concepts. The first is that your employer needs value from you or the organization will not be interested in giving you jobs and opportunities for growth. The second concept is that you need things from your employer––reasonable income, interesting jobs, worthwhile contributions, and stimulating learning opportunities. When you have these, you are likely to be a productive employee who is interested in staying with the company for the long term.
It is common for people to never feel as if they have found this “sweet spot.” If you are experiencing stress and lack of job satisfaction, then this book is for you. It will give you some ideas, help you take control of your own job satisfaction, and create a win-win relationship with your employer.
