The Lost and Found


Daily Prompt: Sixteen Tons

How do you feel about your job? Do you spring out of bed, looking forward to work? Or, is your job a soul-destroying monotony of pure drudgery, or somewhere in between?

I don’t know if I even think about my job in that manner. I have spent a few years doing some work that I didn’t appreciate and that has turned out to be one of my biggest regrets. I missed what I could’ve learned from the jobs that I didn’t like. I have discoveredthat buried in the jobs that I didn’t like were principles that are both practical and universal. These principles that I didn’t learn until later changed my perspective, and now I’ve learned to make the best of wherever I am.

I learned the difference between a  good job and a bad job is matter of perspective. I have creative control over what I feel, think and glean. No, I don’t control what happens but I do control how I approach and respond to what is happening. The are a few questions I have learned to ask myself about any job.

1. How can I use my gifts and talents here?

2. What can I learn from being here that will make me better socially, emotionally and professionally?

3. If this is just a stopping point, what do I want to walk away having learned?
