My favorite newsletter writer, Alan Weiss of Summit Consulting, sent his December newsletter to me. I love reading it. He is witty, informative and a pleasure to read. He is a fabulous book author and the consultant’s consultant. As you can tell I am a fan. Anyway, in the December newsletter he made a comment that struck me as a great approach to viewing your work. When you are thinking about work ask yourself “Do I enjoy my work as much as a dog enjoys chasing a ball?” If you are not getting that kind of pleasure from what you do maybe it is time to look for a “new ball” to chase!
