Be Someone Who is Engaged with Work, Not Someone Who Avoids Work

by seo on March 30, 2010

Career Mission’s Chief Executive Officer, A. Harrison Barnes, in a webinar as he discussed the importance of engaging in work, being grateful for it, and enjoying it.

The world is filled with people who do not love the work they do, feel compelled to do their jobs and resent everything about their work. It’s not an unusual thing and keeps happening all the time. Pilots surfing the Internet while flying an airplane, stewardesses trading coupons and complaining about their jobs on a flight, an executive with a major airline outraged for being expected to work during business hours, the airport shuttle bus driver who had figured out how to not work and get paid at the same time, are all examples that Harrison cites to bring to the forefront how people are constantly avoiding work. Are you one of them? Or are you one of those who work hard and love what they are doing? If you find yourself avoiding work, then you are probably in the wrong job. Looking for reasons not to be productive, and distracting yourself with other things is a very bad sign.

You need to ask yourself and understand completely whether you see your work as good or bad. Your work, your satisfaction, and your engagement with your work will largely be a product of how you see your work. In conclusion, Harrison states that it is totally your choice – you can be engaged in your work and enjoy it, or you can avoid work and despise it. Those who are constantly avoiding work will never amount to anything and will never go ahead in life. Their life will be marked by frustration, pain and negativity. They cause trouble for companies, collectively force bankruptcies, and are the first to be laid off. You do not want to be like them. You wish to work, and learn, and grow. Be someone who is engaged in work, love your work, and be grateful for it.
