Are you a Factory Worker?

“Factory workers” follow process.  Factory workers have a schedule.  Factory workers are told what to do and when to do it.  This sounds a lot like what many of us do every day.  The unfortunate part of this is that it takes the innovation, creativity, fun and ultimately, value creation out of our “jobs”.  This is not what I want to do.  Is this what you want?

It is true that we need rules and process but we also must have innovation, creativity and fun in our jobs.  Without this there is no passion and without passion for what we do we can’t be great.  We won’t become Our Best.

So, what to do?  I encourage all of us to look for the opportunities to try new things, new ideas and new perspectivesin our “jobs”.  I meet people every day that are doing extraordinary things – “ordinary” people doing extraordinary work because they choose to be special – to have passion for what they do.

How are you going to be special today?
