Are You in Your Job to Do Something, Or for Something To Do?

Are You in Your Job to Do Something, Or for Something To Do?What is your Vision for your organization? Can you envision what the ideal and unique future is for your team? Try asking these questions of yourself:

· Are you in your job to do something of for something to do?

· What about your job is important to you, your team, your organization, to those who use your product or service?

· What would give your work real meaning and purpose – inspire you to come to work everyday full of energy and enthusiasm?

· What legacy would you aspire to leave when it’s time to move to a new opportunity?

· What is your vision theme?
