There’s no point wasting any more time doing something you don’t like. It will only hold you back from achieving happiness, and you’ll never be able to be the best you can be.
Manchester (PRWEB UK) 24 May 2013
People in business need to spend some time researching themselves in order to discover what their true values are, and whether they really find their work fulfilling, Kenny Goodman has said in a new Find the Edge article.
The business website's founder uses the article to send out a rallying call to those trapped doing work they don't enjoy on a daily basis.
He said: "Whether you like it or not, you’re defined by your values and morals. Many people try to separate their business and personal lives as much possible, but you can only do this to a certain extent.
"You may feel like a different person at home to the one you are at work, but your values should remain consistent throughout. If you persist with pushing them to one side while working, it’s only going to be a matter of time before there’s some kind of collision.
"At the very least, it’s going to be hitting your levels of engagement, innovation and productivity."
While acknowledging making a change of this magnitude is unlikely to be a simple process, he warns against simply settling for second best because of a fear of failure.
Instead, Goodman suggests adapting the product or service an individual provides.
He said: "You don’t need to make wholesale changes, you can simply adapt what you’re currently doing to suit your values and be a true reflection of who you really are.
"Are you serving your customers or just taking from them? On the flipside, are there people taking advantage of you, and is it time to finally put a stop to it?
"It may be difficult, but there’s no point wasting any more time doing something you don’t like. It will only hold you back from achieving happiness, and you’ll never be able to be the best you can be if you’re dragging your feet throughout your career."
