Do you love what you do? Are you doing what you love?
A job is like a relationship. If you are not committed and engaged to doing your best, at 200%, then you might want to reconsider whether you are doing the right thing. Today my friend reminded me how important my job is to me. I love what I do, but most importantly, everyday, I’m given the opportunity to grow. I’m on a graduate professional programme and yet, I am treated as a member of my department, I am accountable for what I write and say in every report or project, and I love it. Above all, I feel that my job is the best learning experience I could ever have. I think that if this were taken away from me, it would be just as hard or harder than a heartbreak. This is why everyday I strive to make myself indispensable. However, I doubt I would have done this if I didn’t get love what I do. It’s crucial I believe, as a junior professional, to be given the chance to grow and excel in something you love. And if you really hate what you do, then try something else! :)
