“I can’t make a difference.”
This is a regular complaint I hear from people who are not satisfied with their jobs.
Is that really true?
Can you bring positive energy and influence your work environment? Can you really listen (to your colleague, to your boss, to your customer), and make the person be heard and seen? Can you connect with them in a deeper level? Can you do something differently? Maybe answer an e-mail with a unique loving note or speak up in a meeting and appreciate the work of your colleagues? Can you deepen your knowledge of your work? Can you envision the future?
What do you think of the options above? What other options can you create?
What difference can you make?
