但你是在做你的工作嗎?

(從我的一個喜歡與尊敬的作家,賽斯 高汀) 這是一個提示:你真正的工作可能不是你想像的那樣。 有些醫生可能會認為他們的工作是治療疾病。 但事實上,這不是能讓病人一直來找你的原因。治愈是一個目標,這很重要,但這還不夠。 技術任務也很重要,但工作涉及的不止於此。 有些醫生為學術界做出貢獻,他們風度翩翩,總是花點時間為患者來做情感上的勞動,他們投入找員工和培訓,並將他們的辦公室放在醫療界好找的十字路口上,這羣醫生總是會比其他不做這些額外工作的醫生要做得更好。 對於那些認為工作只是輸入好的代碼的網頁設計師,或僅僅專注於食物的餐館老闆來說,情況也是如此。這些基本是很重要,但是今天工作的內容已遠遠超過典型職位描述中的內容 做你的工作並不總是和光做份內工作一樣。“憑感覺東西”可能比你想像的更重要。做這項工作是你購買的門票,用門票以獲得做其他部分的特權。
