These Simple Steps Can Change Your Perspective

Some people are fortunate; they find meaning in the work that they do. Others have to dig a little deeper to experience a sense of significance in their everyday tasks. If that sounds like you, here are four ways you can find greater meaning at work — no matter what your role.

  1. Start by asking yourself, “How can I be more creative, efficient and effective?” Where possible, devise ways to make your mundane processes better, more interesting and productive.
  2. Don’t just see problems, find solutions. Offer ideas for improvements based on your unique vantage point.
  3. Learn how your company’s products and services help the end user. In your mind, connect what you do to making your customers’ lives better.
  4. Deepen your knowledge of the company, the industry and your functional area. Understanding how things are connected can bring about new appreciation for the part you play – be it large or small.
