I think that Confucius said it best, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” When I wake up in the morning, I think what is going on at 5AM today? There are many reasons that I love working at 5AM; however, I decided to limit this post to 3 reasons.
1. I see my boss as a person that I work with, not for. I feel valued, I feel respected, and I feel trusted.
2. The challenge: I solve problems and am able to put my skills to good use. No two days are ever the same and I learn something new every day.
3. Work that matters: My satisfaction comes from doing a job where i feel I can make a difference. For me, helping others and achieving a sense of accomplishment make all of the hard work worthwhile, even if my time exceeded a typical 8 hour workday.
I love coming to work everyday and can’t imagine being anywhere else!
