I was having a conversation the other day with a couple of my coworkers. As we sat there talking about who does what here at WSS, our conversation started to lean towards being happy with your career path.
Every single one of us brings something to the table in the job field. Some of us like to have a list of things to do for the day and make sure that we get each and everything checked off that list. Others have an idea of what they want to do for the day and if it gets done, well then it gets done. Some people want to know what is next on their tasks of things to do, while others just want to focus on what is at hand right now. There are pros and cons to being these types of people along with working with these types of people. Each type of personality brings something to the drawing board in any company or business.
When it comes to being happy at work, you want a job that is going to be a right fit for you. If youre the type of person that likes to sit inside and watch TV instead of mowing the grass even when it really needs it, then construction is not the right job for you. If you hate the outdoors and nature, then mowing for the city or a landscaping company is not going to be a good fit for you. Now if you love the outdoors and working long, hard hours, maybe construction is for you. It all comes down to what is going to be the best fit with the talent that you have and what will make you happy.
My challenge for you is to notice the different personalities at your job and really pay attention to how they are an attribute. Instead of seeing the negative of someone being different from you, see the positive of the many different point of views that can truly bring something to the table. This in turn can create cohesive groups of employees and a better, happier place to work at.
