When someone asks you what you’re working on, are you excited to talk about it?

My friend sure wasn’t.  A good friend of mine recently left his place of employment, a large, international company, after 20+ years of service.  He had a great position and was very well paid.

Why did he leave?  The truth is, he was wasting away.  He was no longer challenged by the work and he felt disprespected.  He was no longer engaged.

Are you wasting away in your current job?  What toll is it taking on your life, your career, your body, and your family?

No matter what your job is, no matter where you work, there’s always a way to create an exciting project (on weekends if necessary), where something that might make a difference is right around the corner.

Go. Create it. Get excited.  You’ll be amazed at how great you feel and how much energy you get back into your life.

Your family and friends will thank you.
