How to Know You Are Doing The Right Job When you close the lid on your computer tonight, there is only one question to ask Success comes from hard work; hard work on doing something you love towards your goal. (Tweet this) We spend a lot of time wondering what the customer wants, delighting the customer...quite rightly. But the easiest way to do that is to be the most loyal customer of what you do. When you are proud of what you do, when you sit down with you coffee at night if you are proud of your work rather than exhausted from merely doing work, then you will be on the right path to convince others. Here is a little checklist to ask yourself to see whether you are proud of your work P = Purpose. You can look at all you did and achieved today and know, really know that you have made a step towards your life's purpose. R = Rewarding. How many times did your work make you smile today and even more importantly, how many times did your work make others smile today? Smiles are a wonderful yardstick for being proud of what you do. O = Own. Did you own your decisions and actions. Hiding behind others does not increase happiness, it decreases your feeling of control. U = Understand. Do you and your team how today's work contributes to the larger goal? D = Dignity. Dignity is such an underused word and yet when people show diginity, they show respect for others. The social media world loves dignity - both in success and in defeat. So were you dignified in all that you did and all that you said today? We may not all be billionaires in terms of money but then I don't strive to be.....that does not guarantee happiness. Strive to be a smile billionaire and allow the world to reward you back!
