Continuous Improvement

Do you have to or get to?

May 26, 2011

As I drove back to my office from my neighborhood Starbucks this morning, I thought to myself, “Ah, now I get to go to work.”   I paused for a moment and thought how nice that was.  I didn’t say to myself, “I have to go to work.”   What do you say to yourself in the morning?

I hope you get to go to work in the morning.  I hope you love what you do, love how you help your clients, and have some fun in the process. And I hope everyone who works with you feels as though they “get to” go to work in the morning, too.  If you’re doing what you love and are surrounded by the right people, you’ll get to go to work every day.  If not, you’ll have to go to work.  And if you feel like you have to go to work, it’s time to take a look at your life and your practice.

So I say, “Get your “get to” on!”

If you think all of this talk about having fun is just fluffy, mubmo jumbo, take a look at the hard science behind happiness at Shawn Achor’s website or check out his book, The Happiness Advantage.

Have fun!
