FIND THE FUN IN YOUR FIELD

By Michelle LaBrosse, PMP®, Chief Cheetah and Founder of Cheetah Learning, and Kristen LaBrosse, CAPM®, Co-Author

Roberto ALBORGHETTI – “No Clouds”, Canvas/Mixed Media, 70×47 – Lacer/actions Project/Images of Torn and Decomposed Publicity Posters

Passionate Pauline is driving down the boulevard in the early morning, whistling to the tune “Oh Happy Day” with a big smile on her face, ready to take on the day with a vengeance and excited to tackle any challenges that may come her way. In the next lane over, Sullen Sue is sulking, and somehow stuck in the slow lane … again! Things don’t typically go her way, she dislikes her job, and she’s dreading the mounting paperwork that is piling up on her desk.

Which driver’s seat would you rather be in every workday morning, 52 weeks a year, for the odd 40 working years of your life? Your career is an endeavor that requires a great deal of your time, energy, and focus. If you’re sitting in Sullen Sue’s driver’s seat, only you can change directions to find a career that ignites the passion in you and makes you find the fun in your field.

Don’t let society define your role.  Why did you choose the career you are currently in? Did it seem like the “thing to do” after you graduated college? Or did you have some time to introspectively analyze your innate strengths and interests, and decide on a career path based on that?

As a single mom, I have heard all types of stories of how hard my life must be. This role as a struggling victim didn’t quite suit me, however, and instead of focusing on what others expected of me in my “role,” I focused on how I could best create a life for my children and myself in the best way I knew how. We are all unique individuals with strengths and assets that direct us to a special purpose in life.  Fuel your career growth by doing your thing, regardless of what society says you can or can’t do.

Change Your Job Description. Who knows you better – the HR director who hired you while they were interviewing 40 other candidates, or YOU? We all have parts of our job that we love, and other parts that we hate. Chances are, the person sitting in the next office space is in the same boat. What you see as boring and tedious, another might regard as satisfying and even fun. In order to create a job description that fits like a glove, make sure to keep an open and honest dialogue with your peers, subordinates, and mangers about what work keeps you energized vs. which work sucks your life force.

Be Proactive.  The happiest workers are those who have a strong sense of control over what they’re doing and why their efforts are important to a company’s mission. If you don’t like the projects you’ve been assigned, be more proactive in seeking your roles in projects – it never hurts to ask.

If there is a certain process that you find to be cumbersome, tedious, and (in your opinion) useless, take the initiative to change it to improve it. Your work is your world, and the more waves you make that are of your own initiative, the more fun you will have. So don’t sit idly by hoping things will get better – jump to it!

Smell the Roses. At the end of the day, we all want to feel that we’ve accomplished something of importance – that we’ve been an asset to our employers, made the world a better place, come a step closer to solving poverty, and all that before lunch if we can. But the truth is we are all human, and sometimes our best intentions can lead to us neglecting what keeps us going.

Every day, make sure to take some time for just yourself to re-energize and refocus so that you can go back to work ready to take on the world’s problems. Try taking a quick walk at lunch and smell the roses. On the busier days simply allow yourself to get up from you computer, and take five minutes to focus on your breathing and to stretch. You owe it to yourself, not to mention your organization, to be at your best. So put it in your Google calendar if you have to, and take your breaks!

We all have the decision every day – which driver’s seat do we want to be in – Sullen Sue’s or Passionate Pauline’s? Whatever your decision, make sure you are making it consciously and with intention. And remember, the Passionate Paulines have more fun!

Videoclip at YouTube Channel

SOCIAL COMMUNICATION / “MYDADDY” CLIP GOES AROUND THE WORLD SAYING: “STOP ACCIDENTS AT WORK!”

It’s really going around the world, gaining an amazing record of views, in all Continents.

It’s MYDADDY (WOUNDED SO MUCH) clip, which shows pupils talking about accidents at work that involve their parents. The video is dedicated to the 10th edition of “First in Safety”, an Italian social campaign sponsored by Rossini Trading Spa, Anmil  and Okay! Magazine. All this is an interesting and unusual phenomenon. A short and poor video – not supported by media productions or by hundreds of thousands of euro investements – is shared by dozens and dozens of websites, which have embedded it also through YouTube.

MYDADDY (WOUNDED SO MUCH)  clip is an original and particular contribution given to one of the most dramatic phenomena affecting Italy and even the so called civilized world.

ABOUT THE VIDEO

1,170 deads. And over 775,000 injuries. These are the numbers of the dramatic “war report” about a year (2011) of accidents at works in Italy. These numbers are impressive. As if we were at war. For this reason it is urgent to raise voice and the guard. Even with a message. How it does “MYDADDY”, a delicate and passionate videoclip which supports “FIRST IN SAFETY” (Primi in Sicurezza”) a national social campaign for the prevention of accidents at work which invites schools and young people to face the problem. This campaign – at its 10th edition – is promoted by ROSSINI TRADING Spa, ANMIL (the italian Association for injured people) and OKAY! monthly magazine. It’s unique in Italy and Europe and maybe in the global world (at least for continuity, originality and effectiveness). “MyDaddy” clip – created by Roberto Alborghetti – was made with the collaboration of “P.Mazzi” Primary School and Piancastagnaio Municipality (Siena) and Osa Onlus Association. So, thanks to the pupils who participated to the video production in a spontaneous and improvised way.

Here we point out only some of the links to related sites that are sharing the clip, which is online at Youtube and Vodpod
