How do you know you like what you're doing?
I hear a lot around me: you must like what you do. Okay, I get it. I don't know if I agree, but let's say.
What do I think? Lust comes from eating. And then the question I ask myself is: What would I like to eat all my life? How do I apply to the topic? how do you know you like what you do I ask the following question: what should I do? Maybe it will work and I don't want to be in a business or a job for which I would give '70% of my potential.
To answer this question, I reduce every business idea I have or job, which I dream of, to the foundation. For example, if I want to become a carrier. Then the fundamental job here is driving. So if you want to know if you like to do a business in transport, ask yourself if you would like to drive all your life and you would be willing to do it for free. If the answer is yes, then consider a transportation business or a dispatcher position. If not here's a new product just for you! That is, you will have mediocre results and you will think all your life: do I like what I do? Without changing anything. Without doing that you would achieve results that are directly proportional to your potential.
I know it's simple. But not simplistic. When the first idea came to me, I thought it was too simple to use. Over time, I realized that there is a simple solution to everything, and the process of implementing the solution is complex, but it is possible. Complicated solutions are in the area of simplistic approaches. That's why we never get to implement a complicated solution, even if our brain likes to keep turning it on all sides. You know why? Because it's more convenient to do nothing. Very strange! Instead of doing what we love, we end up doing something, but we keep asking ourselves: do I like what I do?
So. What business ideas do you have? What is the basic job of that idea?
Then ask yourself: Would I like to do this for the rest of my life? Would I do that basic job for free?
I know, you're going to say you hire people for what you don't like to do. But how do you motivate them to do what you don't like?
