What is your job?

Read each question below and take at least 30 seconds to truly contemplate the answer. Don’t rush. You’ll be done in 2 minutes.

  • What does your boss think your job is?
  • What do your direct reports think your job is?
  • What do your colleagues think your job is?
  • What does your family think your job is?

My guess is that none of the answers included:

  • Get a raise
  • Get a promotion
  • Get a better office
  • Get a company car

If you do your job, you might get those. But if you work to get those, you might not be doing your job.
