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.
