Steve Jobs was passionate about Apple. He loved, loved, LOVED his work!
Can you say the same thing? Can you say, “I love my job”?
“I Love My Job!”
According to Jobs, being able to say “I love my job” comes from:
- Pursuing big ideas that excite you
- Solving problems that are important to you
- Finding solutions that make a difference
Without these, a job is just a job. Work lacks meaning. And the likelihood you’ll stay commitment to the work is slim.
One other thing. Notice that money, position, power, and prestige are not what made Jobs passionate about his work. He loved his work because of the purpose behind his work. Money, position, power, and prestige were all byproducts of pursuing his purpose, but they were never part of his purpose. A result of his purpose? Yes. The reason behind his purpose? No.
If you love your work, what is it about your job that makes you say, “I love my job”?
If you don’t love your work, what do you think would need to change in order for you to say, “I love my job”?
