A professional perspective – raise your game
It is often said in business that everyone is 'replaceable.' This is a true statement. It is also true that each of us brings our own unique set of skills, attributes and experiences to the our
life’s work. It does not matter what industry you are in, it is important to be relevant, collaborative and competent as well as continue to add value to your company. There is also a way to stand out without burning out.
Raising your professional game doesn’t mean you suddenly have to double your workload, try to lead every project or work longer hours. There is one simple, yet wildly effective technique you can use to raise your game and increase the value you bring to the work place without exhausting yourself.
Start with the simple question of why do I do what I do? In the book Start With Why, Simon Sinek speaks about the importance of understanding the why behind everything we do. This is critical, as it drives our desire to be the best or the worst at everything that we do. Starting with the why will change your perspective. You will feel inspired to want to stay focused on activities and behaviors that move you closer to your goals. The "why" can be the most important question great leaders asks themselves.
Everyone from Steve Jobs to Martin Luther King, Jr. has had their "why" firmly in mind as they led themselves as well as their teams to exceptional results. You can do the same.
