Do You Care Enough About Your Work?

How may times have you already been asking yourself if you cared enough about the work you are doing right now?
Honestly I have been doing it many times and most probably you did too. You don’t need to be a freelancer to care enough about your work. Anybody can and should care enough about the work he/she is doing.

Did you already ask yourself the question; “What do you want to do?”

Not your job, but your work, now, tomorrow, and in the future.

Well, if you are struggling to answer these questions I recommend you start following Seth Godin who tells you to make something happen. I just signed up to his latest project “The Freelancer Course” and you should too if you want to make something happen and if you care enough about your work!

If you also sign up, please reach out to me so can learn from each other and we can contribute to the community.

Will you sign up?

Enjoy,

Quotes from Seth Godin:

Art is frightening. Art isn’t pretty. Art isn’t painting.

But art is who we are and what we do and what we need.

Hardcovers: Six Pixels of Separation: Everyone Is Connected. Connect Your Business to Everyone
by Mitch Joel (Affiliate link) Back in 2004 when I started following Mitch Joel I immediately knew this entrepreneur had something to say I wanted to listen to. Reading his book has been a great experience on how to connect online with your customers, colleagues and your competitors.

Building and sustaining a culture that’s for the Now Revolution takes devotion. Jay Baer & Amber Naslund provide you with lots of actionable insights.
Linchpin: Are You Indispensable?
by Seth Godin (Affiliate link) – This paragraph from his book says it all. Seth Godin says: “I don’t write my blog to get anything from you in exchange. I write it because giving my small gift to the community in the form of writing make me feel good. I enjoy it that you enjoy it. When that gift comes back to me, in an unexpected way, I enjoy the I did twice as much.” This summarizes the way all got started for me. Thank you Seth.
Trust Agents: Using the Web to Build Influence, Improve Reputation, and Earn Trust
by Chris Brogan & Julien Smith (Affiliate link) – Using the web to build influence, improve reputation, and earn trust. Do I need to say anything more? I highly respect the authors Chris Brogan & Julien Smith.
