Have you ever felt your work was routinary? Spending hours and hours of working and everything stays the same? Because of this feeling, you may find yourself seeking new challenges in your daily work. Have you ever thought about what your colleagues were doing? Or what could you do to be more productive? Or to be more attracted to what you do?

If any of your answers to the above questions is YES, you probably already thought about one of these options:

  • Keeping the status quo 
  • Finding another seat or moving

Before taking any option, think about entrepreneurs. They are probably alone starting their own business. They need to be in charge of everything and have all things under control. They are personally the big bosses, who take the most complex decisions. Even more, they are also the administrators, who pay taxes, prepares reports and runs to the bank. He’s in charge of sales, preparing quotes, making presentations and trying to sell what they make them. Their own marketing department, their own developer, and so on.

So, why can’t we do the same in our daily work? And I don’t mean to run our own business (this is not for everyone) but to commit with the entire process. To really be part of a successful company and being the entrepreneur of our particular story at work. Spending time with other colleagues, sharing our concerns, asking about their own and being committed with other teams. Trying to use different shoes and testing yourself in different scenarios.

“Being a fish out of the water is tough, but that’s how you evolve” – Kumail Nanjiani

According to the Cambridge dictionary:

 COMMIT: very willing to give your time and energy to something (a cause).

 EVOLVE: to develop someone gradually.

Then, if we want is to be valued generators and grow professionally, it’s essential to commit to our work, teammates, and with ourselves. When you put your energy as the entrepreneur does, you will understand the end to end process of what we all do. Probably, you will be a master of a simple link in the chain, but you will know the value you’re adding and will force yourself to deliver everything with excellence.  

“There’s a difference between interest and commitment. When you’re interested in doing something, you do it only when it’s convenient. When you’re committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.” – Kenneth Blanchard

In our times of constant change, one of the most important things for our personal and professional development is not to be at a standstill. Time is the most important commodity that we have, so don’t waste it being routinary. Status Quo is the enemy. To beat it is necessary to interact with your environment, commit yourself to your colleagues and evolve. That’s the best way of moving forward as a professional and, of course, to be happy at work!

 

Just a graphic example of being committed with a cause is the bacon and eggs sandwich. For doing that, the chicken is just involved but the pig…. he’s really fully committed!
