Read the story of a woman and reflect on what her problem is
«She was a doctor with a very successful practice. She was extremely busy and making more money than she had dreamed possible. But she was deeply unsatisfied.»
«If I’m honest, I think I became a doctor because my father was a doctor. It was expected. I didn’t think I had a choice,» she confessed. Then her eyes welled with tears.»
«But I hate it,» she continued. «I only get to spend a few minutes with each patient. I feel like a factory worker on a conveyor belt. It’s all I can do to make myself go to work.»
She was good at what she did. Her practice was exploding. But she had lost her passion.»
Mark the criteria that define for you job satisfaction and answer the questions below
• How are all the points you’ve marked related to your personality?
• Would you agree with the following model? Does it work for your current job?
1. Passion. If your heart is not in your work, you have a job but not a calling.
2. Proficiency. Passion alone is not enough. You have to be good at what you do. Being good enough will not give you the satisfaction you desire. You have to excel at your craft and be awesome. Mastery is the goal.
3. Profitability. To enjoy a successful career, people must be willing to pay you for what you do. You don’t have to get rich, but there must be a market for your product or service. Otherwise, your career is not sustainable.
