Inspire my work
I'm asked all the time whats next, you have a college degree now are you searching for that dream job. In all honesty my dream job would be home working on my very own terms. I love going to work everyday it's just some days the wish that there was a choice in the matter so I could sleep in just a little bit. I'm still asking myself what my dream job is but I think it's what I make of where I am.
What inspires me is having a person be able to look at my skills give me an assignment and watch me work my magic. Iv'e had a few bosses in my life time like this and I have one now. Giving me creative freedom is a dream come true and it really helps bring out my best. Also knowing that the people you work for trust you is also a great driving factor.
I don't work well being micro managed, when someone is constantly hovering over me correcting my work before I even hit send it just does not turn out well. Now feedback I love but if it's just a picky person it gives me nightmares. My job is just like a relationship I want to make sure my partners trust me.
Writing itself motivates me. I enjoy doing it part time but I will always dream of being able to write on a full time basis. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and experiences with others. Just maybe something I've experienced will help them in everyday life. Also poetry lets me explore so many emotions it's fun just to not be yourself and let all you inner thoughts come alive.
Low on the list but very important is money, I need it we all need it but I can't choose money over happiness. I would take a lower salary for happiness. Having a large family I can't come home with all these extra stresses and not be able to be there for my little people.There are days that I wish I did have a high power position, and could wear my power suit but that dream is short lived.
What I do
Working in accounting is connected to so many different areas of a company the constant research and race for time in many ways keeps me entertained enough to where there's never a dull moment. There is also the fact that keeping a full work load can never be a bad thing it eliminates the the problem of falling off task. My current position motivates me to look for new ways to process data in a faster and more efficient way. Bottom line is just being a nerd for becoming better. Having a positive out look on life also motivates.Don't let the downers at work suck you into their corner .Staying positive gives you that friendly face that will attract more customers, and more friends. There are large numbers of people who are unemployed so being thankful that you have a place to go to and clock in is a pretty big motivator.
