A Gallop survey found that 70% of employees are bored at work. The data appears to be solid as separate studies find that only about 30% of adults are “engaged” with their work.
It’s not much better for the managers who are supposed to be inspiring employees - only 35% of managers are engaged!
If you’re among this group that bored then it’s time to do something about it.
Life is too short to be bored.
To reignite excitement you need somewhere to go.
You need to have a plan.
When you have somewhere meaningful to go - you are pulled forward into the day. Each day is an opportunity to get closer to your destination.
This past week - I found myself awake at 4:00 in the morning. I was so excited about a new program we are developing that I just couldn’t sleep. I poured a cup of Brain Brew coffee and started writing. When I looked up it was 6:30. I was so engaged, so immersed so excited that I had only taken a few sips of the coffee.
You need somewhere to go with your life and your business that is so exciting you can hardly sleep.
In business speak you need a strategic plan that excites you. When companies or individuals don’t have a destination - or have a boring strategic plan they create boring innovations.
So what are you waiting for?
Where do you want to go?
What is your next destination?
Get Up - Get Out - Get Going!
