Those tasks become just that: seemingly never-ending tasks. And that can make carrying on not only difficult, but downright discouraging.
We’ve all been there, which is why I urge you to take a step back and look at the big picture. What’s your why? Why do you REALLY do what you do? Why do you wake up early and go that extra mile? Why do you volunteer on top of working a full-time job? What lights that fire in you?
We all have a why, and when things get overwhelming, it’s important to remember what that why is. Write it down. Hang it up at your desk. Make it your computer background. And more importantly, share it with your team. Your why will not only keep you going, but it will make your association better. Trust us! Because what’s done in passion is done well.
Speaking of your why, we’d love to hear what yours is! In fact, we’re hosting a “What’s Your Why?” contest, and the winner will receive a FREE registration to MC LIVE! (plus flight and hotel expenses)! Click here for “What’s Your Why?” contest details.
