RULE 8: Enjoy What You Are Doing

Famous & Compassionate Pilot, Captain Chris Najomo of Arik  Air Plc

If
you’re not enjoying yourself, what are you doing?  If there is no entertainment value in your
work then there really is no point in doing it – you can probably get enough in
unemployment benefit to survive.  I think
there are an awful lot of people out there who really do enjoy working but are
frightened to say so in case they get accused of being workaholics or sad or
something.

There
is no shame in saying you enjoy your work. 
There seems to be some kudos in being miserable at work, in moaning
about your situation.  There is a sort of
office pecking order where people try to outdo each other in moaning about how
much they hate their work.
Not
for you there’s not.  The
Rules
Player enjoys work and makes sure people know that.  Once you acknowledge that work is fun and for
you it is even more fun than for anyone else – you will find your step
lightens, your stress levels decrease and your whole demeanor lightens. By
admitting work is fun you are trading in a secret bit of knowledge that only
really successful people usually have.  ‘Work
is fun’ engrave it on your heart.

“THERE IS NO SHAME IN SAYING YOU ENJOY YOUR WORK.”

Having
a good time at work and realizing work is good isn’t the same thing.  Work being good means you take pride in what
you do, enjoy the challenge, and look forward to each day with optimism and
enthusiasm. Having a good time at work means; not achieving much, talking a
lot, winding up colleagues and drinking champagne all afternoon. There is a
different I’m sure you will agree. 
Having a good time at work is a temporary thing. It lasts while the fun
lasts but quickly flags once the excitements, the elation has worn off.
Work
being good means enjoying the negotiating, the hiring and firing, the day to
day challenges, the stresses and disappointments, the uncertain future, the
testing of one’s mettle, the new learning curves. A surprising number of people
die within a year of retirement – this suggests that it’s more important to our
existence than we think.
If
you ain’t enjoying all this and appreciating that it is enjoyable then you are
doomed to be one of the moaners, one of life’s victims.
