According to a new report I heard this morning on CNN, most people do not like their jobs. Only 40% of men, and 20% of women say that they love their jobs. REALLY! So if your staff is 10 people, only 4 of you love what THEY are doing, and the other 6 could easily do something else (Assuming your have an all male staff). That really sucks. I love what I do. I have been blessed to always have jobs that I could jump head first in and enjoy, well, except for bagging groceries at Winn Dixie when I was 15.

If you do not have a passion for what you are doing, you do not love it, why are you wasting your time? Life is to short! It is time to find that thing you have been created to do and will provide you amazing joy! If you have staff members who do not LOVE what they are doing, you are going to end up pulling them instead of pushing with them. Even worse, if as a leader you are not sending people off into their destiny, then you are holding them back from achieving all that God has for their lives. This cycle also sucks, because you are delaying the next group of leaders that God is entrusting you to train up. Most of the time, people are held back based on manipulation or for the fact they make the organization or leader look really good. LET THEM FLY! Build leaders, people who are better than you are, and let them FLY!

I have been blessed to help a few people in my life achieve something that they had never thought they could do, and it is WAY more rewarding than keeping great people in a position that is just GOOD.

So the long and short of today is this: DO YOU LOVE WHAT YOU ARE DOING? If not, it is time to make a change. NOW GO!
