small jobs

Monday, February 23, 2009

Do you ever feel that you will never advance in your life or career and get that opportunity to do something BIG? Don't doubt the importance and impact on doing the smaller jobs in life! The key to this quote is being consistent--despite the level (or lack of) glamour or grandeur of your work. If you must scrub toilets, make them the shiniest, cleanest darn toilets on the block! In all things do the best you can, whether someone is looking or not. If you want to succeed in life, it is important that you have a strong foundation of consistent, hard work. Don't dodge the smaller tasks in an effort to hold out for the glamorous, important jobs. Put value in the small things and you'll reap a huge reward when you're put to the test!

    Not only a good lesson there, but very valuable information. In this day and age, the way the economy is, you have to do what you can to survive. I wished a lot of kids could read this. I know kids that have been out of school now for 2 years that are too good to work in McDonalds flipping burgers. They want jobs that "Pay more", but would rather sit home making NOTHING! It doesn't make since. This day in time, people think they should make 6 digits with no education or very little at that.

    I'm always saying that you can't look at things as tasks, but opportunities!

    You never know who you are going to run into or meet along the way. And you don't know who you are going to impress, or when, so you always have to do your best!
