Employee engagement thrives on love and gumption.
We need to put our hearts into our work and work into our hearts.
I don’t believe you simply just do what you love and the money will follow but if you don’t love what you do you will be contributing to your own disengagement. It is naive to believe that you will always love what you do but ensure that the majority of your time is devoted to work you love.
Remember that love is an art requiring actions not just a good feeling.
When we do what we love our work must offer value to others…otherwise it will probably just be a hobby.
Work towards having heartfelt and hearty work and don’t shy away from gumption. Erich Fromm reminds us in The Art of Loving that love is an art requiring discipline, concentration, and patience.
What is your level of (love) discipline, concentration, and patience at work?
Do your part, infuse your heart into your work.
