Finding Inspiration at Work

For some people out there the last thing you would be inspired by is your job. But you will be surprised just how much inspiration you can find with the people you work with or work for. Next time you go into work think about those around you. Try to find out a bit more about what they do as well as their personal hobbies and passions they might have.

Ownership & Management

Also, take some time to find out more about the management and ownership. Sometimes we may be a bit stand-offish because ownership is above us and thus never accessible (might be the case but it doesn’t hurt to find out more about them if you are interested.) How are they connected to the community? Are they engaged in worth while activities? What is the history of the organization/company you work for? You may be surprised what you will find out.

It’s about people

Like anything or everything in our society people are essential components of the organization or company you are part of–that means it is very important to both help and learn from your fellow peers. Inspiration is about people! As noted before when you get to know more about a co-worker you will find out what inspires them. Maybe its a charitable cause or they are part of club that helps people. In turn, people will learn what drives you. This is extremely important because when we know more about a co-worker or a peer we have a better understanding in the way they are and their thought process behind what they do.

Inspiring others

Sometimes you need to step it up and become a source of inspiration in your work place. Find a common thread and carefully tied each one of your peers together building the unit a little bit closer. Activities are great ways to get people out of their shells and participating as well as fund raisers or community-based initiatives.
