Joy in the Mundane
The other day I started an exciting task:
The process of backing up all of my GoPro images and videos on the ICloud Drive.
Thank you the Lord I have already have my content files on the iCloud.
As I was doing this mundane task, I had a thought.
I would rather do a mundane task for my hobby or side hustle than for corporate America.
File management for my blog and content is not fun but it is rewarding. It is contributing to building a foundation. A foundation of freedom.
No matter what company you work for, big or small, you are replaceable. All that hard work you put in, is for someone else's vision.
This makes leadership that much more important. How you treat people makes a difference.
Some companies, look at their people as robots or numbers. Sure, they say they value you. They throw vacation time, merit raises, and bonuses in the pot. You name a benefit, they have it. It is the corporate trap. At the end of the day, they will and can replace you.
Other companies truly value their people. They see them as their heart and soul of the organization. People are their most valuable asset. Without people, they wouldn't be in business.
A lot of us work for a company that does not value people. Learn and grow as much as you can, and start your own brand to love people.
Remember that if you don't build your vision, someone else will hire you to help build theirs.
Be that leader that makes people want to be a part of your vision for reasons other than employee benefits.
Build your own vision and take joy in the mundane tasks in the process.
