If we’re good at our job, one of the benefits is that we get to do it for a long time and enjoy a lengthy career.
Unfortunately, one of the drawbacks of having a long career is that our job can become monotonous.
And, when we’re bored with something we’re doing, it’s human nature for us to phone it in, giving a half-hearted effort.
One of the best ways to fight the temptation to phone it in is to remember that one day we won’t be able to do our job anymore. We’ll be too old, too sick, physically unable to perform, mentally incapable of working, or people simply won’t want us anymore.
Remembering that every job we do is an opportunity we’re provided with is a helpful way for us to stay on the ball.
Because the ball won’t be around forever.
