Your team members may not be fired up at work for the reasons you think they are! What are their priorities? While at work, do they align with the exciting purpose of your business? For that matter, does your business have an exciting – and worthy – purpose?
If you’re a leader, it's your role to provide purpose and direction, then get your team fired up about it! It's about engaging hearts and minds, not just hands and feet. If you work on a team, it's up to you to find a worthwhile reason to be there, beyond a pay check. The days are otherwise long and unfulfilling.
Much is said and written about Work-Life Balance. The reality is that, for most of us, work is part of life and vice versa. The idea is to “be there”, in the moment, whether you're at work or somewhere else. The balance part is about that relationship, not thinking about balancing on a skateboard – unless, of course, you're working on that frontside 180 kickflip or another move!
To be fired up about where you are and what you're doing is to Maximize the Moment.
