Destinations are Excuses

"I can't wait until I wrap up this project...As soon as we fill that vacancy everything will turn around...Once the economy bounces back you'll see big changes around here..."

Blah, blah, blah.

What the hell are you waiting for?  Does your Mom still lay your clothes out for you each night too?  How about a nice glass of warm milk before bed?  Is there always an excuse?  I've certainly had my share of them.  Seriously, I'm fired up because of the action going on in my work right now...not some off-in-the-distance-unattainable-corporate-fantasy.

I am fired up.  I've gone head first into a major examination of all things HR in my world, and I'm so geeked out about it that I can't wait to get back to it on Monday.  Sure, I have a vision for how this whole thing will play out, but if I constantly strive for the end point I'm going to miss so many valuable moments along the way.  What about my team's input?  What about my customer's perspective?  What am I missing?  What else can I add to make it even better?

How About You
When was the last time you were really fired up about your work?  Did you let it show?  Could your employees tell that you were serious?  Be passionate about your work, and forget about that destination...they take too long to get too anyway.

I'd love to hear from you.

No Excuses.
