Most people don’t think about the impact they have on others at work. That’s not a character flaw, that’s just not how we’re trained to think about work.
If you think about your ripple effect on your colleagues, that can help you find meaning and purpose in unexpected places.
Think about how you impact others when you do your job well. How does that impact your boss, your peers, your company, your clients?
If you REALLY want to tune into your impact, think about the impact on others when you DON’T do your job well! How might that ruin someone’s day? How might that impact how THAT person interacts with their family?
If you imagine yourself as a beacon of impact, how do your words and actions effect the world?
The goal in this thought experiment is so you can see what you do in a new light. See how that impact connects to your values, or not. And, inspire YOURSELF to grow joy at work for others.
