Why I’m Thankful to Work in Business

Thursday, November 25th, 2010

Before carving the turkey, I’d like to pause and appreciate. Why I’m grateful to advise business leaders:

  • There’s always something to learn. Every business is unique, facing unique challenges. Cookie-cutter solutions rarely work because they don’t celebrate uniqueness. Uniqueness always gives me opportunities to learn, grow, get better, be challenged…
  • My experience is always relevant. The other side of bullet one is that all businesses share many commonalities. Having acquired 30 years of business experience, I can always find ideas or insights that are relevant. It feels good to add value.
  • Business is a discipline for self development. It’s not like there is a border where work ends and life begins. They are completely mingled. By approaching business with the mindset of self development, it can be a marvelous yoga or meditation. Everyday it confronts me with opportunities to become a better person.
  • Business lets me serve. I enjoy my life, but that’s not enough. I want to leave this world a better place. Business is my vehicle.

Make sense?

Why are you grateful? How does business help you on your path?
