Good job?

One way to approach your work: “I come in on time, even a little early. I do what the boss asks, a bit faster than she expects. I stay on time and on budget, and I’m hardworking and loyal.”

The other way: “What aren’t they asking me to do that I can do, learn from, make an impact, and possibly fail (yet survive)? What’s not on my agenda that I can fight to put there? Who can I frighten, what can I learn, how can I go faster, what sort of legacy am I creating?”

Two different attitudes?  Which do you have yourself?  Which do you ask of your employees?  Do they match?

I work with a lot of top notch church leaders.  I know none that operate under the first framework?

In fact, I don’t know of any churches that are tearing it up that have staff that work under the first framework either?

Are you workin’ hard, or hardly workin’?

Do you love your job or loathe it?
