What is the best thing about you?

'It's high time to make the boss clear that I'm the best employee ever!'

I was asked what was the best thing about me. I answered that I figured out how to do things and then do them.

What is the best thing about you? What do you value most about yourself? We all have things that we do well, but what do you take the most pleasure in? What makes you happy each day to do?

'It's high time to make the boss clear that I'm the best employee ever!'
‘It’s high time to make the boss clear that I’m the best employee ever!’

I have been lucky that my career/jobs have often been what I have wanted to do. Not every day of course. There are always difficult things to do in any IT job. However for the most part I have loved what I have done, and so most of my days working have been a pleasure.

I have seen that many people don’t enjoy what they do and I feel sorry for them. What a hellish existence when people aren’t doing what they love. I always try to encourage people who interact with me to do what they love to do.

Now of course this isn’t to brag but rather to elicit what motivates you each day. Is what you’re doing aligned with your values and beliefs? If not, why? When you can align all parts of you with what you do, it is a pleasure to work.
