Did you take the opportunity to complete the Intentionomics At Work Self Assessment?

This will have given you some clarity around the areas you can concentrate on during this eCourse.

Just to remind you, the purpose of this eCourse is to help you work on who you need to be (your strength of character) and what you need to do (your intentional actions) to enjoy your time at work and to be even more successful……__it’s important to keep focused on the purpose of this eCourse and the benefits to you, your colleagues, your managers, your company and your clients__.

In this third eClass you’re going to define what work really means for you – what a prosperous work life means for you, and you’ll consider what I refer to as the bigger WHY of your work role(s).

The simple and practical reason you need to define what work really means for you is unless you do, you’re choosing to just work in a reactive state, rather than a proactive state.

If you choose to turn up and react to whatever work environment you’re faced with on a daily basis, this will over time cause you frustration, reduce your capacity to do your work well and disengage you from your potential to enjoy your time at work and to achieve your potential success.

Whereas, if you choose to proactively define what work really means for you and to think clearly about your bigger WHY of your work role(s), you are taking ownership and accountability for making the most of your time at work for you and for others – you’re taking ownership and accountability to focus on what’s in your control, and to respond appropriately to what’s not in your control.

It’s important to realise that how you define what work really means for you may potentially change over time. As you gain more experience, learn new skills, build your knowledge, develop broader relationships and take on new life roles (business and personal), your perspective and purpose can change.

So in this eClass, you’ve got the opportunity to ask yourself a question that many around you will not have asked, or at least not considered for a long time…..and that question is…..Just what does work really mean for you?

To help you gain clarity here, please consider your answers to the following questions:

A Prosperous Work Life Self Analysis

Your truth about you (strength of character)
1. To what degree are you happy with your personal strength of character (your truth about you)?

2. If you were to work on your personal strength of character, what would you need to change?

3. If your personal strength of character was what you wanted it to be, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)?

Your work role(s)
4. To what degree are you happy with how well you are doing in your work role(s)?

5. If you were to improve your level of enjoyment and success in your work role(s), what would you need to change?

6. If you were achieving what you wanted to achieve in your work role, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)?

Inner voice

7. When are the times and situations where you know you have not reacted or responded well at work?

8. If you were to better handle certain situations at work what would you need to change?

9. If you were to better handle these situations, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)?

Success habits

10. To what degree have you developed and put into practice habits of success?

11. What habits of success do you know you would still like to develop?

12. If you developed these habits of success, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)?

Goals
13. To what degree are you ‘happy’ with your work role accomplishments so far?

14. To what degree have you set and are working toward achieving specific work goals (other than those being set for you by your manager)?

15. If you were to set and work toward achieving a work goal or goals, (other than those being set for you by your manager) what would they be?

16. If you were to set and work toward achieving that goal or goals, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)??

Trust relationships

17. To what degree do you believe you do what needs to be done to build trust in your business relationships (colleagues, management, clients)?

18. If you were to work on building more trust into your business relationships what would you need to do?

19. If you were to earn more trust and build stronger trust relationships, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)??

Learning

20. To what degree would you say you have a thirst for learning?

21. If you were to develop a greater thirst for learning, what would you want to learn?

22. If you were to develop your thirst for learning, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)??

Feeding Your Creativity

23. To what degree would you say you have activities at work where you are passionate, creative and lose yourself in the moment?

24. If you were to develop or pursue an activity or activities that would light your passion, creativeness, and lose yourself in the moment, what would you pursue?

25. If you were to develop and pursue an activity or activities that would light your passion, creativeness, and lose yourself in the moment, how would your work life be more prosperous (enjoyable and successful)?

I realise that some of these questions may not be that easy for you to answer. You may even find them a little ‘soft’. In reality, there’s nothing soft about these questions – that’s why many people find them so hard to answer.

It is in the questions you ask of yourself that will help you to arrive at your truth about you – and that will be the focus of your next eClass.

The purpose of this eClass has been to help you gain clarity about what you need to do, to become the person you need to be, to take accountability for your success at work, and the level of enjoyment and satisfaction you can experience during your time at work.

That’s why it’s an inescapable truth for a prosperous work life that you need to define what a prosperous work life means for you – unless you do, how can you ever be working toward experiencing it?

As I’ve just mentioned above, in your next eClass you’ll take what you’ve considered here, and gain clarity about your truth about you and the impact that your truth has on experiencing a prosperous work life.

My very best to you,

David
