The boss sent me to one of those seminars today. It was not like a lot of the ones that you hear about, because quite often people will let you sign in and then you can slip away and go do what you want. A lot of the time they have these things at places like Las Vegas and obviously you can find more entertaining ways to fill your time. This was out in the country, and the big thing was about employee engagement surveys. It was obviously not the sort of thing that is intended to be skipped out on, because they are trying to figure out how to make you more attentive to the needs of the people involved in the work place dynamic. That is a very difficult thing to do unless you start out with the reason why a person is at the job in the first place. It is easy to see when a person is fully engaged and why he is not.
You are obviously at your office trying to make a living and you want to have a career if you have a choice in the matter. It is a tough thing to go to an office every morning and know that the job is a dead end. You want to think that you are going to get where you want to be and if you think that you have an opportunity to achieve something, then you are going to be completely involved in the job. If you know that you are stuck in a rut spinning your wheels, then it is not at all possible for you to want to work hard to get up for that. It is all that there is to it. A person needs to think they are going some place.
