Get to work on things you love
The only real way for you to get to do the things you love to do is to tell people about it. How does that work, you may ask? Well, collaboration is key to this. The more you share with others, the more likely they are to understand the kind of work you love doing and the kind of work you’re interested in.
It’s all well to say you’d rather not announce to the world what you like doing. However, that’ll only mean you keep doing what you’re doing and you keep doing that for the rest of your life.
So how exactly does collaboration and sharing come into the picture? Let’s be honest. Not everyone in your organisation shares your enthusiasm about work. When we say work, it doesn’t mean the 9 to 5 you do every week. It means the sort of work you do – whether it’s in the learning industry or sports – and love where you are and you want to know more and do more and contribute to your industry.
The more information you share about these things, the more aware everyone is going to be around you. That’s a good thing! That means when someone notices something interesting you’ve shared, they may immediately want to get on board and do something about it. The first person they would want to rope into this – you hopefully. This is definitely not a certainty but it couldn’t hurt could it?
