Penguine4050 asks, "Do people even really want to work?"
She's a store manager and her salespeople seem less than enthusiastic about their jobs.
I said, "Of course they don't want to work. That's because it is work."
Some of us do really love our jobs. So what makes it a good job?
The jobs that I have had that are really fun are ones where people are working together on some obtainable, observable goal. These are usually volunteer jobs where I have something to offer, or some way to help other people achieve a goal. For me it involves writing, drawing, or driving. That's what I do.
What could Penguine do get her folks working together. What in her community needs doing. Sponsor a little league team, have a monthly pizza feed on skid row, set up a youth blogging station in the store?
What has made your work fun in the past? Could she use it?
