Your job is not what you do, but the goal you pursue.
Yet most professionals I know limit their careers believing that their job is what they do. When I ask them, “What’s your job?” They give me answers such as, “I run sales,” “I look after operations,” “I manage HR,” “I develop new products.”
So did I. I was a teacher. My job was to teach. Or so I thought.
What’s Your Goal?
Human action is behavior with a purpose. A person acts because she wants to bring about a future she desires, a future she believes will not come to pass without her effort.
