4 Ways to Reclaim Your Workplace Purpose

4 Ways to Reclaim Your Workplace Purpose

There’s no such thing as just a job anymore; you have to know your purpose and make sure you do everything in your power to fulfill it. If you think that this only applies to people who are at the top of their professions, think again. All you need to do is ask yourself these four questions to get back on track with what matters most: 1) What am I doing here? 2) What difference am I making? 3) How does my work serve the company? 4) What impact does my work have on others?


1) Define What Matters

In order to reclaim your workplace purpose, you first need to take a step back and evaluate what matters to you. What are your core values? What motivates you? Once you have a clear understanding of what matters to you, it will be easier to find meaning in your work. Follw the impact of the work you do to see what it means to those that depend on you. This will lead you back to your purpose.


2) Know Where You’re Going

The first step is understanding where you want to be. What are your long-term goals? What kind of company do you want to work for? Once you know where you’re going, it’s much easier to start taking steps in the right direction. Every time we make a decision about our day-to-day, we should ask ourselves: Is this getting me closer to my goal? If not, we need to stop and change course. Sometimes this will mean doing something that might not seem productive or enjoyable at the moment but will move us closer to our goal.


3) Remember Who You Are

You are not your job title or the tasks you complete day-to-day. You are so much more than that! When you feel like you’re losing sight of your purpose, take a step back and remember who you are outside of work. Who are you when you’re not at the office? What makes you happy? What are your passions? How do those passions allign with your work?


4) Ask For Help

When you feel like you’re stuck in a rut at work, it can be helpful to ask for help from a mentor, colleague, or even your boss. Sometimes, all it takes is a fresh perspective to help you see your purpose more clearly.
