How can I make a difference?

Sometimes it feels like what we do is insignificant. We feel like a cog in a wheel. Look at the big picture. Look at how what you do fits into a bigger scope of activity and think about what wouldn’t get done without you. See the value you bring and discuss it with your boss. When we don’t think we matter we get discouraged. Find out how you contribute. Compliment others on the difference they make. Notice that office momentum can turn around when people see their purpose and their connection to the greater good. No job is so small that it is insignificant. Talk about it, discover it, share it with others, and be proud of it.
