My Ideal Job
Myself My Work Environment My boss.
The right job is including the people you will be working with, growth opportunity, working environment, and leader of that organization. To understand what work would be ideal job, I really do have to understand myself first then my work interests, work motivators, my personality preferences of working environment, leader of that organization, as well as my personal and professional values.
There are things that interest me in the world of work. I do enjoy adventurous and risk taking activities and my interests lie in finance, being creative, managing, organizing and getting results through others. Also, I am driven for recognition at work, the need for responsibility, having control over my own work and being accountable for my actions. I love variety and change in my work and I am not motivated by stability and security. I am driven by the need to excel in what I do, to find new challenges to overcome while prefer to have friendly colleagues at work. I am motivated by my interest in the work, salary and other rewards. I think that work is of course only one aspect of your life, but there is often confusion when mentioning work/life balance. People seem to think it means there should be an equal balance between the two. This is not necessarily the case having an effective work/life balance is about what works for you, perhaps there will be periods of time where your focus will be more on work than on your personal life, and vice versa. According to Jack Welch " If you don't fulfill your own joy with your work-life plan, one day you'll wake up in a special kind of hell, where everyone is happy but you." (Welch, 2005, p. 334).
