Work and Money: Which is more important?

WORK and MONEYIt was never, ever about the money. ~Guy Ritchie

How often are we tempted to do something just for the money?

Certainly, I’ve done things for money alone and perhaps you have too dear reader.

In my experience, it’s always proved to be a mistake because no amount of money compensates you for the drudgery of doing something you hate.

And more importantly, if you hate what you’re doing then you’re unlikely to do it very well, are you? It’s hard to feel motivated to do something you hate, surely?

Work and money:

My message today then is very simple really. If you don’t enjoy what you’re doing, you won’t do it well. And if you don’t do it well then eventually you’ll come unstuck. And so it’s all going to end in tears, very probably.

Conversely, if you actually enjoy doing what you’re doing then it will hardly seem like work at all and you’ll be motivated to do it well and produce the best results possible.

Do it well and people will notice and, once people start to notice, your career will start moving onward and upward. Every hiring manager wants someone with a track record for delivering exceptional results.

So never do anything for money alone. Money is nice to have, of course, and none of us can get by these days without it. However, life’s too short to spend your time doing something you hate.

Find a job that’s right for you first and then work hard to master your trade. Get better at it, become more valuable and then get as much as you can in terms of income.

When you’re producing exceptional results, never forget to ensure you’re getting paid what you’re worth.

It should never be about the money but that doesn’t mean you should ignore your value and sell yourself short. It’s about work and the value you can add first and then it’s about making sure you’re suitably rewarded for the value you’re delivering.

Be a dedicated professional, of course, but don’t be a mug. Just because it’s not about the money doesn’t mean you should ignore the money.
