In life, there will always be things that we like and things that we do not. In our jobs, there will also be things that you enjoy about it and things that you don’t enjoy about it. No matter what you do, you will find that this is true. We tend to be constantly looking for perfection and have the belief that we are supposed to like everything. We should not be consumed by this search because we won’t always enjoy it all. When I worked at UPS, I didn’t like the job, but I did like the paycheck.
What should we do in situations where we do not have perfection? We need to persevere and sometimes we need to make ourselves do what we don’t like to do. Sometimes we need to endure so that we can succeed in life and be successful at our jobs. What is necessary is an attitude adjustment within ourselves in order to not focus on things that we do not like or what we think is wrong. If we do this, we can then focus on the bigger picture.
While working at UPS, I had to focus on that what they paid me, on providing for my family, and paying my bills. When we focus on what is immediately in front of us, we tend to lose our perspective on what is important. The lesson that we need to learn is that nothing is perfect. If we want to, we can always find fault. What we should focus on is looking at the big picture and the benefits instead of what is wrong with the situation. This mindset will help us and benefit us when we face imperfection.
