This guy reminds me of Cat Stevens - anyone else hear that influence or similarity?
Re-commissioning of 725 Squadron, Royal Australian Navy prompted a new badge. The 50-year history of the squadron which is home to Lockheed Martin and Sikorsky MH-60R helicopters, is varied and colorful. There are commissions, and decommissions/disbands including radar and communications calibration exercises, air interception practice, towing, and search & rescue missions.
I love the new badge - it encompasses the history of Australia, the Aussie Navy, and flight.
When I was a competitive athlete, my father would often tell me to "Be Aggressive" on the field of play. He would certainly approve of the 725th badge!
Do you hate your job title?
I heard a presenter today make a statement "I am tired of hearing the word 'strategy'. It's my least favorite word and I am sick of hearing about it."
What is his job title? Chief Strategy Officer.
To the audience, we immediately wondered why he would take a job with the word he hates in the job title.
For this young presenter, the conflict between job title, organization, and personal interest will cause problems. There is no harmony between his work and personal preference or interest.
Tired of strategy? Don't take a strategy focused job.
Tired of hearing about finance? Don't take a chief finance officer position.
Tired of the term mobility? You get the picture.
Make your work your passion. When I talk about my work, I get energized and excited to tell others.
If we are at odds with an assignment, role, or job title, let's work to change it.
Some ideas to find jobs that align with our passion
The summary is enjoy your work, if you don't seek work that is pleasing and rewarding.
