Most of us get up each morning and go to our jobs. Often times, we don’t think about what another person is working on that day. Instead, we are very focused on our own jobs. I’m a work at home mom, which I think is often an area that’s forgotten about. Most work-at-home professionals have to balance the home, their children, and a career. While I think it’s great that we all contribute to the workforce, I also think every job should be celebrated! So today we partnering with Kronos and are talking about Why Your Job Matters More Than You Think!
Your Job Matters More Than You Think
Aside from bills and keeping food on the table for our families, there are more reasons that your job truly matters more than you may think. You may be wondering why does my job matter so much? I wanted to dive into why your job matters and WHY you should know it is important.
- You are building a better tomorrow- Every step you take within your job makes for a better tomorrow. No matter what you do or how you do it, you are building a future for our children and their children in the industry you work in.
- Your job shows your children you’re a hard worker- When it comes down to it, your job helps to show your children what hard work looks life. Nothing in life is free and you’re showing your children the value of hard work and how you have to earn what you want in life. A valuable lesson not everyone is taught as a child so it gives your children a step forward for when they become responsible adults.
- You contribute to the community- If everyone sat around all day and didn’t work, the world would look a little stranger. Your job matters more than you think because you contribute to the community. You help pay taxes and you help make the economy a lot stronger in the process.
- You get much more out of a job than money- Your job matters more than you think because while you work, you’re gaining self-worth and self-dignity. You feel important and like you matter in this world. You gain new knowledge and get to experience things you wouldn’t be able to if you didn’t work.
One in One Hundred Million
By now, you might be wondering just how much of a difference one person can make in such a big world and it’s a reasonable thought. That is why I wanted to share the “1 in one hundred million” web series with you.
I’m right there with the 1 in one hundred million mantra. This is a movement that is dedicated to sharing the personal stories of those who are in the workforce and work mighty hard each and every day. In essence, American’s workforce keeps America running. Whether you’re a work at home professional, painter, or a nurse— your job matters and you keep America running.
Keep in mind that without every person that has a job in America, our economy wouldn’t be what it is. Every person matters in the workforce. I think one of my favorite parts about the 1 in one hundred million website is that it celebrates those who work hard. One of my favorite episodes is Ep:18. This is a special video that highlights Dana Sue Kimbal, Miner and Environmental Manager, Coeur Rochester Mine (Nevada Mining Association).
I personally love how Dana is a woman working in the mining field. She works at a mine that mines silver and some gold. Since they began operation, this particular mine has produced over 144 ounces of silver and a lot of gold too! Her job rocks and I’m so glad 1 in one hundred million featured her in this episode. Go check it out, I think you’ll love it just as much as I did.
