Let’s have a look at the job theoretical foundations to understand the situation deeper and approach to ideal job in an organized way. Don’t be afraid of theory. I will keep it concise, simple and to the point. An ideal job is the one that people experience “meaningfulness “and “responsibility” in it and know about the “result” of their work. Meaningfulness means doing something which is important and using a variety of skills. Responsibility is tied to autonomy and independence in decision making. Knowing the result happens when someone gets feedback from the customers or when someone is dealing with the others.
As an entrepreneur, my job has all three features. I utilize multiple high-level skills such as cognitive, intellectual and communication skills. I am the person who is in charge of completing an identifiable piece of work from start to finish. For example, for my speeches, I select the subject based on my personal experiences for launching a business or the issues that my clients frequently refer to, then I prepare a speech based on the state-of-the-art accumulated knowledge and my insights and at the end I deliver it myself. I control the whole process. Customers, either businesses or people consider my services significant. My work is significant because my job substantially affects other people’s work, health, or well-being. My job allows me to discover a more powerful inward identity and helps me define the beliefs, the priorities, and the perceptions I hold I definitely have autonomy in my work, I can decide on the roadmap of my business roadmap and plan my activities based on my values and personal preferences. I create and then live an identity of my definition. Finally, I have the opportunity to spend time with my colleagues, partners and customers and share emotions, stories, expectations and changes.
Although many regular jobs have the mentioned characteristics, but it’s always a good time to start to work on your own business idea to have an ideal job.
