The new list of the best and worst jobs of 2012 as reported by careercast.com has been released.
Topping the list of the best jobs? HR Managers, Financial Planners, Occupational Therapist, and Online Advertising Manages. Topping the list of worst jobs were lumberjacks, newspaper reporters, and broadcasters.
Everyone wants to find meaning and value in their work. Whether you work in an occupation that ranks for being a “best” or a “worst” job according to the poll, what matters is that you are doing your best, and that you are a “best” employee.
Indira Gandhi said, “My grandfather once told me that there are two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition there.” How true.
Here’s the leadership lesson: it’s not about where you work that makes you happy or fulfilled; it’s about being your best and doing your best that makes you fulfilled.
