Right now, I’m seeing a big gap in the employment marketplace – but probably not what you think. I’m seeing a rapidly growing number of advertised jobs (in October? Go figure!) with a huge number of people still out of work.
Here’s the actual gap: Many, many people aren’t actually looking for work – at least not as diligently as they once were.
It’s a lack of inspiration. After you’ve been bashing your head against this problem for so long, you just get worn out.
But it’s not just those out of work. If you have a job right now, or are creating you own business, count yourself lucky. But are you inspired? Are you bringing your best to your work?
This became clear to me today, because I had a couple of different discussions where we talked about that loss of momentum. And I see it in the larger society as well – people increasingly disconnected from government action, moving away from organizations and companies.
I’m not going to fix all of society, at least not this week. Instead, I’ll work on myself and the people I’m close with. Let’s see what we can do about our own personal inspiration and engagement.
I have a request for each of you receiving this newsletter today: Please tell me one thing that gives you inspiration. I’ll pull those together and share them with the rest of the group in the next newsletter two weeks from now.
Are you up for the challenge?
