Worship While You W.O.R.K.

Do you have the gift of speaking? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Do you have the gift of helping others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 4:11

In the dictionary, worship means “to show reverence and adoration“. A true understanding of the worship of God is that it’s more than just showing reverence and adoration in a religious ceremony, but it’s a lifestyle of acknowledgement, adoration, and alignment with His plans and expectations. That lifestyle includes the work you do on a daily basis.

So as you go to work everyday as an employee or entrepreneur, the best way to view your work is that it should be… Worship Of the Real King!

Here’s some practical examples of what this looks like…

  • Work in spirit and truth – Work while continually acknowledging God for the strength, creativity, and ability He gives you to work (John 4:23)
  • Work in the beauty of holiness – It’s a beautifully holy act to work with excellence and dedicate your work to the Lord, not just as something to do to make a living or please someone else (Psalm 96:9)
  • Work in your lane – Stay true to His purpose and calling for your life (Proverbs 4:25)
  • Work with excellence Be the best. Set the standard of leadership (Daniel 5:14)
  • Work with diligence – Work hard and smart (Proverbs 10:5)
  • Work with creativity – Use the ideas, strategies, and concepts God provides through prayer and revelation (Proverbs 8:12)
  • Work with integrity – Let all your dealings be above reproach (Proverbs 11:1)
  • Work with passion – Let your zeal for God energize your work (Romans 12:11)
  • Work toward reconciliation – Take advantage of daily opportunities for life on life discipleship (2 Corinthians 5:19)

Today is a marvelous day for you to be transformed in the way you think about your work. Honor God in your work and you will experience Him in a whole new way!

Live Passionately!

Create Your Personal Enterprise

In yesterday’s post I wrote about the growing trend of corporations hiring more “permatemps” versus full-time employees. Over the next decade as corporations increasingly move further in this direction, greater numbers of people will be engaged in entrepreneurial pursuits — by choice or circumstance.

It’s time for you to shift your focus on how you view yourself and your employment. YOU are a personal enterprise. YOU are a business owner. The business you own is YOU! YOU, Inc. is the most valuable enterprise that you could work for. Your product/service is the unique and innovative combination of your talents, knowledge, experience, education, skills, ideas, creativity, relationships, networks, etc. Now is the time for you to start managing your career like a business owner, not just a “permatemp” at the mercy of companies’ quarterly earnings reports.

For some this equates to starting a business. For others this means approaching your job search (and performance) more entrepreneurially. Either way, it’s time to reformulate your expectations about your participation in the workforce — either as an entrepreneur or intrapreneur.

Many of you may be saying, “I have no idea how to create my YOU, Inc.” Fortunately, I’m here to help you. I’m passionate about moving people to thrive professionally, purposefully, and profitably.
Contact me today for some ideas on how you can create your personal enterprise.

Thrive on Purpose,

You’re a Business Owner Whether You Know It or Not

Have you heard the term “permatemp”? It describes people who seem to be caught in a never-ending cycle of temp jobs, unable to secure full-time status. As you may have noticed, even as the economy recovers from this recession, companies are still not hiring full-time workers. Many are using this permatemp approach to keep people in limbo as temporary workers, while not having to pay them full-time salaries or benefits.

Businessweek.com posted an enlightening article recently, “We’re All Business Owners Now“, documenting companies’ shift from “relying on full-time employees to a contingent workforce of temps, freelancers, contractors, and part-timers. Not just in low-skill jobs or easily outsourced tasks, either.

Even as the economy “recovers”, this trend is going to continue. So whether you’re currently employed, unemployed, or underemployed, you have to decide if you want to be another victim of corporations’ short-sighted, penny-pinching ways, where disposing of workers is even easier now than it used to be… or if you want to proactively position yourself as the owner of your “personal enterprise”.

Don’t wait to be a victim. You can use entrepreneurial strategies to find a more meaningful and profitable career path. I’ll talk about this more in my next post.

Thrive on purpose,
Paul Wilson, Jr.
