There are things we feel like we have to do.
And then there are things we feel like we get to do.
Things we have to do — kind of dreadful.
Things we get to do — exciting!
Have and get are interchangeable in many circumstances.
Maybe you feel you have to get a report done this week. But is it possible that it’s something you get to do when you consider the impact that the report might have on the work your team is doing?
Maybe you feel like you have to do more customers calls this week. But is it possible that it’s something you get to do when you consider that some of the customers calls might turn into meaningful partnerships?
Like most things, when it comes to have and get — dread and excitement — it’s about perspective.
