Have you ever stopped and wondered about what drives you to do what you do? Do you know what is the difference between leverage and drive?
No matter what it is that you do in life, whether you are an athlete, a writer or a businessman, there is an emotional side behind everything we do. But most of us look to ignore this component since we are so busy getting the job done! Admittedly we have been guilty of this in the past, so we are not pointing any fingers…:)
However, if we were to just pause and pay attention for a moment, we will discover that this is secret that not only fulfils us, but fuels us as people. There comes a point when if you do something again and again without any meaning attached to it, you lose interest. You lose your drive! Unfortunately, this a common story for far too many people who seem to lose their drive and purpose in their work.
Great wisdom traditions teach that the purpose of life is always to be found in service. If you can find a way to better the lives of other people and look to offer yourself for something which serves the greater good, you will be living your purpose.
At CFL we believe that although our work may not seem like much from the outside in we see it different. We see it as much more than just a means to an end. Our work goes beyond just measuring and fitting curtains, blind tracks or poles. We don’t see ourselves as just handymen who fit curtains and blinds…instead we notice the little things and see our efforts as a contribution in some way, be it small or big…it doesn’t matter. But how you ask?
Well first we understand that every time a customer picks up the phone to ring us they have a reason for doing so. They are looking to resolve or improve a situation in their lives. Some have just moved into a lovely new home and want to create their dream living room or bedroom! Others have entered a new chapter in their lives and wish to re-create their environment to reflect their new bliss. Yet some may be in dis-comfort with their current situation and require a better solution be it a repair to existing systems or recycling old ones! Not to mention our service to the trade including award winning interior designers & architects. No matter what the specific reason for reaching out to us, we see it as our duty to serve. We understand that our customers have a need to better their lives in some way.
This is what fuels us, this is the driving force behind everything that we do as a team. Our mission is to ease and improve the lives of our customers, even if it is in a small basic way. You see everything in life contributes even the littlest things, just making someone smile is a contribution. We are passionate about our work simply because we have found meaning in it. It’s no wonder why we love doing what we do!
We hope this will inspire everyone out there who currently seem to have lost their drive, wondering where it has gone! Look for meaning in what you do. If you can’t find a meaning, then create one. If you can find a way to serve others and contribute their wellbeing, you will be living your purpose.
