In today’s competitive business world, I can find it difficult at times to find my self-worth in my workplace when I’m not generating the big money in comparison to the field.

Maybe the solution is in the problem. Who am I comparing myself to? Why?

Maybe I should look at the value I bring to the workplace differently. Maybe our value can not be translated to dollars so quickly.

It would be comparing it to planting a fruit tree in your backyard and hoping there’s ripe peaches on your tree in the morning or even the following week.

I’m laying the groundwork and investing in my team for dividends I may not see for months. I have to believe it will pan out in the end. No matter what the bottom line says today.

Or at least that’s what I tell myself.
