Why You Do Things a Certain Way

Seriously.

Why do you butter your toast a certain way?
Why do you dry yourself off after a shower a certain way?
Why do you organize your books a certain way?
And why do you do your job a certain way?

I’m sure you butter your toast the way that you want to. Not the way that someone else tells you to.
I’m sure you dry yourself off the way you want to. Not the way someone else tells you to.
And I’m sure you organize your books the way you want to. Unless your partner makes you do it a certain way.

So why not do your job your way? If someone hired you, did they hire you so you can do the job their way? Or so you can do the job your way? I’d like to believe the latter. However, there are obviously limits as to how much control/creativity you can display in a job.

But think about that the next time your boss asks you to do something. Who’s way are you doing it? Just because your boss is your boss doesn’t mean they know best. Surprising right?
