It is often asked "How can we make people perform better?" Performance is measured by the accomplishment of goals, by how much has been done and produced. Millions in money are spent to try and increase performance and create motivation. These methods work, temporarily, before motivation starts to sag again and performance starts to lag again. This is false performance because it only has temporary motivation and temporary incentive. It is false inspiration.
Motivational incentives are a big part of trying to motivate people to perform, to give their extra and best but many times it lacks a crucial aspect...happiness and love. Endless resources can be spent on incentives to motivate in hopes of increasing performance but without happiness and love it will inevitably bear less fruit than hoped for or even none.
There is a saying "Love what you do and do what you love". This expression is 50% false. Nobody will always love what they do. There are many tasks that you will never love to do no matter how hard you try. Inevitably then too you will underperform in these tasks because will, motivation, care, love and happiness is not part of your unwilling actions. Achievement and a sense of satisfaction will never come from such tasks. If your activitites should consist of such tasks you would constantly underperform, never reach you true potential and never deliver quality anything. Such tasks of course are unavoidable and necessary at times but should always be only a temporary activity, not a permanent job.
The second part of the expression - ... do what you love - is where the true capability to perform rest. Everyone has something they like to do. Something that endless hours can be spent on without it ever feeling like effort. Something that just seems to have endless motivation behind it and driven performance to do it as excellent as possible. Something you do not mind pouring endless resources and time into not just because you like it but love it and it brings you great happiness. The world around you can go to pot but as long as you are loving what you're doing time and effort doesn't exist. At the end you may be tired but it would be a good tired. A happy, satisfied tired and a fulfilling rest.
Performance stemming from doing what you love transcends anything that any motivational incentive program could ever achieve because it brings out your real best. A best you didn't even think you were capable of. One of the greatest aspects of love and happiness driven performance is the striving towards quality. When someone bases their entire activity on the premise of extracting the maximum level of love and happiness from it then the end product or service will inevitably be of a very high quality. Love and happiness in one's activities can only give the best and bring the best.
When a society is based on the principle of not working for material reward but for happiness, love and joy then all work will disappear. Nobody will ever work again because doing what you love is not work. It is spending every moment in a state of fulfilled joy. There is a term for that - Heaven. Heaven is a state of fulfilled joy and always endless love and happiness. You need not die to go to heaven. It can be life now. Heaven can be within anyone's grasp and peak performance can be a permanent state of life. Just find what you love to do and do it. A world of such people will always deliver the highest and best of and from themselves and never will an incentive or motivational anything be needed again. Inspiration will be endless because love is there and happiness is flowing every moment. And that is the simple key to "job" fulfillment...Do what you love and heaven will be yours.
