For those who don’t know me, my name is Daniel Agamez, Director of Operations and implementation. I started with LSS back in June 2015 with no experience in Logistics whatsoever and I can tell you, it has been quite the ride.
I believe that there is a reason behind everything we do whether it is; family related, something relevant to school, or maybe something to do with your love life, there is always a reason fueling us. In your case, what is it? Is it still there? According to leadership-central.com, motivation is defined as “a general desire, need or want that generates the energy required for someone to behave in a particular way. This means that there’s actually a motive behind the action, which is really an impulse that will trigger the motivational cognitive process which will lead an individual to act on that impulse”.
Just waking up every morning requires energy and YOLO has become a motto for many, so while you are a part of LSS, let’s make our time here count as much as we can. Some of you are here to gain a certain level of experience, others because of specific personal goals you would like to achieve which may require some financial savings. At the end of day, one way or another, it all leads to an indisputable reality which is….we all need the job. However, there should be a reason for us to come to work, to pick up the phone and to comply with what has been entrusted to us.
Goals or Dreams?
It all starts as an Idea, then we give it more thinking until we start planning and we finally execute. This process, although it might seem quick, does require time; should you be one of those determined to get what you have set your eyes on, then you know better. You would be surprised how easy it is to reach your goals with the right kind of motivation. Remember, a dream is only a dream until you set a date for it. Once you have a date for it, it sets the wheels in motions toward that dream beginning with a goal.
For you to make sense out of your daily routine, it should mean something. LSS plays a part in our lives whether the role it plays is big or small. It is contributing to the future we intend to build for ourselves. If you think about it more carefully, you can see that you are part of a growing organization with huge potential that can and will add a meaningful experience to your resume. All the knowledge you have received will allow you to strive for more in the industry and, if you decide to grow within LSS, you will see it pay off. Every New Year’s Eve, people around the world are full of energy and a thousand plans to accomplish, yet those plans are soon to be forgotten. Let us not be one of those people.
Goals or Dreams? Which is it going to be?
Please ask yourselves: As of September 2017, are you where you want to be? If yes, awesome! If not, what’s stopping you? As for 2018, what do you want to be doing and what does it take to make it a reality? Whatever the answer, keep in mind that for you to have a great future you need to build it starting from the present. The way you do things now will inevitably catch up with you.
LSS has been built on shared motives, keeping your best interests in mind. What we do and the way we do it will have an impact in no one else other than ourselves. Well, I hope you found this piece of my mind helpful and relatable, or at least readable. You know where to find me and even though I might look a little serious and busy please keep in mind that for me, everything is meaningful enough to discuss with you and I am never too busy to speak with.
