Viagra of Big Business

The title of this post is part of a quote by Jack Welch, the business man, referring to the internet. I don’t really have the knowledge to have an opinion about him, so let’s not even go there. He did say he was a Republican earlier this year.

But anyway, the above isn’t the quote that made me start writing this post. That quote is is “Change before you have to.”

I think it is a quote that I need to write on many pieces of paper and put in every room I regularly go to. Because we are in a time of constant change. There’s no money in libraries and we’re already feeling it. It’s not going to get better any time soon. But we can try to adapt and survive.

Here’s a list of what I will look at to motivate myself:

  • What motivates me?
  • What do I want from work?
  • Remove demotivators.
  • Find support.
  • Be active whenever possible. Take control of my work.
  • Stop moaning so much.
  • Remember successes.

Here’s some stuff I’ve read so far:
