Today’s Quote is from Steve Jobs

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”  — Steve Jobs

Ahhh, what a great quote. I wholeheartedly agree with what Steve Jobs is saying in this quote. I have been in roles at work that I did not love. Some I didn’t even like. It was tough to get up in the morning to go to work.

We spend the majority of our lives working. Whether it be working for someone else or ourselves, we spend more time at work than we do with our family and loved ones. Most of us enter careers because it’s something we are interested in or passionate about. Many of us enter careers because it is something we fell into. Many of us enter careers because it’s something someone else wanted us to do.

Whether you are working doing something you wanted to do, something you happened into, or are living someone elses dream for you, you want to be satisfied with your work. If you are like me, you want to believe you are doing great work.

I will tell you from experience, the times where I felt like I’ve done great work is when I was doing something that I loved doing. I have done work that I didn’t particularly like doing. I’ve done work that I had to do to make a living. I was not doing it because I loved it, I needed to make money to pay the bills.

If you are starting your career but aren’t sure what you want to do, start thinking about what you love to do. What is enjoyable to you? What are you passionate about?

Write out a list of things you like to do, that you really get excited about that you get into “The Zone” when you do it.

Put your Strengths , Passions, things you are good at and love to do on the left hand side. Put a line down the middle of the page.  On the other side of the line, put Careers.

Look at your strengths, passions and things you are good at and love to do and then look up careers that will let you do what matches these items. This will be the start of your best career choices that will help you be satisfied with your work.

Do you want to do Great Work? Do you want to be satisfied with your work, your life?  As Steve Jobs said,

“the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

At Pauwels Consulting, we are continually looking for motivated consultants who are in a position to bring our clients’ projects to a successful conclusion. As a result, we interview lots of candidates and regularly take on interesting new colleagues.

In our series ‘People of Pauwels Consulting’, new colleagues introduce themselves and talk about their first few months of working at Pauwels Consulting and our clients.

Today, we are going to get acquainted with Tinne Mans. Tinne has been working as a Records Management Analyst at Pauwels Consulting for the past 10 months.

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”

Tinne, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Tinne: Of course! My name is Tinne Mans and I have lived in the Campine for thirty years. My great love is horse riding. All that I need to get the weekend off to a flying start is a cowboy hat and a cosy campfire!

However, when the summer arrives and the mercury rises, all I need is a beach, some palm trees and a refreshing dip in the water (laughs).

What is your professional background?

Tinne: After graduating as a primary school teacher, I taught for a year in a school. Unfortunately, as a new teacher, I couldn’t find a permanent post immediately. So after a year, I decided to pursue a different career.

I got a job as a Packaging Development Reviewer at a pharmaceutical company, where I assessed packaging design.

How did you end up at Pauwels Consulting?

Tinne: The company I was working for carried out corporate restructuring. So I found myself looking for a new challenge. While searching online, I came across an interesting vacancy at Pauwels Consulting.

What was your first impression of Pauwels Consulting?

Tinne: I used to think consulting firms only took on people with very specific skills or a certain degree. Even so, I wanted to keep all my options open while I was looking for new work.

So I applied to Pauwels Consulting. I was invited to an interview and was pleasantly surprised at the number of opportunities that the recruiter and account manager thought were suitable for me (thanks Laila and Mélodie).

My first potential assignment didn’t go ahead in the end, but Laila and Mélodie carried on actively searching for another opening for me. That led to my current project.

Where do you work now?

Tinne: I currently work as Records Management Analyst at Janssen Pharmaceutica, where I give advice on all the issues related to archiving.

My team trains the company’s employees on saving both hardcopy and electronic documentation in line with applicable retention schedules, laws and company regulations.

In addition, my team gives advice on the commissioning and decommissioning of applications used worldwide in J&J.

“My colleagues and manager have been giving me fantastic guidance.”

Can you sum up your experiences over the first few months?

Tinne: I found the first few months very instructive. The work is very varied and there are many subactivities. So it’s impossible to learn everything in one go. My colleagues and manager have been giving me fantastic guidance.

Although I don’t see my colleagues at Pauwels Consulting every day, the contact we have runs very smoothly too. Pauwels Consulting is a major player and growing rapidly, yet they have managed to preserve the personal touch.

For example, my account manager pays me regular visits, during which any issues can be discussed immediately. HR matters are also followed closely, which is important for me because the office in Ghent is quite a long way away.

Furthermore, Pauwels Consulting really does its best to get everyone together regularly. There are lots of parties, family days, after-work activities, bike rides and other events for colleagues and family alike.

What have you learned in the past months?

Tinne: Lots. As I said, my work includes plenty of subactivities. I already had some experience with the basics of a pharmaceutical company, but I’ve learned all my core tasks on the job.

These range from helping prepare retention schedules to protecting business-critical files and from managing archiving processes to conducting internal audits.

And every day I learn something new. Pauwels Consulting have even already given me the opportunity to get some extra training.

Is there anything in particular you’d like to share with our readers?

“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know it when you find it.”

That is what Steve Jobs once said and the message is clear: find a job you love doing, that will be reflected in the way you do it.

Well said, Tinne. Thank you very much for this interview and all the best of luck with your projects!
