The Limitations of Words

Does your job description or title empower, inhibit, expand or contract you? When you hand out a business card, use your email signature, or tell someone what you do, how does that title affect you?

Do those words mean the same as when you started that position? Are they simply what you do, or do they define who you are? In our work, we must be careful not to get pigeon holed if we want to grow professionally. Many times when you start a job, you use that phrase to grasp your place in the new environment. After time, it may become run of the mill. Don’t let it be limiting! Use it as a guide. How can you be the best contributing member of your company, with whatever position you hold?
