Enjoyment of Life

At Entura, we have four company values that we celebrate throughout the year. This quarter, it is "Enjoyment of Life" and we've asked the team to share what this means for them personally. The range of answers, we believe, reflects our company culture.

Work as part of your life

Most of us see work as part of life and get the most enjoyment - and fulfilment - out of finding the right balance and being as productive as possible in both areas. Succeeding in what we do every day and being able to develop both professionally and as a person also ranked highly across the team.

Below are just some of the important factors helping to maintain everyone’s Enjoyment of Life on a daily basis:

  • being appreciated for and trusted with what we do as professionals is just as important as a roof over our head
  • being encouraged to follow our dreams.
  • an ice-cold beer on a Friday
  • coming into work and knowing you're making a difference
  • travel
  • good communication
  • a good work environment
  • strangers that suddenly & unexpectedly become your friends

What else does it mean?

When not in work, for most of us, this also means spending time with friends and family, having fun, exercising and resting well so we can be ready for the challenges lying ahead of us on a daily basis.

A good summary of all the above is this last quote by our CEO, Michael:

“Life is a mixture of several aspects: Family, friends, work, sleep, and health. However, you can only choose 3 at any one time. This is otherwise known as the Entrepreneur's Dilemma. Randi Zuckerberg - Former Director of Market Development for Facebook stated this and it hits home with me.

Enjoyment of life is getting the balance of those individual parts and managing what we focus on as time passes so you can live life fully. We can't have everything in life, but we can target those things important to us and focus on making the most of the opportunities that present themselves. Everyone has a target in life and reaching those targets provide an amazing sense of achievement.

Life will always be a balancing act that is hard to get right, but we can make it one hell of a ride as we strive to meet our potential!”

“Balance is not something you find, it’s something you create” – Jana Kingsford
