Can somebody give me an example between being and be?

Which one is the right way to say?

Being able to do my job or be able to do my job.

The usage varies and is kind of confusing, I'll admit.

ejemplos:

being able: Being able to do my job well is very important to me.

be able: My boss tells me that I should be able to do my job with out complaining.

I'm not an english major so I can't tell you the exact differences, but here are a couple pages:

verb modals - can

english verb - be

"being" is the gerund form of the english verb "be" or "to be".

To be able to is usually interchangeable with "can". I am able to do it. I can do it.

Sorry, I should have paid more attention in english class, then maybe I could explain it better smile

I'm not sure what you are asking. Neither is correct in that format. I love being able to do my job. He would be able to do my job if he were taller.
