Do you Love what you do
Are you passionate about your job?
Do you love what you do?
This week I was at a function where I was sitting with a lovely group of people who started talking and complaining about the job they had. They went onto grumble that it was only Tuesday and they couldn’t wait for the weekend to come so they could get some days off.
As the complaining and the negative talk about wishing the week goodbye went on, I stopped and thought to myself; “Why in the world do these people choose to go to a job that they dislike so much?”
I understand that every job has it’s up and downs, but research tells us that the average person works approx. 2100 hours a year and 90% of the population feel unfulfilled at their current job. 2100 hours a year is a huge chunk of our time so why do so many people do things that don’t make them happy most of the time? I feel so blessed I have a job that I love and help people but so can anyone including you.
Are you unfilled by your work? Do you start the week wishing it goodbye for the weekend to roll around? The thing is life is so short it’s almost Christmas and if we are not enjoying our work and wishing for the weekend we are letting our lives pass us by.
If you are someone that does feel unfilled at work what can you do to start to make a change? What are you passionate about? And I don’t mean go and resign from your job; I mean think about what your job means to you and how you can add some fulfilment and joy into it. Maybe it’s asking for a promotion as you feel a little bored in the current role, perhaps its organising team events and joining the social scene at work so that you can laugh and make more friends at work.
As a society we are working more and more so we need to try to get the best out of those 2100 hours – what can you do to add that little more joy into your working day?
I would love to hear your ideas so please do let me know, I’m always looking for more ways to add a little magic and sparkle into mine and my staffs day.
