Good morning or evening or afternoon, depending on where you are this fine day or when you are reading this. Okay, long intro done, lets jump into the matter at heart today.
Are you happy with your job?
So I haven’t been in the corporate world for so long but from the people around me and from my own feelings are we really happy with where we are?
Are we just doing whatever soul sucking job we have for the sake of money? Is it because it was the first job you got and were grateful enough to take it without considering the consequences? Are we simply just to lazy to look for something else?
Remember the excitement when you were kid, and someone would ask, “What do you want to be when you gr0w up?” We wanted to be doctors, teachers, surgeons, astronauts. We had such big dreams for ourselves. No one ever thought they would be tethered to a desk going through the same old routine day in day out. As a child we wanted more out of life.
So where did that enthusiasm for life go? The belief that if you work in that big building in the best part of town is the qualification of you making it. Of you finally having the acceptance of society. Becoming one of the masses, losing that internal spark, that integral part, that makes you stand out in the sea of black and grey suits.
Aren’t you supposed to be happy with the work you do? Having that sense of feeling that this is what am supposed to be doing. This is where I belong. Or are we meant to be ever the followers? Just another statistic.
