In light of our post earlier this morning, Spark News ran into this lovely infographic and though it was a great one to share. Loving your job is one of the most important aspects of life. After all, if most of your day is spent at work do you really have the time and convenience to strongly dislike it? The answer should be no, but the reality is that many of us work in jobs that don’t make us very happy. This infographic is refreshing and reminds you that, “hey, if you don’t like your job, you have the choice to change.”
“The one true liberty we have in life is choice. And although our choices are becoming limited over time, the freedom of choice when it comes to employment is still available to all Americans.” This may be something that a lot of us forget. We feel as though we are stuck in a dead-end job simply because we need the paycheck and we “have no choice” but to work. That may work out for some, but for others there’s a constant realization that there has to be a better way. “If you don’t like where you work, have the confidence to leave- and choose an environment more suitable to your persona.” This quote on the infographic is from Daniel Murphy and can work as a bit of inspiration to working stiffs all over the country.
We have to realize that this is our life and our job is a large part of it. If we don’t get along with our company or the views that go along with it, we won’t be happy. That is why the number one way to love your job is to find a culture that fits you. If the company you work for doesn’t fit in with your view of life, your morals, your desires or values, then you need to find one that does. Working in a company that doesn’t fit your needs can be suffocating and breeds unhappiness.
The number two way to love your job is to do what you are passionate about. We hear this all the time but for many of us it goes in one ear and out the other. We dream of doing a job we love and never having to “work” a day in our lives. This seems like a dream, but it can be a reality. You just need to figure out what you are passionate about and follow it. Without passion, your job can be a bore.
Take a look at the next three ways you can love your job and start loving what you do every day. It’s not just a dream. It can be a reality if you work at it and truly want to love what you do.
