Are you stuck in a dead end job at the moment? Or are you living the dream? How much does this affect your life and happiness? If you do love your job, what advice can you give to someone who is fed up with not liking what they do?
I don't know if I can really say....my job is more a calling, so I can only say I do it for the greater good.
If your in a job you hate...Sit down, write out all the things you 'love to do' or are good at.
Then, work out 'how' in the work place, you can do them and get paid.
I tell this to men all the time, don't do what you hate!
Do what you really enjoy, even if you have to take a slight pay cut.
If people were to pick what they are good at, and liked...we would have a really happy world.
My job is parenting. Sometimes I love it, other times not so much. Overall I'm pretty happy with it.
It's okay not to be thrilled with your job all the time (if it was always fun they wouldn't have to pay you to do it), but if you find yourself waking up every day really dreading going to work it's time to quit if you can.
Can't say I love my job but I don't hate it either. I do find it boring as there aren't enough new challenges for me. I stay because I'm paid well for what I do and I get great benefits, so in many ways I'm very lucky. Unfortunately I was one of those people who never really knew what they wanted to do and just "fell" into the industry I'm in and 30 years later, even though I've moved companies, I'm still here.
I love my job designing people’s homes and managing the tender process. It gives me a great sense of satisfaction and I feel good knowing that with time my efforts combined with the owner’s hard work will produce a long term investment that will provide security and accommodation.
What I don’t like about it is in my opinion the complete absence of regulation relating to the false and misleading marketing used by some companies to lure people into calling their companies.
It is this aggressive marketing that is the only part of my job that saddens me as I believe the building industry is the back bone of the economy and provides a sound base for the community to progress yet this behaviour is left unchecked and disrupts the trust the community has in our industry.
But what would I know
