(Disclaimer: You might hate you job, but the title is made to peak your interest, read first 😉 )
We hear about people being burned out and working in jobs that they hate all the time. And this makes me extremely sad. First of all, we spend a significant part of our lives working. Hating our job means we hate the majority of our life. The second part why it makes me sad is because I believe that most posts get a bad rep, even if they are not. It is the environment that is bad.
For example, I know that a lot of people dislike being a management assistant. It doesn’t mean that the job of a management assistant is shit. It means quite often that the workplace itself is. It is most likely more to do with the office culture, leadership, and overall energy at the workplace. I, for example, was terrified of becoming a management assistant because of how the job sounded, but I love my job. The people are great, and I feel like I am useful and helpful. While the job isn’t necessarily always fun and I don’t know if I will do it for the rest of my life, I don’t hate it.
There is a reason why I write about this. The more we talk about the most “hated” jobs. The “shittiest” jobs. The fewer different opportunities we accept. Every single job is essential, and I might be naive, but I do believe you can enjoy almost any work. Instead of finding the dream job in the sense of what you are doing, concentrate on the environment. There is, of course, something to be said for the actual labor you will be doing, and you should think it through. BUT, just because a friend told you that they hated working in a restaurant doesn’t mean you will if you find a place that fits you in it. You will be more than happy about it. Trust me.
I will post more about jobs and opportunities, but trust me when I say there are millions of paths. The importance of work is that you enjoy it. But no job, even the flashiest dream job, is always fun. No matter how well social media markets it ;).
