Do You Love Your Job?
Have you ever asked yourself why you work where you work and why you do what you do for a living? Depending on where you are in life and your current level of stress this might feel like a frivolous question. You may even be thinking who has the time to consider such a question. No matter how starved for time you may feel in the daily rollercoaster of life, this is an important question. And by asking this shouldn’t include the many possible opinions that so many people in our life are ready to give. This is a personal thought exercise and one that only you can answer.
If such a question creates a pause or even a measure of fear this is not a bad thing. It’s extremely easy to get caught up in the day-to-day activities of life. The problem with hesitation is when it turns into days, weeks, months or even years of inaction and then the bad days begin to outnumber the good ones. Remembering what the good days feel like is critical to finding out what’s important in order to live while making a living.
There’s an old saying, “if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” Loving, or at least liking, what you do equates into fewer days ruled by stress, frustration, anxiousness and boredom. Enjoying what you do also equates into better health and well-being over the long run. Left unresolved, anger, stress and frustration can create long term health issues.
Reasons for Consideration
- Happier people experience less stress and live a more-satisfying life.
- The right job or career fit can provide important connections to community and professional opportunities.
- Feeling good about where you spend your time strengthens a personal sense of purpose.
- Healthy work challenges lead to growth and more new experiences.
- Stress overload can literally kill you or shorten your life span.
Sometimes finding a sense of purpose requires getting off the current path and embracing new skills and opportunities. As Staffing Experts, we see the highs and lows of a candidate’s job search. Often this means embracing the lessons learned in this journey. That’s not to say that each interview will result in an offer, but it’s a good way to learn more about what you desire in a job opportunity and what it will take to enjoy the work along the way.
Employment in the Staffing Industry is challenging but also extremely rewarding. We not only play an important role in a person’s employment but make an impact on their lives and the lives of their families. Let Staffing Kansas City help you find your perfect job so you’ll, “never work a day in your life.”
