Why Do So Many People Loathe Their Jobs - And How Do We Fix That?
Look, first of all I'd like to point out that we'll always find evidence for what we want to believe, so even if I provide you with it (or you provide evidence to the contrary) it's not necessarily an indicator as to whether the situation exists. All I know is I meet a lot of people who, when I ask them how they are - say to me "I'm busy working - and you know, work is work", "I'll be better when I finish the day/workweek" or "It's Monday - how do you think I am?" And how many happy faces do you see if you stroll through the city at lunchtime? Or when you're on a bus at 5pm? It seems that there's a belief that we're born into, which goes something like: "work = sucks". And anything not work = "fun". I think if we buy into that we short change ourselves because we're effectively condemning ourselves to big chunk of our life being of lesser quality than it could be. Work can be a huge source of fun, fulfilment and meaning - we just need to find a way to help more people tap into that. Steven
