You see them everywhere. People spending their lives working from nine to five, Monday through Friday, 40 hours a week, doing something they hate or are bored with. Across the nation 5pm on Friday is celebrated and Monday is almost unanimously hated. What does this say about our society?
If you were to ask people on the street, it wouldn’t take long to find someone that hates what they do. They are part of the majority that are comfortable with their daily routine, albeit how boring or stressful their work may be. That person spends 47% of their week (not factoring in anything else, not even sleep) essentially converting their time into money, and nothing more.
Don’t be a part of this crowd.
It is true that any job will get “comfortable” after enough time, but when you retire and look back at what you’ve done over the years, did you really contribute to your happiness? Find out what you love doing and focus on how you can convert that passion into something marketable.
Don’t get a job just for the salary.
A lot of people I met in college were in it for one thing. The money. The same problem exists though. They will be spending majority of their life doing something that doesn’t bring them true happiness.
Don’t get comfortable doing what you don’t absolutely love doing. Life is too short to stunt your happiness in that way.
