There’s a great quote from Confucius that says, “Find a job you enjoy, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” The wise Confucius reminds us that our JOB should be about more than just the WORK. Over the span of our careers, most of us have worked in a job at some point only to pay the bills. There’s nothing wrong with that, but be careful. People are creatures of habit and it is tragic when a job that is not rewarding or enjoyable becomes a long term career of misery.
It’s a terrible feeling of dread some get when they realize they have to go to work the next day and they hate what they do. I was extremely lucky to find my dream job early in my career, but it’s never too late for anyone! For more than 20 years, I’ve guided thousands of people down the path to find the job of their dreams. The process can take some time and requires much hard work and commitment, but the payoff is beyond measure.
