Hardly a day goes by where we don’t hear stories about unhappy employees being overworked and underpaid. Some attribute this to greedy employers, unfair wages, and outsourcing. In some cases these issues are valid but what about the many unhappy people that are in their positions because they are just unable to find a job they love; the many workers that utilize their jobs as a means to an end. How common is it to hear, “I can’t quit, I need the money.” This attitude develops workplace stress, emotional disorders, and lack of enthusiasm, motivation, and poor work habits.
I contend there is a way for employees and employers to turn this all around and change things for the better. By changing one's point of focus and frame of reference from “Finding something you love” to “Enjoy what you do.”
