Why do so many people hate their jobs, is it time to change?

There are very few people that can honestly say that they get excited about the idea of going to work and wake up thinking about getting to work with the same kind of excitement. The moments that are not favourable are very few and far between.

More commonly people are at work, watching the time or at least can’t wait to get home and when home do not look forward to going back to work, in a sense we never live in the present moment, thinking about getting home when we are working and when home thinking about being at work the next day which sends us into a depressive mood. As work is a high percentage of our lives I think it should be at least a priority of ours to find something that drives us towards the first paragraph. There are many roles out there that fit in with our creative side. We all come from different environmental conditions and all have different interests so its possible that we are able to find what drives us towards happiness. After all, we spend most of our lives doing whatever we are trying not to do; we may as well put some effort into something that we really want to do.

The problem with not enjoying our jobs is; we are constantly wishing that we are somewhere else or doing something different with our lives and yet because we are so busy with the work we dislike, its hard to get ourselves into training due to time constraints or we are just too tired with the day that we find ourselves with no inspiration to follow our dreams.

We have almost built up an educational system that if you are to learn, change a career and find something that interests you, you need to have time on your hands and that means you need to stop working. There are of course open universities that may work for some but not all. Not everyone can adjust into the one type fits all programmes, this idea for me personally seems ridiculous, our interests all differ slightly and this drive that shows our full creativeness has the possibility to become dimmer as our formal educated training moves forward.

We live in the age of the Internet where the infinite possibilities are found through Google searches. We know longer need to be told something and then to show we know through regurgitation. If we are truly interested in something, we have that information right at our fingertips. We are in a time where we have all of this information in our home and if it means turning off the TV and avoiding social media or whatever obstructs you from changing into a brighter you then its worth it. There is no time to waste, move forward with your dreams in whatever inspires you.
