How to find meaning from your work?

October 13, 2021
1/3 of our life is spent at work. It would only make sense that any person would want to make this huge proportion of their life as pleasurable as possible, right? Yet, unhappiness with one’s work is more common than satisfaction. There are so many people who HATE their jobs, they go from day to day, just suffering and waiting for the workday to end. And for what? To go home and be exhausted after spending a day doing something that does not drive them. If you want to live a happy life, this has to change! And the only way to do that is to take responsibility for your professional development and personal growth.

The good news is that you are not a tree, stuck in one place. You can change your path if you want to. The world is full of educational materials, inspiring leaders and kind supporters who are there to cheer you on as soon as you take the first step!
