I have a lot of time to think as I drive 1 hour each way to and from work every day. Since I got tired of listening to my iPod, I thought of trying the radio. The morning man is cool and the guys in the afternoon do crazy things. But they made me realize something; they become ecstatic because it’s Friday and they even have a song about Monday being the worst day of the week. The funniest part is that I believe they really like their jobs, but they do this because most people don’t.
When you come to work on a Friday morning and you ask people how they are doing, some people will always answer something like “It’s going well, after all it’s Friday”. Only a few hours left…before the weekend. So my question this morning; Why do we have to hate our jobs so much? Why do we have Thank God It’s Friday?
Do You Hate Your Job?
My guess is you don’t *hate* your job. But my question is more related to why are you so looking forward to the weekend? What is so boring about your job that you must wait 5 days to spend 2 short days running around trying to do too many things all at the same time?
I think that we should not be living only for the weekends. I think that our weekends should be everyday. Our alarm clock should sound like the melody of a new day…and not like the Grinch who stole your dreams!
Your job is too hard, you are too stressed, or there is this dumbass that appears to be your colleague that does only things that bother you. I guess we all have our problems at work… as we all have problems in life anyways, right?
How can you make your life more fun?
That is probably the question! It’s not that easy you will answer me. But in fact, it should be. About a year ago, I made some decisions in my life. I made the following points as non-negotiable:
– being happy in my life
– being happy at work
– doing what I like at my conditions
– having more time for me and my family
You might want to tell me that it’s easier said than done. Or that I was lucky to be able to change my working conditions. However, I can tell you something; if you believe you are worth it, it is because you are worth it. And if you do, you won’t have problems to change your working conditions.
What if I really can’t?
You can’t change the way your job works? You have to go to work each day or you will lose it? Maybe it’s time to think of another plan. I have seen a documentary about my species lately (generation Y) and there was a young entrepreneur that was saying something so true:
“We work every single day. We don’t have work weeks nor weekends. However, while we are working everyday, we feel like it’s Saturday.”
Feeling likes it’s Saturday… everyday. Could there be a better way to say that you love what you do? I almost feel this way. And one day, I would like to feel it all week long.
