Imagine that. According to a report from The Conference Board, only 45% of Americans are satisfied with their jobs. That means more than 1/2 of the working population spends the majority of their day dissatisfied. (I won’t even get started on the word “satisfied”.)
That’s really, really sad.
If you hate your job, leave.
That doesn’t mean you should get up, walk into your boss’s office and quit (unless you have the financial resources to do so), but you definitely should be taking the steps that will get you out of there- NOW.
I saw now so vehemently, because your next job must be one you love. No more wasting hours, days, months, years of your life on something that doesn’t make you happy. And- figuring out what that next job should be and how to get it could take more than a couple weeks.
If you’re not sure what to do to start the process, check out Forget the Parachute, Let Me Fly the Plane. All the tools you need to start down the road to career success are in there, from figuring out what your next career should be all the way through how to get it.
The sooner you start, the sooner you’re free. And more than satisfied.
