They say if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life. And, with Valentine’s Day approaching, it got us thinking at TalentTech about just how important it is to be content in your relationship with work.
For many of us, a large percentage of our day is spent at work. A recent survey indicated that the average person will spend 90,000 hours at work over their lifetime and this, of course, can have a huge impact on your wellbeing and leave you chasing a work/life balance that can prove so elusive.
If you’re not home based, average commuter times are also staggering, with people clocking up over 94,000 miles on average over the course of their career.
If all this time and effort is for a job you’ve fallen out of love with – or were never actually in love with in the first place – it can become detrimental to both our physical and mental health, as well as causing tension in our home life. No wonder then, that the thought of a new career crosses people’s minds at least 10 times per year.
Being happy at work isn’t just good for the soul. It increases productivity and enhances performance; it’s essentially a win-win. People who enjoy their jobs and feel fulfilled are more likely to be motivated, optimistic and make better business decisions.
So, if the alarm clock in the morning signals another day of grind ahead, perhaps it’s time to focus on a new job and a fresh challenge. You can make a change at any point in your life; you just have to want it.
