Do you love your job or your company?

Updated on : January 17, 2022 by Jadiel Barrett



Do you love your job or your company?

My experience is that most people don't love their job. Many like it, some tolerate it, but it is a minority who find a job that they love and that also supports their lifestyle.

Does that mean that everyone else must live in frustration, desperately searching for that perfect job that they are passionate about? Not at all.

You can and should enjoy your work. Doing so is invaluable to your life in many ways, including greatly increasing your chances of financial success. But you don't have to like your job in general, or like it, to enjoy the everyday aspects.

My experience is that most people don't love their job. Many like it, some tolerate it, but it is a minority who find a job that they love and that also supports their lifestyle.

Does that mean that everyone else must live in frustration, desperately searching for that perfect job that they are passionate about? Not at all.

You can and should enjoy your work. Doing so is invaluable to your life in many ways, including greatly increasing your chances of financial success. But you don't have to like your job in general, or like it, to enjoy the everyday aspects.

It's critical to distinguish between work and the way you do it. This is important because all work has aspects that will be very unpleasant for you. You need to be able to overcome them with a smile on your face.

Let me give you a personal example. Out of college I helped start a company that required me to develop a sales pattern to teach others. The nature of the sales contact was a face-to-face cold call. Unlike some of the great salespeople I've worked with since then, I DID NOT LIKE THE SALES. So much so that, for the first year, I got up every day of the week, threw up, and then went to work.

Although my specific job literally made me sick, I was proud and satisfied with the way I was doing the job. I was doing my best. Someone had to create a successful way to sell our product, and money and labor restrictions made me the best option.

Why did I put such concentrated effort into a job that I clearly didn't love? Because I needed to earn a living. I saw a significant opportunity for my partners and myself. Most importantly, it made me feel good about myself. I enjoyed undertaking something and doing my best. It made me feel better about myself and my life in general.

Passionate about work… no. Passionate about how well I did the job… yes. Fortunately, the effort paid off and we were able to hire and train others to do what I didn't like to do. For some of those people, it was their dream job. For most, it was a good way to earn a living. As for me, I moved to a job that I liked the least.

So if your boss doesn't appreciate you, you're underpaid, your company isn't ideal ... that may be fine, for now. They are not the key evaluators in your life. You are. Do your job well for YOU.
Even if you don't like your specific job or the work environment you're in, you may love the way you do it.

Be able to pat yourself on the back at the end of each day. By doing so, you also prepare yourself to find, within your company or elsewhere, a job that you will enjoy more.

And you may find, as you focus on doing better, that some of the irritants in your job become more rewarding, or at least lousy. For me, I eventually liked the sales, even though I never loved it. However, after 30 professional years, I am fortunate to have created a job that I love. It would never have happened without my previous work experiences, many of which weren't ideal.

Are you afraid of getting stuck in the same job for life? Do not worry. People who emphasize the positive and rewarding aspects of their job don't stay in unpleasant jobs that long. They get a promotion or use their positive track record to get a more satisfying job.

So, to paraphrase a verse Stephen Stills wrote,

If you can't be in the job you love ...
I love the job you're in (or the way you do it)

It will make EVERY JOB that much more enjoyable and rewarding.

But what about Passion ... Love of Life? Does that depend on finding a job that you like? No.

We all need to love life to fully benefit from it. But what parts of our lives generate that burning will vary from person to person and over time. Someone who is passionate about his job is not necessarily living his life more or less fully than someone who is passionate about his family or his music.

So, besides your job, what is your passion in life? Do you love to learn, teach or write? Are you passionate about cooking, sports, cars or clothes? Do you have a wonderful friend, lover, or family that you adore? Congratulations! You have discovered some of the things that excite you a lot in life.

Why not expand the joy in your life by regularly blocking time to participate in those activities you love, with the people you love? When it comes to cooking specialty meals, set aside one night a week aside from TV and laundry to be the chef you want to be. If that's not enough, get a part-time job as a prep cook at a restaurant you like. Make it free if you have to ... it's not your job, it's your joy.

This is not difficult to do. You just have to decide to do it. Then, on a calendar or planner that you use every day, write it down on the day you will do it. "Buy tickets for Sunday's game" (tonight), "till my garden" (Saturday), "sign up for a design course at night school" (5 pm), "read my new book" (every day at lunch). Don't take your loves for granted, plan your time with them. And that should certainly include the people you appreciate the most. Commit to regular celebration times, game times, bring them flower moments, plus routine.

Please understand that I am not encouraging you to stay in a job that makes you miserable and find all your joys elsewhere. If you don't like the job you're in, start pushing or find a better one today. And create a plan to achieve it.

But remember, as you search for that perfect job, enjoy the way you are doing your current job and keep celebrating and expanding all the other joys in life that surround you.

Do you love your son or your wife?

You have become a father because of your wife.

Similarly, you have become an employee because of your company.

There are some 'canned' managerial quotes that, "They don't love their company, but they love their job." According to me, this is a silly phrase.

How can you love your job and not your company?

Since you love your job, you will work well, but since you don't love your company, won't you work for the company? This sounds silly and stupid, you know?

Some say, if you love your company, one day you might get fired. But if it is only "there", the question of

How can you love your job and not your company?

Since you love your job, you will work well, but since you don't love your company, won't you work for the company? This sounds silly and stupid, you know?

Some say, if you love your company, one day you might get fired. But if you're just "in there", the question of kicking you out comes up, you know? Who made you "there"? Just your company. So how come you don't live your company?

So, I must say, "You must love your company that has a job for you and as a thank you to your company, which pays you, you must love your job and do it well, sincerely."

The question of love for your job or company never has a place in the world.

  • Respecting your work is essential,
  • That you like your work is good,
  • Loving your job is great,

After satisfying any of the above points,

  • That you like your company is the icing on the cake,
  • Loving your company is probably for the best.

yes i love my job

Yes, I love my job and my company. They have trusted me to get the job done, so I'm thankful that I don't have to commit 100% to the job.

Since last week, I have worked in the water and wastewater sector of various utilities for 40 years, since I got a job as an operator apprentice at the local treatment plant shortly after high school. Public service work is usually carried out by local government agencies and the payment is usually fair.

I suppose you could say that I love my work, although I would be lying if I said that it is always adorable.

Sometimes during emergencies or major breakdowns, tasks can become stressful, exhausting, and almost insurmountable (just like other jobs, I'm sure), but those times are few and far between.

Since last week, I have worked in the water and wastewater sector of various utilities for 40 years, since I got a job as an operator apprentice at the local treatment plant shortly after high school. Public service work is usually carried out by local government agencies and the payment is usually fair.

I suppose you could say that I love my work, although I would be lying if I said that it is always adorable.

Sometimes during emergencies or major breakdowns, tasks can become stressful, exhausting, and almost insurmountable (just like other jobs, I'm sure), but those times are few and far between.

Take the recent Hurricane Irma, for example, which was a direct hit from my part of Florida, with tons of wind and water damage, downed trees, and widespread power outages throughout the area.

I am part of a team that takes care of hundreds of pump stations throughout the county that send wastewater to wastewater treatment plants. After the storm we worked 12-hour shifts for weeks to get things back to normal. The main priorities were the staging of the portable generators and the repair of the damaged radiotelemetry equipment to re-establish communication.

On the bright side, teamwork and camaraderie surely feel rewarding when system functionality is fully restored.

What I like most about my job (besides the public health and environmental protection aspects) is the variety of jobs that I can do. I am never bored. I can wear a lot of hats (so to speak).

My duties include electrical maintenance of industrial automation equipment, instrumentation, pump controls, process engineering, PLC programming, SCADA 1, database management, network administration, reports, scripts, data analysis. , computer graphics and more.

What I really enjoy are the technical challenges and opportunities to implement innovative solutions using the latest technologies.

For example, 40 years ago, the common method we used to control remote pump stations (miles away) was with simple underground cables and relays that would turn a pump on or off and then send a confirmation signal to the plant. That is all.

As with other industries, the technology has improved a lot since then. Now, equipment and instrumentation at remote pump stations are monitored and controlled by redundant pathways such as underground fiber optic networks, radio telemetry, and cellular communication.

Instead of simple on / off control, everything is networked with Industrial Ethernet. All data signals are routed to servers for real-time (and historical) access using a SCADA database and graphical software that provides connectivity via VPN from any Internet connection.

From my perspective decades ago, I think it's pretty good. So yeah, even with hurricanes and countless lightning strikes wreaking havoc on the team all summer long, I really love my job.

Q: “What is a company that you love so much that you want to work for it? Do you work for that company and if you don't, would you leave your current position or take it as a second job to get the experience of working there? "

I used to think like that when I was younger. It's a really bad way of thinking about things. If we put it in business terms: it's not personal, it's just business. (This is the way companies treat their people, this is the way people should treat the companies they work for.)

Bottom line: there is no company I "like so much" that I quit a current job or want to work f

Q: “What is a company that you love so much that you want to work for it? Do you work for that company and if you don't, would you leave your current position or take it as a second job to get the experience of working there? "

I used to think like that when I was younger. It's a really bad way of thinking about things. If we put it in business terms: it's not personal, it's just business. (This is the way companies treat their people, this is the way people should treat the companies they work for.)

In short: there is no company that “loves me so much” that I would leave a current job or want to work for it.

However, I would leave a current job for a more interesting challenge, and if the company offering it made a good impression (that they weren't trying too hard, that they were sincere, that it wasn't just a job, that my efforts would be respected and I it was just one more peg in a kindergarten game of whack-a-mole, etc.). I could tell the story of a company that thought it could buy me - but that tells the whole story. I'm not interested in a lot of money and that scared them.

Here's the thing, and it's just a plain and simple life experience: what may look good, cool, or amazing in appearance ... may not be all that it seems or the best, after you get to know the company, its people, etc. Therefore, you could jump into your dream job with the company of your dreams. The funny thing about dreams: they can (and sometimes do) turn into nightmares.

Average Day-to-Day Experience: Most people can tell when you're being fake. The same goes for companies. You can and should know when a company is trying to make a certain impression. Are they being fake? Well, since that's most of the people, what are they hiding, what don't they want you to know? So let's take, for example, the interview process - that's a way for a company to get to know you and examine you, and vice versa (so that you get to know the company, the people you will be working with, etc.). BUT, if you really want a job in a company, you have to give them the right impression and accept whatever they give you, without asking them tough questions that they might not like. You wouldn't ask them, "Okay, what aren't you telling me?" (After looking at the things they have said are inconsistent). No, you can ask any question freely, do not hesitate to ask and receive honest answers. However, these are now normal, traditional or typical day-to-day operations.

As it is said about "love" in personal relationships, that being in love is like being "crazy", the same goes for maintaining excessively high thoughts or impressions of companies (that's crazy, they are business). The best thing is that you enjoy what you do and find a company culture that suits you, rather than being a fanatic obsessed with a company. (In another related way of thinking about it: Nobody likes a stalker or someone who stalks you or doesn't stop bothering you.)

As my biography says, I am a 'water researcher'.

Most people look at me blankly when I say that, and I agree, it doesn't really convey much. So here I go.

I am an assistant to a retired professor who is active in environmental and policy circles in India, and especially in Maharashtra. With him, I study the problems of the water sector in Maharashtra and India. I also assist him in the elaboration of policies for the state government; For example, we recently developed a policy to deal with the current drought affecting the State and which is now being debated in the State Cabinet.

I also assist him in the elaboration of policies for the state government; For example, we recently developed a policy to deal with the current drought affecting the State and which is now being debated in the State Cabinet.

My activities include collecting data, conducting primary analysis, and writing our research / recommendations into a document. I can present my own conclusions and policy recommendations whenever one occurs to me. I also do some secretarial work and handle a part of public relations and communication. In my (our) free time, everything is teaching and learning.

It's only been six months since I took this on; Before that, I was a research analyst at a think tank in Mumbai, where I researched water cooperation in the Middle East. My interest in water conflicts in particular and resource conflicts in general grew, and I decided to study the field further.

This is how I landed here. Until now, my research areas have been (and continue to be) the Maharashtra Water Regulatory Authority, the sugar industry, equitable water distribution and river basin management. Through these topics, I have been learning about law, politics, environment, agriculture, hydrology, politics, history, geology, and human rights.

What do I love about her? Oh, everything: the subject, the potential, the interdisciplinary knowledge, the skills, my boss, the office (it's a nice old bungalow with a big garden, a lotus pond and three adorable dogs), the colleagues and more. everything, exposure and orientation. As an assistant, I receive a stipend; Sometimes I miss my old salary, but it's not a big deal compared to everything else I'm getting.

Not a bad start :)

A friend of mine graduated with a high school certificate and went to another country to look for work. He stumbled upon a company he had admired since school days (in school we learn about the economy and the corporations that made the world today) and without hesitation he immediately applied for it.

He was rejected as there were no vacancies in the company at the moment. He got an alternative job that paid a market price, and although he worked hard for the company, he had his eye on the original company and literally "stalked" the company website and human resources department (he had a friend

A friend of mine graduated with a high school certificate and went to another country to look for work. He stumbled upon a company he had admired since school days (in school we learn about the economy and the corporations that made the world today) and without hesitation he immediately applied for it.

He was rejected as there were no vacancies in the company at the moment. He landed an alternative job that paid market price, and although he worked hard for the company, he had his eye on the original company and literally "stalked" the company website and human resources department (he had a friend who worked in the company) for any reason. possibility of a vacancy available.

One day, two years after working for his second-tier company, his friend called him and informed him of an impending vacancy due to an internal resignation.

He said goodbye the next day and arranged an immediate interview (his friend helped with the interview appointment). During the interview, he gave his best - mind, heart and soul - and GOT THE JOB.

He has been with the company for more than 12 years, was promoted only once, and while working there he received his permanent resident status, married and had 3 children.

I quite believe that "the value is in the eye of the beholder." Of course, a company that appreciates and reciprocates your steadfastness, loyalty, and dedication is also important.

Working for the company you love transmits your intrinsic values ​​(what you value, what you like, what you feel and what you want to do) with the organization through your actions, words and general influence in the construction of the work culture there .

We used to work for money. But today, I think there is a change of mind. Money is important, but if you have the opportunity to put that as a second priority, to do the things you love and to be able to do it and get paid, I think that's the priority.

It can be a very difficult experience to understand by reading or learning about the event.

One might seek to know the feeling of JOY, but if you really love your work, the span of time will not be remembered and one day you might feel strange thinking,

The more time that has elapsed, the higher the level of joy it means.

And it is the perfect experience of being involved and concentrated in the game / subject that has to give gains of all material and spiritual nature.

The concentration at work has to give knowledge in the relevant field useful for adding value.

Enjoying concentration would mean using the spirit potion or else you might have broken focus and that in itself is looking for something in addition and from within.

The one-point agenda approach makes us go through experiences that have moments of utter self-denial and less desire (unconscious) sprouting thoughts that can break the path if need be in the ongoing work.

The true joy would be experienced by the saints of a higher order, but mortals can come closer to loving work, whatever we are doing, which I have certainly been using the word as enjoy in my writings, but many times enjoy I do not know. think in the literal sense of being attached. double bass.
