Why is it so difficult to find a job that you like?

Why is it so difficult to find a job that you like?

It is difficult because practical considerations, perceived obligations, and external pressures conspire to plant seeds of doubt.

As for not knowing what your dream career is? Try a few things, see what inspires or what feels bad. Find out where your skills apply in a field you are passionate about.

When it comes to soccer, you have journalism, leadership positions, training, administration, marketing, and many other avenues to think about. Find someone who does a job that may be a good fit for you and talk to him or her about how you got into that position, how closely it matches your idea, and if you have a

The most important thing is to do * something *.

Imagine that life is a treasure hunt and that deep personal fulfillment is a chest of gold. The map you have (books, lectures, tips, etc.) is clearly wrong or missing important information. Imagine, then, that you are on a blind hunt: the chances of stumbling upon your treasure are slim.

If you had the opportunity to liquidate or suspend your financial obligations and gain the unconditional support of those in your charge, would you be willing and willing to commit to the difficult task of deeply reevaluating every dimension of yourself?

The challenge you face seems to be dissatisfaction.

The challenge you face seems to be dissatisfaction with mediocrity. Mediocrity is not bad. However, mediocrity is safe, and security doesn't require someone to put a lot on the line.

All it takes is the monumental feat of letting go of all your fears and doubts. If you wake up one morning and are willing to say, "I'm going to do whatever it takes, through the hail, the wind, and the rain," then you can start planning something new (small is okay too) to start changing. the way you live your life.

A word of warning: only when you stare at total defeat will you know that you are on the right track to discover who you are and where your true passions lie.

Good luck!

I never made a lot of money in my life, but I will tell you that I never made a lot of money in my life, but I will tell you one thing that I never did a job that I did not love to do and I expressed it. I was not about to chase money because that is exactly why you face a problem, you decided you wanted the money, who cares about the job? Now you are paying the price. There are some things in life that you have to decide and that is one of them. Do you want to make a living or do you want to enjoy life? I wanted to enjoy life.

I never made a lot of money in my life, but I will tell you that I never made a lot of money in my life, but I will tell you one thing that I never did a job that I did not love to do and I expressed it. I was not about to chase money because that is exactly why you face a problem, you decided you wanted the money, who cares about the job? Now you are paying the price. There are some things in life that you have to decide and that is one of them. Do you want to make a living or do you want to enjoy life? I wanted to enjoy life.

I am 81 years old and I really enjoy my life. Especially now that I don't have a wife and kids. I live alone and play my music all the time. Very few times during the day that I don't have music. I just bought a new amp because the other one doesn't work. Syo, I have been playing my LPs non-stop for the last two weeks. I have probably played between 50-100 LPS during this period of time. I'm over 1800. On the way home I stopped at a THRIFT STORER to record 11 albums, none of which were produced after 1960. They were in excellent condition.

I bought them for a dollar each. They were for sale at half price. Most of the albums I bought over the years cost $ 0.50 or a dollar. Most of them are in near perfect condition. I don't buy them unless they are. Some of my records date back to 1954.

This afternoon I was listening to Dennis Brain, who at 25 was an amazing Freach Horn player but died in a Sport Caran accident. It was a pity. It was so good. Then I was listening to one of the early Van Cliburn. He made a lot of albums. Hard to believe he was from Texas. The next album was Claudio Arau playing all CHOPIN NOCTURNES. He was not an incredible pianist. When you get on the list of Russian pianists it becomes more exciting.

This is how I entertain myself. I don't use television. I think it's a waste of time. Who the hell wants to see all the damn ads that I know not? However, I have to put up with it with Pandora. I don't want to spend $ 50 a year to get Pandora for free. I did it last year and enjoyed it, but I don't want to spend the money anymore so I try to MENTALLY turn it off. Of course I have maybe 1500 CDs. A dear friend of mine destroyed himself at 58, so his sister gave me what was left. It is an impressive collection.

Just trying a bunch of things and trusting your own decisions and choices.

You can't be sure what you really want when you start out. How could you know if you didn't even have a chance to try? You can listen to other people, their recommendations, but even if you do, you can't be sure what you really want.

Start somewhere. Preferably choose something that you can get excited about. Continue from there.

Don't worry if you make the wrong decision. It's not the end of the world. There are no limits to the number of choices (tests) you can make.

Have you tried one thing? That is usually not enough

Just trying a bunch of things and trusting your own decisions and choices.

You can't be sure what you really want when you start out. How could you know if you didn't even have a chance to try? You can listen to other people, their recommendations, but even if you do, you can't be sure what you really want.

Start somewhere. Preferably choose something that you can get excited about. Continue from there.

Don't worry if you make the wrong decision. It's not the end of the world. There are no limits to the number of choices (tests) you can make.

Have you tried one thing? Usually that is not enough. You have to keep trying.

Okay, there is a limit: our life, but I think you already know what I mean. People often think that they would need a new life for each new career. There is no better way to limit your options in life. So I answer that we should allow ourselves unlimited options (limited only by our life).

There is no rule about where you should be in your life at a certain age. There really isn't. It is a rule that society is trying to impose on all of us, but we don't have to abide by this rule. It's always best to think of it as something we can do (we can live by this rule), which means that we won't feel compelled to live by it.

Who is in the best position to find something they like to do? A person who believes that there is a short deadline (usually our 30s), and that by now he should have achieved this and that in his life, or a person who decided to screw up this silly rule and allowed himself unlimited trials.

I can almost hear all those people telling you how stupid my advice is. That I am encouraging people to spend their entire lives (say 80 or 90 years) finding this one thing. But that's not what I stand for.

Your decision to allow yourself unlimited testing does not mean that you will die trying. I don't know, maybe there are people who reach old age and still have no idea. But if that's the case with them, I bet those people never really listened to their instincts, never trusted their own decisions, and still relied on other people's opinions and recommendations, and adapted to other people's expectations. I just can't imagine a person who would live their whole life, trust their instincts, trust their own judgment and choices, and still have no idea what it is that they enjoy. That would be really weird.

It's about giving up the silly belief that you only have this time and no more. Or that you may only have one job in your life (maybe two, if you change your mind early enough).

Don't worry that you could spend your whole life looking for this thing. Worry that the alternative is to spend most of your days doing the things you hate because society brainwashed you into believing that you are supposed to have a job in your life.

As for the process of finding this thing.

Imagine yourself standing at the foot of a ladder. Hoping that one day you can see the staircase in its entirety from there is a lost proposition. You have to take that first step, then the next, and then the next.

This ladder does not represent a single career field. Imagine that at each step there are small tiles representing a myriad of different races / fields / intersections / options, etc. Everything available to you. You can choose and try whatever you want. You do not like? Go to the next one. Did you find something that excites you and is in tune with your talents? You can stay as long as you want. You don't need to go any further now. Instead, try digging deeper. Explore the depth. Bored? Not exactly what you thought it would be? Move two inches to the right or left (trust your choices / your gut). Still not there? Maybe it's time to look at the next step and explore it a bit?

Each little token is like your current goal. You say to yourself "Now I will go there and see". What will get you there is a plan (a planned course of action). But don't forget that your plan is never perfect and may need some tweaking.

Don't get paralyzed by having spent some time / money / effort exploring an option. Don't let that be the limiting factor. Whatever you have invested is never enough to justify sacrificing the rest of your life (dedicating the next 40 years of your life to something you hate doing). Just imagine that you do what you hate every day for the next X years. And every year (month, week, day, hour, minute, second) spent doing what you hate could be spent doing something you enjoy. It should be enough to convince you that the investment is not reason enough to stick with it.

It is important because they cannot be happy with only good income. They need to feel valued, appreciated, belonging and assimilated in their company / family. They need to be treated with courage and respect. Money is not the only motivational tool. This is why many corporations fail. Due to their treatments, they cannot keep their employees long-term, employees curse and continue to work as long as they can hold out and money doesn't always work out because value and respect are not in the first place.

There are many ways to show your love, care, and appreciation to your employees. If you want

Due to their treatments, they cannot keep their employees long-term, employees curse and continue to work as long as they can hold out and money doesn't always work out because value and respect are not in the first place.

There are many ways to show your love, care, and appreciation to your employees. If you want to be successful in your business life, try to make them happy, don't worry, it is not a one-way happiness, you will be happy in return and you will benefit a lot.

You can try these ways;

In my opinion; The First Key is FOOD because for centuries, Food has come first for the formation of cultures and friendships. It is also the main reason for the need to work.

  • Whenever available, have lunch or breakfast with them. Try to eat what they eat (if you don't provide food in the company) tell them what you order for me, friends! And don't be picky about the food, even if they offer you their food, even if it is any kind of traditional (edible) food that you have never tried before, at least give it a try, get a small piece and ask about the way they cook? what spices do you use? They will be happy because you are eating with them and sharing your food with them, besides that you are curious and interested even in their gastronomic culture, you are humble, you are like them.
  • If you provide food together, eat with them and ask if they are happy with the menu. How would they prefer? Any ideas for creating a new menu (affordable insurance)? Any ideas for a rewarding menu day? Therefore, they can look forward to that rewarding menu day highly motivated. Maybe on Wednesdays?

You must show that you value them and when you have points in common with them more than money, salary, work purposes, so that all of you are happier!

I suggest that you organize outdoor activities because they will feel part of your team, they will wake up and their team spirit will make sense and their ties between them will become stronger. They will be much better acting as a team all together, more assimilated to their team.

Here are some activities you can organize for your employees:

  • Paint Ball Weekends
  • Cycling weekend
  • Hiking and camping weekend
  • Swimming weekend
  • Live Music Party Weekend
  • Adventures of the house of terror

Do you want more fun?

  • Gossip Day, yes, it's fun and spit out the words on the day. When you organize and manage it in a good mood, everyone will enjoy a lot and get rid of the burdens on their heads! First let them know that it is a kind of survey for the improvement of the works, they are a great companion and a great team, even when it comes to works they know how to help each other, handle things even warn and guide themselves in any necessary case. etc. Make sure they are good enough and that no one takes it personally and takes offense or misinterprets. And let them complain, let the fun and laughter begin!
  • If they hesitate to tell (the shy ones), what do they think of their teammates? Who is sweating, who is not? Which are the main problems? What is there beyond your unhappiness? etc. you offer to write down everything they think of and name it, put their letters in "VALUE BOX / treasure box / magic box, whatever works. Then, maybe in a good mood, you can convince your teammates to choose the letters and read them in front of everyone, yeah, that would be a lot of fun and fun for all of you!
  • You can even make a Suggestion Box, tell them that you are very grateful to them, you care a lot about their opinions, you would be very happy to have their opinions on any point xxxx to improve the company all together. When they notice that your suggestions are under evaluation, they will be producing many more ideas!

Do you want to sweat?

  • Organize "Ask Me" days, (if your friends are in counting numbers) to have fun and fight lol! In this way, they will feel that you really value them, because you take the time to listen to them and try to better solve problems.

Happy Hours Rocks!

  • One Friday a month "after work party" at the office / factory / or anywhere else? A happy hour (just one hour or you decide). I suggest that you organize it in the workplace because they will feel more assimilated to their workplace.

Happy Hour events really rock! No matter what event it is, it works great!

I know that all types of these events need a budget, I am sure you can create a financial pool for these events, force yourself to make a budget because ON THE RETURN, HIGH MOTIVATION OF YOUR EMPLOYEES WILL INCREASE YOUR SALES, FACILITIES IN VERY SATISFACTORY QUANTITIES!

These are some basic tips, surely there are many ways to show your love, affection and appreciation to your employees. You can mention your thanks in words, as a thank you for adding value to all of us, thank you for all your efforts, I really appreciate it! Let them think they belong in the FAMILY and that you appreciate them!

Good luck!

I have been in the same position, it is demoralizing, but it is not just a matter of perspective, you have to address what is in front of you and face it head-on.

  1. If he got the job, then someone thought he could do it and do it well. So go ahead. They value you more than you probably think.
  2. Start by setting some goals, remember to make them challenging but achievable. Then, reward yourself when you get it, take the family out for a meal, or treat yourself to a new book or movie. Be good to yourself (and set the next goal)
  3. Study your role, get it right and very soon you will find that

  3. Study your role, get it right, and you will soon discover that you are competent. This is part of a cycle, you will get recognition for doing your job well and that will give you confidence, which in turn will push you to do your job even better. (But be careful, too much confidence can lead to complacency, and that's when the cycle will reverse. So don't be complacent.)
  4. You may wonder if your work is just a means to an end or an end in and of itself. If it isn't either, go fishing another one. In the meantime, do your job well and that will give you confidence when you go to an interview.
  5. Keep learning, change something outside of your job, take a class, sign up for one of those free internet courses (there are hundreds). You are preparing, you are hatching your escape plan.
  6. Imagine that you go to work tomorrow and everything is amazing, you are valued, challenged, trusted and recognized. All good, you're in line for a promotion. Visualize this, how does it feel? If that sentiment gets a 10 and you're on, say a 2 or a 3. How do you earn one more spot on the line?
  7. Watch a really funny movie tonight. You know the one.


So good luck, tell us how it went.

First, you need to rephrase the question: "How do I find love in my current profession?"

Unless you try every profession imaginable for a few weeks, months, or years, you will never know that you have found the right profession that you like. Remember, finding a profession is not like buying a new car that you can try. You have to decide what you think you are good at, what you were educated at, what you have already tried and liked or not. Then dive into something that you think has a good chance of succeeding.

Once you get going, it's totally up to you to love

You have to decide what you think you are good at, what you were educated at, what you have already tried and liked or not. Then dive into something that you think has a good chance of succeeding.

Once you get going, it's totally up to you to love what you do. The best way to find love in your profession is by problem solving. Every business has many problems that it will encounter on a daily basis, regardless of job, company, profession, or location. You have to treat each problem as a challenge and work hard to solve it. When you do, there's nothing like the satisfaction you get from accomplishing something that will please the company, your colleagues, clients, or senior management.

12 years ago I lived in a small town in Illinois. I knew quite well a cardiologist in that city. We became good friends. One day he confided to me that he hated going to work every day. Here was the doctor who made more money than all other doctors and engineers because of his specialty, and he did not love his job. I couldn't help but think how lucky I was to have a job as Head of Engineering where I had to address various issues related to product design, quality, cost, customer complaints, competition, etc. my team and I face each other every day. But we managed to overcome them, develop new products, introduce new technology, and see our efforts result in higher sales and profits. By the way, everyone in my department benefited from a higher salary and recognition for their accomplishments. Isn't that what life is all about?

My cardiologist friend was saving people's lives, making them live longer and healthier, giving their families more joy and satisfaction. However, he did not think he was happy. He was bored, unmotivated, uninterested in what he was doing.

Do you see the difference between these two examples?

In 2004, I was offered a Junior Research Fellowship (GATE) at the Central Institute for Electrochemical Research, a CSIR laboratory. So I was a recent inexperienced chemical engineering graduate. The fellowship involved work in chemistry and microbiology with no engineering requirements. For those who have no idea, chemical engineering and chemistry are miles apart.

I worked there for two full years due to lack of better opportunities. I was good at the job and I got paid for it, even though I was constantly applying for other relevant jobs. Until I quit work, I never liked it, as there was no connection between

I worked there for two full years due to lack of better opportunities. I was good at the job and I got paid for it, even though I was constantly applying for other relevant jobs. Until I quit the job, I never liked it, as there was no connection between the job and engineering education. I used to say that a chemistry person would do a better job than me. It is for the sake of the experience and there is no better option than I worked there.

When I was working for a design consultancy in Maharashtra, I vividly remember a conversation with the head of the process department. He once asked, "Why do you work?" I said, "work contributes to improving people's lives in a small way." He said no. They all work for money ”. Looking back, is money a by-product or the main product itself?

If one looks at the image of Ikigai, most people seek professional and vocational degrees and education. Passion, as in most marriages, goes out the window in a few years. Over time, most people stop loving their work when it is affected by monotony.

People often don't see the big picture and seek short-term benefits. Passion and Mission are long-term goals that we lose sight of, for the good of the profession.

A famous Tamil song from a movie, Dhoni has the lyrics "vaangum panaththukkum 1 ..." which means "there is no connection between postgraduate education and work", implying that people eventually work for money. It seems strange but true for a lot of people.

A good number of people don't know their true potential and it takes a lot of work to find it. Self-actualization is not to everyone's liking.

"Forest for the trees"

When contemplating the beauty of the trees, most forget the forest. Trees are the money here. I leave it to you to find your forest.

Most of them end up in a completely foreign job. But they try to do better, but they don't earn a sense of job satisfaction.

I still haven't found the job I love and I hope I keep looking for it. I am currently a freelance writer, trying my hands in this area. I'm looking forward to doing this for a while and began to fulfill the dream by learning the art of freelancing. Freelance work can be done in any area without seeking any return benefits, especially money in the early stages of doing so. Once you get the hang of the field, you can expect a lot.

Most of them end up in a job for the good of society and for living rather than pursuing their passion. Many factors attribute to this behavior money, family, security and savings above all, so that they earn enough to pursue what they love at a time when they feel enough to do so.

I suggest that you continue with your work. These days it has become an exaggeration to follow your passion, but not all of us are able to find what we are really passionate about. While some people easily find their passions in reading and writing, their might be N no. of things that we never got to taste, much less realizing our passion for it.

Second, what feels like passion to us for a few hours a week can be tedious if you are pursuing a career in it. For example, let's say you love to write, but only when you have sudden bursts of inspiration. So maintaining a blog where you share your reviews from time to time would be fun, but if you join a magazine where you are asked to submit your work very often, you may not be able to maintain the quality of your job won't. enjoy it so much. The bottom line is that if something seems like a passion while it's a hobby, it might not feel the same when it's pursued as a career.

Third, you can explore various things as you work. In this way, you may be able to find your passion and if you really find something enjoyable and something that you feel is worth pursuing a career in.

It is obvious that they have forgotten what it is like to be young and inexperienced, or that you are setting goals too high.

When I was 17, it was impossible for me to get a job as an IT engineer without experience, so I worked in a factory (which I hated). I used that time to learn, then got a junior IT position, with a very low salary, after they saw that I had some work experience under my belt. Several years later, after working my way up the chain to becoming an IT manager, I quit that job to become a graphic designer, which I gained through years of IT and administration, and studied at home.

Big question !! It can be difficult but not impossible.

The most important thing, you know?

  • Why do you have so many likes and dislikes?
  • what do you want from your life
