Do I really want to go to work?
July 7, 2010 5 Comments
Most of us wake up every morning and go through the same daily routine to get ready for work. We fight our way in the crowded streets to reach the office (work place) just on time or few minutes late, or sometimes, few hours late! We dread the long working hours, complain about the extra work they dumped on us and sometimes we complain that we have nothing to do, just plain boring. We long for a vacation, long public holiday or occasional sick leave to relax for few days. If you just started working then you will be full of energy and would be looking forward to change the world. If you have worked for more that 10 years you would definitely know that you can change just small part of your daily routine. Some of us have worked for more than 20 years and asking them self “when will I be able to retire!” or why don’t I get that easy job in the corner office to just sign few papers every day to enjoy your especial cup of coffee. You would tell yourself that you deserve that easy job because you have earn it.
Occasionally, we get the thought of quitting, retiring or switching jobs but we forget or dismiss that thought after few minuets . However, few of us would seriously think about it and have difficult time deciding. The best way to know if you should quit, retire or switch jobs would be that morning routine. If you wake up in the morning but feel that you do not want to go to work, then it is time for you to make a decision about it. The decision would be based on not wanting to go to work because you do not want to go. This decision would not be applicable if you are physically tired, sleepy or sick. You would positively know that you just do not want to work at the same place because you hate working there. This is a gut feeling that you can not explain, but your body your brain and your legs would all tell you that they hate going to work at the same place. You should plan your future of either retiring, looking for another job, or shutting your mouth and stay at your current job until things get better. Never leave your job while you have financial commitments or family to feed with no other source of income to replace your monthly salary. Tomorrow when you wake up in the morning ask yourself “do I really want to go to work?
