Great job, we all want it. But seriously now, why don’t you still have a cool job? Because that is much more difficult than it looks, and it may seem tricky. That’s why it’s good to understand the main reasons. so you can change it.
- YOU DON’T KNOW WHEN YOU ARE SATISFIED
Oh man, this is so difficult. You are at work, behind your desk. It’s 10 a.m. on a Tuesday. You have to go all week and think: Phew I really don’t feel like it. If only I had … or if only I had … or if only I …
This is the “but syndrome”: Being dissatisfied with what you have now but having no idea what you want. When you are satisfied. Do you actually know what you indeed want ?! I mean, really serious deep down in your heart. With all the depth and details.
EVERYONE WANTS TO BECOME MARK ZUCKENBERG
Somewhere Mark Zuckerberg has pretty much become the standard, and everything underneath is very disappointing. A little over the top maybe, but somewhere in between is your goal. And as long as you have not yet established that goal, you can deal with it in two ways.
- You get stuck in this situation. You keep nagging. You stay ‘but-and’.
- You see it as that ideal vacation you are looking forward to. Anticipates this and gets to work motivated.
It is an important difference whether you take responsibility for what is actually due to you.
- IT IS HARD WORK TO FIND GOOD WORK
If you’ve ever applied, you know what a struggle that can be. Finding out what you want is 1, getting there is 2. There are two reasons why it is hard work:
A> THE PROCESS
Do you know how difficult it is to get there? You have to be constantly aware of what it is you want. Pay attention to this regularly. Entering a path with uncertainty. You have never done what you want, so can you really? You have to be patient, a lot of patience. Keep focus.
B> GETTING GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO
When it comes to the crunch, you become what you really can do well. That is why people are hired mainly on functions, not personality. If you do your job well, your customers or boss will not care how much pleasure you get out of it. You are responsible for that yourself . You are responsible for the fact that you are having a good time. Both in your search and when you are already working somewhere: you have to make it fun yourself!
But, that is only possible if you are really good at something. Only when you are good, are really good, you get more choice in what you do. You get more freedom to choose for yourself, for an employer or for your ideal customers as an entrepreneur. That doesn’t matter anymore.
- IT LASTS FOR A TIME
Man, we are so impatient. Seriously I can’t even wait five minutes for the bus without getting impatient. I really had to learn this. We want results, and NOW.
A WORK LIFE IS ANYTHING BUT EASY
Because there is so much possible. You can’t think of it as crazy or you can become it. Creative design advertising multi agency consultant , but hey there are now more jobs that you don’t know the name of than you know them about.
It is tempting to settle down . That then starts with the first to tackle what comes next. Don’t think about whether this is really something for you, but just take the money. But after six months or a year you run into the same problem again. If you can show that patience, focus and confidence in the process, then a bright future awaits you. Sure!…
