Career

April 21, 2008

Most of us spend eight to 10 hours a day at work and very little time with our loved ones. While we are choosy about who we relate with intimately, we spend years doing work we can’t stand and that may be completely opposed to our personal values.

Work is a huge part of our daily routine, yet how many of us really enjoy it? Do you find yourself complaining about your work, but feel powerless to change it? Or complaining that you are still working your corporate job when you’d really like to do something else? This feeling of helplessness is not a nourishing lifestyle.

Few things are more rewarding in life than meaningful and exciting work. You feel confident and stimulated. Time stops, and the outside world fades away. You are totally absorbed and energized by it. Doesn’t it make sense to work on something you are passionate about?
