Guys, we’re a long time working. From the age of fifteen or eighteen or twenty-one, we’re all thrown into the working world, either part-time or full.

And more often than not, we stay that way until we’re sixty-five or so! That’s potentially fifty years of working.

Not only that, we spend the majority of our weeks at work too. So, it’s definitely important for us to be able to enjoy the work that we do.

Yet, so many of us are unfulfilled. Why is that?

Why do we let ourselves get bored or down or accept that it’s okay to dislike being at work? When you spend such a long time working, isn’t it better to love your job instead?

Let’s take a look at what you can do to make a change.

Be Honest With Yourself

First of all, you have to sit down and think. You need to uncover why you’re not fulfilled and what will remedy this.

It may take time, but it’s important for you to work out what you actually want to do for a job.

Start Side Hustling

Then, the next step might simply be to start doing something in your spare time.

If you’re someone that wants to start a business or a lifestyle brand or launch a product, or even go freelance, now is the time to start. So just start and see where it takes you.

Go Back to School

Maybe you didn’t end up on the path you wanted, but the path your parents wanted for you? Or what you were pushed into by your school?

Then maybe it’s time for you to get back on track? For this, you could go back to school and do it right.

Whether you want to do your aacsb accredited mba program or something more niche, look into your options.

You could even do this in your own time while working, so as still to make money.


Or maybe you have no idea what you want to do, but you know you want to live. And you’ve always wanted to see the world or travel?

When this is the case, then maybe you need to quit your job to travel?

Don’t do it off the cuff, of course. Instead, think about saving up the money you need to travel with, spend some time planning what you’re going to do, and then make the leap.

Then as you’re away, you can decide what you’re going to do next.

Make a Drastic Change

But then also, it could be that you are stuck on a path that doesn’t make you happy, and you really want to do something different instead?

When this is the case, then you really need to make a change and quick. Apply for that job you’ve always wanted – even if it’s entry level.

Get an internship. Find a mentor. Just do what you need to do to make the changes necessary.

Then, when you are on the right path, you’ll realize how great it feels to do a job you love.
