8 hours a day, 7 days a week - this is how much time we spend at work. Needless to say that for some of us work becomes home. Statistically, a lot of couples are formed in the working environment, as this is the most common place for people with the same interests to meet. You end spending most of your day at work and the other half of your day commuting to work. Thus, it is extremely important to make sure that you have chosen a profession that you like and that you are enjoying what you are doing. Let's not hide the truth, most of us, will have a Love-Hate relationship with our jobs. The few lucky ones, will actually never think of work as WORK because they are spending their time doing something that they love. So how do you find that profession, job, etc. that you like? How do you make the right choice? Is it by going to the right university or by letting life take you where you need to be?
Honestly, a good majority of people ends up doing something they do not actually have a degree in. Let's not talk about doctors, lawyers, etc. people who chose these as a profession, they probably ended up where they wanted to be and thankfully so. Let's focus on the other jobs. I for one, always knew that my ideal workplace would be in publishing. Yet due to some obstacles on the way, I did not receive a degree in literature nor did I study journalism. And yet by some miracle, I am working in a publishing house today. Should we then just listen to our hearts and follow our dreams?
Of course, we are always under a lot of pressure from our loved ones "Choose a job that pays well". How many happy millionaires do you know? Of course, we all need jobs that pay our bills, let's be honest here, and yes this is the reality. But if we only work on these basis, we are wasting so much time of our life when we could be using our potential to be doing so much more with our lives. Wealth comes and goes and your heart and passion remains. Think about it.
8 hours a day, 7 days a week - make every moment count.
