  • Secrets for a Balanced Life #8
    Do Satisfying Work

Most people spend a lot of time at work (8+ hours a day). A large part of your life is interacting with the people at work. It is very important that you have motivation and find enjoyment with the type of work you are doing. Try to seek employment related to your interests.

Why do we Work?

Ask that question of most people and they'll say it's to earn money. Yet, when they're asked what they would do if they won the lottery or if they had more money than they wanted or needed, many people say they would continue working - not necessarily full time or at the same job, but at some form of work. So, why else do people work?

To feel we are part of a group and be accepted.  Being noticed, liked and accepted gives us a sense of belonging.

To feel good about ourselves. Levels of self-confidence and self-esteem are raised when we can do certain things well or when others say we've done a good job.

To feel fulfilled. People who find their jobs fulfilling see work as an opportunity to gain more knowledge, develop new skills and reach new goals.
