Lost Sight of Your Job Meaning? It is Time to Take Stock
Do you work very hard? How many hours a day or a week are you at work?
Is your job stressful? Does it tire you out? Are you passionate about your work? Does it give you a sense of fulfillment?
Some of us treat our jobs solely as a means to an end – the purpose of work is to earn the money that is needed for many things in life, from food to shelter to transportation to education to healthcare as well as to entertainment.
There are others among us who are deeply passionate about what they do, believing strongly in the causes which they work towards.
In terms of enjoyment, there are varying degrees, and while some people really love their jobs – some could even enjoy their work as much as a hobby – some others may totally loathe theirs. Most of us are somewhere in between those two ends of the spectrum.
Whichever the case, when it comes to work, I’ve realized that it’s very common for people to work so hard and get so caught up in their jobs that they lose a bit of direction and sense of what’s going on. After a while, they become overworked, tired and jaded and begin to ask themselves the pertinent question – why am I doing this?
Even those who first start out really loving and enjoying their jobs, or those who were very passionate about their work at the beginning, sometimes still seem to find themselves falling into this situation.
That’s why I feel it’s important to always revisit the objectives behind why you are doing what you are doing. It’s important to take a step back and take stock of why you are here and where you are going. It’s also important to learn to pace yourself, and it’s important to take a break every now and then to rest and recharge.
