Logic Of The Day: 09.01.2019.
You probably spend at least 50% of your waking hours at work, going to work, or thinking about work. And to be honest, that percentage is quite modest. For most of us, work consumes almost 80% of our time and energy. It’s on our minds all the time.
It’s not a surprise that 1 out of 2 people is unhappy with their careers. We trade our precious time for frustration and money. Ever thought about that? Four years ago, I was also frustrated with my career. And because your job plays such an important role, my whole life felt like shit.
I’m not saying you should love your work at all times and that your career should be one big party. No, some days I also don’t like my current career. But I’m 100% comfortable with the way I spend my time.
You see what I’m getting at? A fulfilling career is about multiple factors that you must get right. Otherwise, you will end up hating your life. Specifically, I’ve learned there are four pillars of a fulfilling career. Most of us only get one or two of these pillars right. But like you and I both know; an unstable foundation does not last. If the foundation of a house requires four pillars, you can’t get away with using only two.
You might get away with three, but if you want to have a house that lasts for decades, it’s smart to use all pillars. And it’s the same for our careers.
