Here at Lady Like You we’re passionate about the pursuit of job satisfaction. The whole purpose of this website is to provide inspiration for career women who agree with this ethos, so here are four reasons to commit to finding a job you love.
- You spend way too much time at work
Let’s start with the most obvious one. Yes, you’ve likely already heard somebody tell you that you spend too much time at work to do a job you loathe, but it bears repeating. Just think about the proportion of your day, week and year that you spend in the workplace (whether you work full-time or not).
- You’ll be motivated to work to your full potential
When you enjoy your work you want to do it well, and working to your full potential could lead to limitless career opportunities in addition to you feeling great about yourself and your capabilities. Doing just enough to get by can lead to feelings of mediocrity as well as a sense of unfulfillment.
- It’s the ultimate act of self-care
The concept of self-care has gained much popularity in recent years, and rightfully so. It’s about the importance of taking care of yourself, however that may manifest itself. Soaking in a warm bath, reading a book, going for a walk, spending time with family – doing more of whatever makes you feel good. That’s why doing a job you enjoy has to be one of the key elements of self-care considering how much time we spend at work in order to earn a living.
- You’ll wake up looking forward to the day ahead
Believe it or not, there are people in the world who wake up in anticipation of the day ahead. Wouldn’t it be amazing to start your day in a great mood, looking forward to going to work? And haven’t you noticed that if you start your day feeling happy that the same energy typically stays with you until you go to bed?
What’s your current job status? Are you one of the lucky ones who love what they do for a living, or are you still on the hunt for your perfect role?
