Are you feeling unhappy in your career these days?
Discovering what you really want to do with your life is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. And your career plays a big role in that decision.
Have you ever really thought about just how much time you spend at work? I invite you to consider it.
For many of us, a large portion of our days is spent at work. In fact, the average career professional spends over a quarter of their life, and in many cases even more, at their place of work. And if you are unhappy with where you are now, I’d say that’s a long time to be dissatisfied.
Reports indicate that the average career professional between the ages of 20-65 will spend over 90,000 hours at work during the course of a lifetime. I’m sure you can imagine that with these types of numbers, it’s a pretty sure bet that your job will have a huge impact on the quality of your life.
Unfortunately, long-gone are the days where employers managed and directed the career of their employees. It’s now up to you to manage your own career. And while the current job market is an extremely competitive terrain, career professionals today must plan and navigate their own career pathways and do so with clear intentions in order to arrive at their desired destination.
What this means for you is that pinning down your dream job is essential in order to keep whatever amount of time you do spend in the workplace a happy and productive experience.
So wouldn’t you agree that it makes sense that you dedicate some quality time figuring out what is the right career fit for you? Like, what do you dream of being, doing, and having over the course of your professional life?
You don’t want to end up putting in these types of hours and being miserable and unhappy forever, do you?
