Here are some thoughts about how to make
your work a more enjoyable experience.
1. First of all, it’s important to understand that
Work is mental or physical EFFORT
done in order to achieve a purpose or result.
In other words, work is what you do, not who you are.
For example, if you say you are a carpenter,
Your work is the EFFORT you put forth to get
the job done. You may not like being a carpenter,
but you can feel good about the EFFORT
(your work) you put into doing the job.
Always focus on your effort.
2. Your ideal work is that which allows you to
express your personal interests and abilities in
what you do. When your work is very different
from your personal interests and seems like it’s just
a job that has to be done, focus on what it empowers
you to do. Focus on the fact that it gives you income
and purchase power. It gives you the freedom to
enjoy life in a way that you would not be able to do
without the job. Focus on the benefits.
3. If you have coworkers, do all you can to nurture
good relationships with them. Develop friendships.
In many cases, the best part of your job is the people
you work with. It makes work more enjoyable when
you look forward to being with people you like.
Focus on co-worker friendships.
4. It helps to have hobbies and interests you really
enjoy doing outside your job setting. Having these
interests allows you to express yourself and find
fulfillment in ways you can’t achieve on the job.
This helps to give your life an important sense
of balance and increases your feelings of
happiness. Focus on balance.
