Are you working? If you are, then you have a job to do. You may not like what you’re doing, but you shouldn’t complain. If you don’t like what you’re doing, do something else in your career.
Life’s too short to be unhappy.
I was watching a football game over the weekend and when one of the coaches was interviewed at halftime about his team’s poor performance. When the interviewer asked the coach what the problems were with his team the coach said “Every player has a job to do but the problem is, not every player is doing their job” Interesting, isn’t it?
In all professions, including sports, everyone has a job to do. And, if you perform your job the way its designed to be done you will achieve success and win! But if you don’t like what you’re doing, and you’re constantly complaining about it, how can you perform in your job? The answer is, you can’t.
I know that some people complain about everything. In fact, I know some people that would complain if they won the lottery. I am not kidding. Hopefully you’re not like this because in any job or career you will have unpleasant tasks to do. And that will never change, regardless of the career you choose. So, what’s the answer?
Make sure you enjoy what you’re doing in your career, but with the understanding that not everything you will have to do in your job will be exciting or fun. I think that’s why they call it “work”, right? The main thing to remember is, we all have a job to do so why complain? If you find yourself complaining all the time, it’s time to change what you’re doing.
Don’t be so naïve to think that everything you do in your job and your career are supposed to be exciting and fun all the time, because it won’t be. But you have to make sure you’re working in the right position and working in the right industry for you. That’s the key. If you don’t like what you’re doing now, it’s not the company’s fault it’s yours.
All positions, and I don’t care if it’s a professional athlete, actor, entertainer, doctor, politician, engineer, architect, salesman, advertising executive, policeman, fireman, broadcaster or even a professional recruiter, has tasks during the course of a day, week, month or year, that are unpleasant to do. EVERY POSITION! So the key for you is to find the right position in the right industry, because you will always have some type of unpleasant task to do – in any profession! I hope this helps.
Good luck to you!
