We all want to feel a sense of purpose when we go to work each day. We want to feel as if life is full of possibilities and that we are working towards something meaningful. But, according to research, many of us don’t feel that way. In fact, in recent years, there has been a drastic drop in people who report enjoying what they do each day. It can be hard to break out of that cycle. If you have a job you don’t enjoy, when are you to find the time to think about what you really want to do? And if you figure that out (no small task) when are you to find the time to pursue work in that area? Most of us know that simply seeking work is a full-time task. It’s no wonder so many people feel stuck. Most Americans feel dissatisfied in their work. Are you one of them?


You “live for the weekend”

You don’t consider work part of your real life. Your real life starts on the weekend. Work is just something you have to do to pass the time until the weekend comes around again, but you even spend some time at work emailing friends about what you’ll do this weekend and scheming for the weekend.
