People usually speak from experience. And your parents want you to have the best life you can possibly have. But when they give you advice they think of the world they new. The world where you had no choices. Where you worked for the same company for 50 years and excepted horrible treatment because that was all there was.
These days it’s uncommon to know someone who’s working for the same company for ten years. People like to grow, to feel like they have an impact on their workplace. After all, you spend most of your day at work, might as well enjoy it. I completely understand that work pays the bills. And that it’s something you have to do, not something that is considered fun. But it can be.
If you were going to work on projects you love. If you were going to meet the people you love working with. Wouldn’t that be an experience you would enjoy waking up to? So why not do it? Why not focus on what you want? And instead of telling yourself you can’t do it, find out how you can.
I’d love to know what you guys like. What would your perfect life look like? your perfect job. Leave a comment below.
