Is Misemployment Making Your Life Miserable?
Consider this: a full two-thirds of our time is spent at work each day, but as many as 9 out of 10 of full-time workers are employed in the wrong jobs. Sometimes they just can’t seem to find the right fit for their abilities, but other times they don’t even know what that perfect fit is. So they find themselves spending the vast majority of their days in a job that leaves them with little to no satisfaction. These professionals typically either hop from job to job, in search of fulfillment but finding only stress and little to no change in their situation, or they get stuck in one dead-end position that leaves them miserable.
And that unhappiness that takes up at least eight hours of each day doesn’t disappear when the clock strikes five p.m., either; it often transfers into their personal lives as well, bringing tension and agony between unhappy professionals and their loved ones.
