Often it is said that we should find a job that we really like , because only then, we would not have to work a single day.

We know that something like this is not exactly easy, since in order to live, sometimes many people are forced to carry out a professional performance that does not fit their tastes , or even their values.

However, this should not be so. If we are to spend much of our days in an environment that is hostile to us and that violates our principles, sooner or later it will affect our emotional health and consequently, our physical health.

Life is too short to have the wrong job.

Therefore, as far as we could, we should be able to perform an activity that more or less conforms to our talent and above all, to that satisfaction that you find doing something for what you feel useful, it feels good.

We invite you to reflect on it.

Time to work and time to live

If you know “the theory of the three eights” you will  know, without a doubt, that the ideal would be to have an 8-hour working day that would allow us, in turn, to have 8 hours of leisure and 8 hours to rest or sleep .

We also know that this proportion is not always met . What are the overtime hours and of course, the time we spend on journeys or those broken days that make us lose, sometimes, a few valuable hours.

Experts in work psychology usually distinguish 3 types of profiles when facing the work and the complex contexts that surround us. They would be the following.

1. Those who hate their work

In this first dimension are those people who, due to circumstances, have reached a point where they hate their work.

  • This can happen when there are factors such as bad management that does not value workers and that “exploits” or even in certain environments where the competitiveness or pressure of certain colleagues cause us to go to work with disgust, stress and discomfort .

2. Those who do what they do

In this part is undoubtedly the great majority of the population. Work is, after all, a necessity and an obligation. So we try to do our best.

However, we fall into a certain resignation where we never stop dreaming about getting a better life or the lottery.

  • Without an incisive and almost destructive discomfort as in the previous case, sometimes, due to routine or even lack of high motivation, people are losing their vital energy.
  • Little by little we fall into the drift of apathy and into a routine so suffocating where stress and anxiety can appear because there is no personal satisfaction . Because there is an internal dissonance.
  • The work becomes in the end a process and not something that defines us and that makes us feel useful or proud of ourselves. Although there are many interindividual differences, many people may end up suffering depressions for these causes.

3. Those who love what they do

In this group are those who have found a vital purpose that defines and identifies them. For them, working is not an obligation but their personal sense .

  • With their work they not only promote their own satisfaction but also improve the quality of life of others.
  • The people who work in what they love and who have, above all, been lucky enough to find a medium or context that values ​​their abilities , work by vocation.
  • The word vocation comes from Latin and means  “a call that comes from within to put our voice into action” . This dimension is an aspect that we should all discover and find the means to carry it out.

  • The knowmad may be a young or mature person who knows he has some skills that can be useful to others and want to transmit.
