What is it about work?

Work is so important to most of us. Why? So much of our identity, in western society, is attached to the work we do.  That’s one of the things that makes our country so great – and so obsessive. It’s the yin yang of our society.

Physicists define work as the transfer of energy. I think this applies to the everyday world of work as well. Think of how much energy most of us invest in either doing work, explaining work, loving work, hating work, looking for work, searching for happiness through work or avoiding work. It’s an incredible amount of energy.

I think it’s about time that we took control of the work in our lives and made conscious decisions about it rather than having it control us.

Too many people feel trapped. Break out of the victim mode. Take back your life. Schedule time with a good career coach. Get moving – the time to begin is now. Every long journey begins with the first step.
