Act Now or Forever Hate Your Job

This post is written by guest Chuch Westbrook who is the author of I Hate Your If you like my site and also want to nuke your job, I suggest you visit Chuck’s site because he hates our jobs as well!

Imagine yourself a year from now still stuck in the same job you have
now. Does that thought make you cringe? Well, it’s a real possibility.

If you’re in a bad situation at work, your entire life is probably
stressful. When you wake up in the morning, you are exhausted. When
you arrive home, you are wiped out. Having the drive and the energy
to make a change is very difficult. That’s why so many people stay in
jobs that they hate and why you are in danger of doing the same thing.

Here’s the bad news, it’s not going to get any easier to make a change
as you wait. There’s a vicious cycle related to hating your job which
I wrote about in my second post ever on my site,

“HateYour Job, No Time Like the Present”:

The cycle goes like this: You get a new job and are optimistic. The newness of it makes it okay and more money is good. The newness wears off. You hate your job and realize it’s a bad fit. You are close to a raise/promotion. You stick it out in hopes that things will be better then. You get promoted and are optimistic! The newness of it makes it okay and more money is good. The newness wears off… etc…

It gets worse. After a few of these cycles, the promotions come less frequently, and you’ve gotten adjusted to that higher level of income. You spend more and more time in the “You hate your job and realize it’s a bad fit” stage. Like an addiction, it becomes that much harder to quit the longer you’ve been at it.

Each time you find yourself feeling miserable about your job, take a
moment and jot down some options for how you can make change sooner
rather than later. Work From Home Jobs gives you real, practical tips for
earning a little cash online, for example. Start trying some of them
out. Reach out to your network about making a change. Explore what
it is you’d rather be doing. Think about what part time or freelance
work you could do in the short term. Read books on your dream and go
for it.

I told you so.

I can’t tell you exactly what you should do, but I can tell you when
you should begin making a change: right now.

    I’ve written about this topic a few times, and I think i thought things out before i got to that gravestone. I just sat back and imagined how much I’d hate a 9-5 job, and how i’d be miserable being told what to do and where to be at what time. So basically i started early doing my own thing online and avoiding the dreaded J-O-B. So far so good, but i’m not in the clear yet, but I try to keep my eye on the prize.

    I’m still a long way from being in the clear as well. I know it is a lot more fun to get up in the morning and do what you want to do rather than what you HAVE to do.

    When hating your job, try to think of the bigger picture. Look at it as a job and not your career. But by all means, learn something while at the job!

    Wow! I would definitely not want to live out a life with only that written on my headstone to show for it. If you truly hate what your doing then you should quite. I know it’s easier said than done but why would you want to waste your life doing something 8 hours a day (or more) that you truly hate? We’re not forced to keep working at that job, it’s not some prisoner slave camp making us stay. (just my thought)
