My job, my burden?

7개월 전


Our World has changed, likewise the career paths we once held as 'noble' and ideal. We are not at a time where competition is so fierce we'd trade an arm for an opportunity at a very successful company.

Ironically, the terms happiness and job satisfaction have never been used more than our current era in the history of humankind. A lot of emphasis is placed on ensuring we're happy at our workplaces and derive satisfaction from our jobs.

But satisfaction doesn't pay the bills. Apart from a lucky few who got to live our their dream professions, the vast majority of us are stuck in the perpetual rat-race to a never ending finish.

That probably explains why we all take huge gambles to attain financial freedom (I dare say even crypto is a gamble). The routine of doing something unsatisfactory daily can be a real pain.

I wonder how the future of job satisfaction would be with automation taking over. Perhaps the new jobs created may give a lot more space for creativity and self expression, or perhaps we would follow the old ways... Faking our unbridled love for unsatisfactory jobs till begin to like them.

The routine of doing something unsatisfactory daily can be a real pain.
