Work should be fulfilling. If it’s not, try something else. If something else isn’t practical, work the unfulfilling job while striving for that something else. That is a prescription for success, however long-term that result may take. Allow me to demonstrate with an example. Today, while riding in the elevator, I overheard the following conversation:
1st woman: This the last place I’m working at.
2nd woman: How many years do you have left?
1st woman: I got five years left.
If I ever get to the point where I treat my job that way, punch me in the nose until I bleed. Make the blood obstruct my speech.
