Fall in Love with Your Job Because Paychecks are Nice — 17 Comments

  1. I like that idea of not having your name associated with something crappy so you must put forth your best efforts.

  2. I do not always love going to work. I have had 2 horrible jobs and I did move on. I try to remind myself that my current job is not horrible because I know what horrible is. I also try to do my best at work. Not so much for the sake of the job but because I don’t want my name associated with anything crappy.

  3. I love the fact that I have a job! Thanks for the reminder to ACT like it 🙂

  4. Your job now is harder and more important! You still get a paycheck, it is just different currency. So you still have to be grateful for your work!

  5. My kids are my job (and blogging and sewing are secondary) so I’m pretty much set, but boy could I have used this seven years ago! Great wake up call for all of us!

  6. I am glad your “real” job is giving you satisfaction and that you have techniques to make things well with your “other” job!

  7. Christine you had the right attitude. If you cannot fake it and you cannot stand it move! I am glad you were able to find happiness instead of staying in a hostile environment! You learned a good lesson.

  8. Now that blogging and writing is my “real” job, I have no problems loving it! Ha! Seriously, I wake up every morning excited to get started. And when it comes to my military obligations, I tend to do the same, even though the job can be a pain sometimes. I get to do some very fun things as my “jobs” and get paid for it. A true blessing, indeed.

  9. When I was working in a very hostile environment, it became almost impossible to do any of these things. So I did exactly what you said and I left. I realized that it was a problem that I had nothing nice to say, feel or think at that particular time. But I am still grateful to this day that I got the experience there that I did.

  10. Thank you for stopping by. I am glad you liked the tips. I like your idea of a smile being the best accessory. I think I will try to wear mine more often.

  11. Janeane, those 5 tips are so simple, thank you for the reminder – sometimes we forget our manners and treat our job like the enemy.

    Something as basic as dressing up for work can change your attitude & change Others attitude towards you. It’s not the outfit they are admiring, it’s the confidence you exude from ‘looking good is feeling good’.

    The past few weeks I’ve been working on avoiding the negative vibes in the office – I won’t let them in my door and I’m much more relaxed, which actually allows me to SMILE! Which as we all know is the best accessory one can wear.

    Cheers & thanks for this pep talk!

  12. Let me know how that works out for you. I think that over time, our co-workers will act better towards us if we make them think they are valued and appreciated.

  13. Well I don’t do much for my coworkers, I think I will in the next week. Working where I am was definitely as blessing in disguise && my coworkers are really appreciated so I will show them that they are!

How do these ideas work in your world?
