There are few things as important as having a career that makes you happy when it comes to excelling in life and succeeding in your chosen field. So, for anyone who’s lost their enthusiasm for their current role, Love Your Job is a guide to making work more engaging, more productive and ultimately more enjoyable.
For many people, the initial excitement felt when starting a new job can get lost in the daily grind:
“When you lose pride in what you do, your health, your personal relationships, and your sense of self‐worth begin to diminish,” says author Kerry Hannon, an expert in career and personal finance trends.
But, according to Kerry, “You can fall back in love with your job again, even if you’ve been doing it for decades. This book is about finding ways to discover real joy in your job right now. The path to promotion is not always there, or at least not clear. Or you feel like you’re trapped in a dead‐end job. Quitting is generally not a good option, unless you already have a new position lined up elsewhere, or you already have the means to retire—in which case, lucky you.”
Love Your Job addresses the common reasons people feel discontented with their work and helps them overcome these issues by thinking more entrepreneurially, having ‘that talk’ with their manager, making a sideways move within their company or discovering value and meaning in their work.
Hannon taps into the routines, habits, and thought patterns that, over the years, may have turned a dream job into a drudge or, worse, a nightmare. The author’s message to the reader is clear: Make a plan and define what will make your own career path successful for you. It might be a more flexible work arrangement, a pay rise, or a challenging new assignment.
Love Your Job is about solutions. Kerry shows readers how to identify the little and big things that make work satisfying. She provides precise techniques that will lead to bigger and better things–regardless of age or career stage.
Why count down your working hours when it’s possible to reinvigorate and transform the daily doldrums into something gratifying, meaningful and productive?
