Do you love your job? Most of us spend a quarter to a third of our life at work, so it seems like it should be something we at least don't hate. Bonus if you can say you enjoy it. You're incredibly lucky if you can say you love your job.
If you love your job, it shows in your work. We've all meet that person that just has so much passion for what they do. It's a joy to work with them or for them to help you. Of course, on the flip side, if the employee hates their job that comes out too.
If you don't love your job (or at least enjoy it) you aren't doing yourself any favors. You are doing it 40 to 60 hours a week. You are probably thinking about work more than that. That's a huge part of your life to not enjoy it.
Do you dread Monday's? Are you working for the weekend? You need to make changes at work to make it better or it's time to move on…
