“I hate this job!” You hear this often from people who are not satisfied with the job they hold. But they can’t take this thing called a “job” away from them because it brings food to the table, buys them clothes and shoes, buys medicine to keep them healthy, and pays for almost everything they need on a day-to-day basis. Technically, it’s ironic that something like a “job” would be hated by so many people when it can bring them many benefits.
Equating this with the way you may think about your job, if you put “love” instead of “hate” to your job, work becomes easier for you. This will make you more productive. The company will profit more. As a result, they will pay you more. Then, everybody is happy.
If you are the employer, you can also do many positive changes that will benefit your employees. In the end, you will be the biggest beneficiary of this change.
Employers can start by putting up motivational slogans around the walls of the workplace. These slogans may promote unity and harmony between management and staff where everyone will benefit out of it. These slogans may suggest positive attitudes that will form part of their work habits. There is power in words. These words will guide your staff to change in positive ways. It would be wise to turn these words into action. In time, the “I hate this job” chant becomes “I love this job”. This improvement in work attitude will be reflected in less turnover of employees. As an employer, you will find less people leaving the company and more employees that are satisfied with their job.
Visitors to your company will be impressed with the slogans you place on the walls of your work place. So make them as meaningful as possible.
Employees must make a change in the way you think about your job. It cannot be denied that hating or loving a job has a lot to do with the way you treat it.
There are many instances wherein an employee does not see the good side of his job until he has left or lost it. You need not wake up one morning to this kind of scenario. To avoid this, let the good side of keeping your job pervade your thoughts.
Here’s another formula to make you love your job. Treat your job as though you are doing voluntary work. Think of your job as though you are helping the needy without expecting anything in return. You will be astonished with the result it will bring to your heart, health, and pocket. Treating your job as a volunteer work makes you work wholeheartedly, without any resistance.
It’s either you keep your job or you don’t. Hating it is not an option. But either way, remember to never quit your present job unless you have another job in hand.
