Do you go through the Monday morning blues? I sure get them every now and then. I have always wanted a dedicated holiday for sincere souls that work hard throughout the year. Thankfully, we do have such a day–it’s called the May Day and is celebrated on May 1st, every year. Interestingly, this time around, May 1st falls on a Monday. The thought of staying at home, without rushing off to work, makes me immensely happy.
Logically speaking, work isn’t that unpleasant. After all, it is just a bunch of duties to be carried out. We head to an office or sit at home and get a set of tasks done. In return, we get paid at the end of the month. It certainly is a fair deal. So, why do we dread going to work? Three of the Most Common Reasons People Quit their Jobs, a study conducted by Fortune, states bosses as the number one reason, followed by poor work-life balance. The third reason is when one is a misfit for the job.
The harsh truth is that a good majority of us are clueless about what we want to do in life. Most of us are unaware of our true calling.
