ABC's of Loving Your Job
By Dr. John C. Maxwell

People who want to retire so they can sit under a coconut tree watching the grass grow baffle me. We were created for meaningful work, and one of life's greatest pleasures is the satisfaction of a job well done.

And yet, there are millions of people who don't like their job. There are over 600,000 ways to make a living in this country, yet job satisfaction surveys tell us that more than 50 percent of the working population claim to dislike their job. Something's wrong with this picture!

I've discovered that loving the job you have, or finding a job you can love, is dependent on three things. I call these the ABC's of Loving Your Job.

Associates - Work with people you enjoy.

Belief - Trust that your work is worthwhile and making a vital difference.

Challenge - Find a job big enough to keep you growing for the rest of your life.

Finding joy in your work, or evaluating a lack of joy, can be found by considering associates, beliefs, and challenges.
