We Rise By Lifting Others ~Robert Ingersoll

Each day I am miserable and feel I am not being challenged. I work from home and I am isolated. I want to work in the music business. Any career I have had I have been told I look unhappy and that is because I am. ~Worker Living in ARIZONA Today, if you know the business that you want to work in then start moving towards that business. Do one thing today towards working in that business or industry.  If you don’t know the business or industry that you want to work in and you know of somebody else who is trying…

Another Work Monday On Your Current Job…Two Down…50 More To Go…

I’ve survived in an incredibly difficult and low paying job that’s affecting my health, has left me filled with rage and depression for the past two years, and shows every sign of getting worse. The people I work for have proven to be distrust-worthy on more than one occasion. They constantly employ bad business ethics and bully anyone who stands up to them. For instance: it is routine to deny minimum wage workers legal overtime pay for many overtime hours worked on a WEEKLY BASIS. I am in a management position, and have tried to curtail these practices with every…

There IS Hope And A Way Will Come

I don’t have faith in the leadership at my company. We are understaffed, people are literally working 70 hours a week. It is taking up to three months to replace open positions. I am not working that much because I don’t want anyone to expect me to do that on a regular basis. I am getting behind because I am not working that much. I am in a new position and have not had adequate training and everyone is so busy, no one is really available to provide good help and guidance. I am exhausted and stressed out when I…

A College Degree Is Very Important, If You Don’t Have One…But It’s No Guarantee for Workplace Fit or Happiness.

I’m not in my field that I have seven years of education and two degrees for. I haven’t progressed professionally in four years for the lack of understanding what I actually do. I have been to three therapists for depression dealing with my current lifestyle and this job. ~Worker Living in Arizona Back to the myth that “schooling” is the key that opens all doors. It’s not and we know that.  We have too many examples of folks who made it big without even finishing high school.  Then on the other hand we have folks that have several degrees and…

When Is The Last Time You Felt “Beautiful” About A Career Decision?

The scheduling manager at the organization I work for has decided to give me shifts that are the death knell for any associate–shifts that she has stated she cannot work because she has a family. I have always made it clear that I am only available for part time work because I have family obligations and health concerns that make part time hours a must. However, there has been one reason after another that this manager has needed me to not only work double the hours I signed on for, but also mainly night hours, heavy weekend loads, and shifts…

Life is Too Short to Do Work That’s Not Real and Doesn’t Matter

OCTOBER In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity.  ~ Albert Einstein The job is a joke. It pays good money but the work is meaningless. I visit schools that don’t want me there and some actively encourage me NOT to come so much so that at times I don’t go and say I did — which makes me feel terrible about myself. Other places let me come and give me work, but the work is minimal – and for the most part has no or only short term outcomes. I post school visit notes on a website that is named for…

Feeling Good About What We Do

You are reading from the book  “Just Quit” & Live  Q: Why do you want to quit your job EVEN if you don’t have another job lined-up? It makes me feel really depressed because I feel like I’m helping screw people out of money. I also do not like any one I work with and feel that I can do a lot better in life than working here. It’s not where I want to be and not a field I would want to advance in. ~Worker Living in ARIZONA   Today’s Meditation: Sometimes we look up and realize that we…
