We Should Choose Careers That Fulfill Us, Not Just Live for the Weekends

      As work consumes a vast ocean of our hours, let us not sail it with mere duty but navigate with joy, turning every wave and breeze into a celebration of life's voyage.
What if we woke up every morning feeling excited for the day to start?
What if "Thank God It's Friday" became "Thank God It's Monday"?


The average person will spend one-third of their life at work. That's approximately 90,000 hours over a lifetime. Yet, according to a Gallup poll, 85% of people worldwide hate their jobs. When we spend such a substantial portion of our lives working, shouldn't those hours be engaging, enjoyable, and meaningful? The psychological impact of spending day after day in a job that we don't love is too significant to ignore.


Many of us were taught by our parents, teachers, mentors, and cultural undertones of our society that "We should pick a high-paying job, and use our free time to do what we love." Many of us then aim for college degrees that come with a hefty price tag, in order to get a job that requires a brand-name college degree, in order to make a stable income, in order to save up for retirement and the weekends.


So we spend most of our lives sitting in our chairs, staring at a computer. And going back home at the end of a long day, wishing we had more time to relax. And taking deep sighs at night before we fall asleep, dreading the next morning. We end up developing mental health disorders and physical diseases that reflect our unhappy lifestyles. We long to spend our days traveling, telling ourselves that "those day will come eventually..."


And yet, many elderly individuals reflecting on their lives often express regrets such as wishing they had traveled more, spent more quality time with loved ones, and devoted more time to self-discovery so that they could have devoted time to activities that felt more fulfilling.


The values of following our hearts, trusting in the abundance that our hearts lead us to, and the financial stability that can come from pursuing our passions have been collectively demoted to "unrealistic dreaming." 
"Only the talented, lucky few can make it out alive doing what they love."


How different our lives would be if we believed in ourselves enough to pursue what we wanted to do. 


The individuals featured on our platform are here to show you that it is possible to feel highly fulfilled at work. No more waiting until the weekend to have fun. Instead, you'll be waiting to get to work again because of the joy that it can bring you those you work with.
