I really feel it’s important that people strive to find employment and careers that speak to their souls because when you spend the better part of your life in the office, it can be an absolute drain on your entire mental and physical systems — especially when you’re doing something you have no passion for (trust me, I’ve been there). With that being said, I’m sharing a wonderful article by Tony Schwartz and Christine Porath posted on NY times website last month about why working SUCKS. And let’s be honest — working can suck, especially if there’s nothing there to engage or challenge you.
