Is Your Work Really Hard?

Sandro: “I no longer like my job.”

Leonardo: “Why? What’s wrong with you? Or with it?”

Sandro: “It has become harder than ever. I no longer feel myself at ease.”

Leonardo:” Is it really hard work?”

When your job becomes more difficult than you can handle, you need to find an answer to this question:

‘Have you done something to make it easier?’

A difficult job means one or all of the following:

  • Time is not enough to perform all the tasks,
  • It requires a lot of energy,
  • You lack creativity,
  • A chronic disease may put your health at risk while performing it,
  • That job requires more than one person to do,
  • You waste energy outside work,
  • And, especially, you lack the skills that make it easier.

Do not think that your peers in other departments:

  • Have easier jobs,
  • Have more free time than you do,
  • Are happier with their jobs than you are,
  • Are better paid than you are,
  • Their bosses give them less work.

Theirs maybe harder, but they just do not have time to complain. They may also be better prepared for it. YES! I like the question you raise:

How to be better prepared for your job?

In order to:

You need to:

  • See how your peers perform their jobs,
  • Understand that evolution is unavoidable,
  • Meet people doing the same job in other companies, and countries,
  • Take Excel and software courses,
  • Ask your company to purchase you a software license for your tasks,
  • Learn the techniques & technology used in your company & industry,
  • Ask for more training.

A lot of people believe that the work they do is hard, while the truth is not that. You need to pay closer attention to the above, to get a better idea about how your relationship with work in general is.

  1. I want to apply for some vac schemes with law firms and was wondering whether anyone knows the deadline for Hughmans graduate vacation schemes? Some grad students on the social book told me I may find some lawyers here. Cheers
