With unemployment at 7.8%, most of TJMS listeners have jobs, but that doesn’t mean they’re happy with them. A recent study by UC, Berkley found that only 48% of participants said they were “very satisfied” with their work. That said, that same study also found that people WANT to work. When asked if they had enough money to live comfortably for the rest of their lives, would they work or stop working, over 70% said they would continue working. The takeaway is that people get a lot of satisfaction from their jobs, even if they don’t love them, but you might as well love your work if you’re going to dedicate so much of your life to it.
