Hate Your Job?

"Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called everybody and they meet at the bar."
*Drew Carey
**Click ">" on Playlist #1 "Working Nine To Five".
I can't help but laugh at this quote. We all hate our job from time-to-time. Even the best of jobs go through transitional changes. Through all of the changes our companies are going through, it brings to mind a quote I remember from a business class in college. It was an HR course (I was thinking of going into business at the time, specifically working in HR).
"Every change is loss and every loss must be mourned."
It doesn't matter if the change is a terrific idea. People must get through missing what they know and are familiar with before they will embrace the new idea. We are all comfortable in our own little box. When the box gets new parameters, we freak out for awhile. Not to worry, things will work out.
Pull up your big girl (boy) pants and find a way to enjoy your job today.
