It is a usual Monday morning. The clock strikes seven. Your alarm clock acts like the hostel’s old matron who just cannot see you sleep peacefully. Like most of the working population, you want to strangle that tiny little thing to death. You wake up and stare at the wall. You contemplate if you really need the job. This is a common morning scenario when you do not like your job. But, what happens when you have a job that you are passionate about? Let us see:
1) You do not need the snooze button
Waking up early is a task. For young adults who love to party after work, it gets even harder. But if you have a job that you are passionate about, you happily turn into an early bird. You cannot wait to get started on the day. Just like schooldays, when you would not sleep the night before for fear of missing the picnic! When the alarm goes off, you get going.
2) Goodbye Monday morning blues
For people who are passionate about their work, the Monday morning blues is an alien concept. You long to get back to work on a Monday morning. You tend to be as excited to go to work as one would be while going on the last day of the week. That is the magic of embracing your passion.
3) Overtime? Bring it on!
You fail to understand why your friends whine about putting in extra hours at work. You are almost unaffected by the clock hands. You do not mind working over the weekends either. In fact, you can happily plan your weekend around your work.
4) You have a clear career goal
Building a career is never easy. Yet, there are people who do it, for money or for an intangible, better future. But you do not have to worry much. You know what you want to do in life; you have a clear goal. There is no two ways about it. You invest all your time and effort in achieving this goal.
5) Honing skills
If you are passionate about your job, you find all the ways possible to grow and become better. So, there’s a good chance you are constantly on the lookout for new skills and knowledge. No one has to tell you to take new courses or learn new concepts. You are quite self-motivated in this case.
You spend around nine hours at work every day. To be productive, it is important that you enjoy what you do in those hours. This becomes possible when your passion becomes your job.
