Summary

The question for today is, “How you get yourself to love a job you hate but that pays well.”

I think that's a great question and my answer is not to be the one that you want because I don't think it's possible. You see, most people can adjust their thinking for certain period of time but they can't do it permanently so, eventually, what happens it leaks out. You can trick yourself for a while but, ultimately, you don't like the work, you don't like the environment, and the money is not good enough to bribe you into being in love with the job.

What happens is you learn to tolerate it and, like the death by a thousand cuts, eventually, it starts to come through.

All that's happening is you are tolerating the work; you don't really love it.

So I would simply say there are going to be other places and other environments that will pay you well for which you might like the work more. Why put up with something? New

I can talk with you about the history of how it may have occurred for you.

For most people, as I've said many times, what usually happens is when someone is brought to school on their first day and they are sat down at their desk and are told him be nice, we will come back and get you later. You were very very young but, eventually, we start learning that the message of school is “Shut up. Do what you told. Regurgitate a bunch of stuff or else!” Or else you will get into a good university.

Eventually, you get into that university and you are basically told the same thing and the threat is, “Or you will get a good job.”

Now you have a good job and are waking up to the fact that you don’t like this work and thus you gotta find work that you really like that and will pay you what you are worth.

So you can learn to tolerate things but that's not going to help you love a job. That's going to teach you to put up with it for as long as possible until eventually you say, “ I can't do this anymore.”
