HOW OUR CAREERS MAKE OR BREAK US & WHAT TO DO WHEN WE STILL NEED OUR JOBS

  • We graduate with huge student loans
  • We take the first job that’s offered to us that relates to what we studied
  • We buy a house (and a mortgage), get married, have a family
  • We live the “dream” and yet we’re still completely unhappy with what we’ve built

BREAK US DOWN OR BUILD US UP

  • Energize us or leave us completely depleted;
  • Give us confidence or batter our self-esteem;
  • Make us feel like we matter in this world or create the illusion that we have nothing more to offer;
  • Help us reach our potential or stifle us
  • A day where you wake up with excitement and ready to tackle the day
  • Becoming lost in your work and enjoying every minute of it
  • Know that you’re using your talents to the best of your abilities and continually growing
  • Feeling and knowing you’re making an impact, big and small ones

IMPRISON US OR GIVE US FREEDOM

BE THE CAUSE OF DEATH OR BE A CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION

  1. Having just endured another day of a soul sucking job
  2. Letting another day go by

WE STILL NEED TO WORK!!!

  • Read a book
  • Watch a movie
  • Exercise
  • Make plans to hang out with friends
  • Join a class
