With millions of employees quitting their jobs during the Great Resignation, there are many opportunities for career professionals to get a raise or a promotion or find a better job. According to Statista, there were over 11.26 million open jobs in January of 2022.
Leaders are no longer limited to working at jobs that don’t fulfill them. You can find work that aligns with your life goals and provides financial security.
It’s vital to find fulfilling work because a majority of your time in life will be spent working in some form or another. When you spend large amounts of time working a job you dislike (or hate), those negative feelings, emotions, and frustrations bleed into other areas of your life.
Being an optimized career leader means you work to create harmony and balance in all parts of your life. When you’re working a job you dislike, you put yourself in a situation where you live two lives—the balance is off.
