Do you dread going into work? If you’re one of the many people who finds themselves performing a job you don’t particularly enjoy then Richard Branson has some words of advice for you, after all it’s not always easy getting to do what you love.
“The idea of working in a cubicle strikes fear in my heart, and always has. Luckily, I was so unsuited to schoolwork that it was obvious from an early age that I would never be a paper-pusher – it wouldn’t have been possible even if I had wanted to!
“So many people get trapped in jobs they don’t care about, or even dislike. That’s just wrong. We should feel excited about getting up and going to work every day; we should be able to pursue our passions. I don’t think that’s too much to ask. That said, I know that doing what you love isn’t always easy – sometimes you have to take a job you don’t like in order to pay the bills. Don’t let work that makes you unhappy define you or wear you down. If you can’t make your passion pay right now, the most important thing you can do is nurture your ideas and goals and begin to think about how you can make time for them.”
