How many times do you look at the clock hoping that time will pass quickly?
You’re at the office, all this paperwork to do has made your brain boil, it’s Tuesday afternoon for those who never come, you are bored and the eye of escape in the lower right corner: it is 3 p.m.
You can’t wait until 6 p.m. to escape from your home or anywhere else.
You want time to pass quicklyalthough it is the greatest value you have.
The problem is that for most people this doesn’t happen on a random Tuesday throughout the year, it’s a daily occurrence.
According to a study commissioned by Espresso Communication for Sodexo around 7 out of 10 Italians are unhappy with their jobs, a very high number if you stop and think.
Tens of thousands of people who daily hope that time passes quickly so that they can free themselves from these invisible chains that pin them down to do something they don’t like.
Sure – you say – how do you constantly do what you want? It’s a bit of a dystopian vision, one might think.
A little yes, but a little desert crosses it between “do something everyday that bores us” And “do this from time to time“, Do you agree?
The truth is that in modern society, work is perceived as a succession of actions which are all the same and which are perpetuated indefinitely, for weeks, months and years, until retirement.
In this time frame, this represents the period of our life when we have the most energythis routine is sporadically interrupted by a few weeks of vacation each year and weekends, which we usually spend doing the same things over and over again.
The rest of the time we work, and if we are passionate about the tasks, we don’t want the time to pass quickly, but if not, we always end up looking at the clock hoping that the time will come where we are free to do whatever we want.
So what’s the secret? – you will ask -.
There is no secret.
It is only the ability to accomplish the tasks that allows us to have bread on the table as boring as possiblealways being honest with ourselves, to avoid convincing ourselves that it’s not so bad to do those things that we actually hate about ourselves.
The real question is: Do you really love what you do or are you just doing it right?
