The word "work" sounds bad. It sounds absolutely misleading and can really be miserable if we are "working" for a wrong job or working with an incorrect attitude. Work is not necessarily a physical place. It's mostly inside our heads. It only works only if it does not play. If we can all find ways to "work" feel like a "game," we will all be happier with what we do and we will be much better in what we are doing. This is a simple philosophy, is not it? Who does not want to play all the time? Perhaps something of "Type A" out there that "LOVE TO WORK" will disagree with our claim, but many of them try either to escape something else in their lives … or maybe just maybe they really have what we're talking about about …. a way to work makes me feel like playing!
The game does not have to mean that what we are doing is easy. Indeed, most "game" activities that adults often enjoy in difficult challenges and some physical difficulties. We tend to enjoy difficult physical challenges like bikini, rock climbing, horticulture, building furniture and housing benefits. When we do this physical task in our time, on our own terms, we often think of them as a fun hobby — or play. Unfortunately, sometimes when we turn these interests into our organized daily work practices (landscaping, factory workers, workers), it seems fun to escape from our past leisure activities and become "work". Of course, difficult, mentally challenging activities can also be considered a fun hobby. Some love to solve puzzles, play games in the brain war, read, organize, paint, etc. But if we need to solve puzzles, find answers to difficult questions, read business documents, create an organization or create a complex design for "work", we tend to find it tiring – even humiliating. There is no physical difficulty in what we do that makes our hobbies work …. that's our MENTAL state of mind!
The first real thing we need to deal with to find happiness at work is to define what kind of work we could do to make our job more like a game. It will only seem to play if the majority of projects we do at work are things we want to enjoy even if we are not paid to do it. This description does not necessarily mean that our work should include watching TV while drinking beer or shopping for clothes and handbags to make it feel like a game. But if we can find a job that involves viewing and editing video content, brewing; or sampling of beer for sale to the public; or be a professional buyer, we might find something like we're playing & # 39; instead of & nbsp; win & # 39; — especially if we combine these fun aspects of our work with the right spiritual attitude. Indeed, if we are sufficient enough to find work that requires us to watch TV and drink beer every day, we probably do not find this work very soon. Finding the kind of work we should do is a very active self-assessment process far beyond this article, but the type of work we do is an important piece of the big career picture. There are other identified reasons why we can usually not associate work — even "fun work" — with a game.
There are usually 3 MENTAL realities that cause us to feel like we are working instead of playing:
1) Freedom ("commitment")
2) The consequences of what we do at work
3) People's Expectations
Lack of freedom involves having to do what we do not necessarily want to do – even if the project was usually fun if done under your own will. This can also be called a "commitment". Think of the time we are invited to formal parties. As the hour approaches, many of us do not feel like going. We must all be nervous and start to feel stuck. Indeed, you can go to the party like a chore — similar to work. We could fight with our friends and spouses as to whether we should go — until the last minute – especially if we are formally obliged to leave. But during the party, we usually have a good time and realize that the only reason we do not want to go was because we had committed ourselves to freeing our freedom to do what we would like to do at the moment in our spare time. Or think back in time when we were children: when we were made to do something, even if it was usually a fun act, we often cut off because it was not our idea. "I do not want to go out and play now — I want to be online and play video games". Even though we are not usually "forced" to go to work, most of us do not have a true "free" choice – we must work to live with our lifestyle, in most cases. We have undertaken to do something at some other time in exchange for payment methods and chosen lifestyle. Work is usually the second most important and life-threatening commitment we make in our lives — right after marriage. And most of us spend more time at work than we do at home "playing" with our spouses and families. At work, we can not handle only the actions we want to do when we want to do it. Our working days are generally structured, structured and structured so that we can accomplish tasks that sometimes have nothing to do with what we are interested in doing. Since we are committed to doing projects instead of money, insurance and other benefits, we need to do what we do not need to do and it is usually at some time schedule. This commitment to freedom of liberty is usually the main reason for our hostility towards "work" and can explain the difference between our spiritual beliefs between work and play.
The negative consequences of our work can also make us less aware of our experts. We know that if we do not do our right work, we could have real and public consequences for us and others involved. Knowledge of these potential consequences can create great pressure on us. If we fail to do what we do, we may lose our jobs, hurt our accusations or lost money both personally and for our business. In the case of medical treatment, public security, military and other dangerous work, life can actually be subject to the consequences of our work. These consequences can affect all aspects of our lives, the lives of our families, and the lives of others. This consequence of pressure, life threatening or not, can be very uncomfortable and often we want to be in a position to avoid it all. When we have to deal with the consequences at work, we usually have no way out – we find ourselves in our responsibility and worry about what can happen if we fail. Being trapped by potentially negative consequences in these circumstances may cause us to not like what we do at work. The consequences of the game are much less in most cases. For example, in most cases if we lose a game, it's just "L" instead of "W" on our "win / lose" file. Our property can be damaged, but it will only take a moment, then it will go away until our next attempt is to play.
Many of us also negatively affect expectations, real or perceived, which others may have in us. Actual expectations and expectations can cause unpleasant pressure and mental stress. We usually do not like this kind of mental discomfort and try to avoid it as much as possible. When this inconvenience stems from work, many of us want to avoid going to work and fearing the thought of what we need to do in the office. In addition, when we are not quite sure what we do at work where expectations are at the highest level, the weight is heavy and can cause us to be very worried about our career. For example, we often have a responsibility to deliver projects on time and under budget. Our customers, colleagues and officers usually expect professional, detailed and accurate tasks delivered on time and within the specified budget. Even if we have completed hundreds of similar projects and know how to do it professionally, some of us tend to dwell on the possibility of not fulfilling the expectations of others. This possibility of failure in the eyes of others emphasizes many of us outside of the comfort area and at the request we could avoid it. On the other hand, when our thinking is in a "game" mode, we sometimes enjoy the challenges that relate to the expectations of others. For example, when we have dinner and are preparing a complicated meal for our six year-old guests, we are often happy to be in the kitchen and excited about our culinary creations and how they are received by our guests – especially if we have release this dialog before. There is always a possibility that the dinner could be a perfect failure, but it does not work anyway (unless we are forced to dinner in the first place – in the case of the first paragraph on "Lack of Liberty" and " commitment ").
It is clear from this analysis that the way we respond to our work can either cause us to fear or enjoy it – even if it sounds like a game. Luckily, we have the opportunity to consider what can help us relieve many unpleasant emotions that tend to be related to work and make it feel more like "playing."
We must understand losing our freedom is one reason to get compensation for our work. We are paid to give up our free time. There are very few ways around this unless we can find a career that has no plan of claim and happens to align our own interests. Even people who seem to have the most advanced jobs are giving up much freedom to get compensation for their work. Anyone who works – either for fun or money – has customers, customers or fans who demand something in exchange for their protection. Donald Trump has his tenants and financiers to serve and satisfy, along with the media who watch all the time. Trump claims that he works all the time and seems to have learned to enjoy work as he is playing but not all his time is "free time". Tiger Woods must avoid relaxing days at home for intolerable exercises and tournaments that take him from his family to win tournaments and please him fans and supporters. In many of us, Tiger looks like "playing" and even though he probably uses more than many of us, we would probably disagree with the term "game" for what he does. We can all control how long the program's freedom is, which we are prepared to give up and sort of work we participate in as long as we can handle the transactions. If we are pleased with how much our compromise we can negotiate during our working hours and projects, we will surely be happier in our work because our freedom has increased, although we can not be completely free all the time.
Managing the consequences of our work is a very difficult task. There are consequences in all of our operations, but if we realize that we can manage the risks and consequences of the work with thorough capabilities, reduce the possibility of failure, reduce inconvenience caused by the work. Another key to limiting anger because of consequences is learning to respond positively to negative consequences. First, we should not place ourselves in places where the consequences of our work create potentially catastrophic effects in our lives – beyond what we are able to maintain. Limit your risk to tolerable levels and be prepared to fail at potential levels of your risk. As your progress grows, your ability increases to sustain losses. At the same time, be realistic about the severity of consequences. It's not likely that if your intentions are good, losing your job is not necessarily the end of the world, as long as you can find one that will not have to change your lifestyle beyond your tolerance. Most of us will be able to find other companies to work for and make similar benefits. Understanding risk involves usually some kind of reward to be successful and make sure that the company's contracts. Focus on positive consequences like making more money for your business and yourself; or focus on your promotion and increase the reputation of your success. Do not dwell on negative consequences, but be aware of them. They are part of all we do. This is a rudimentary yin and yang.
We can also manage ourselves under the pressure of others' expectations. If we can train ourselves to judge the outcome of our work with our own standards while playing real or perceiving others' expectations, much of our concerns can be tamed and allow us to truly enjoy what we do instead of fearing it. There are many ways to overcome others' expectations. While it's hard to do, focus on doing your job in a way that meets your own personal requirements. Do not focus on others' expectations, focus on yourself. If your expectations are reasonable, you will likely be successful without worrying about your customers, customers, bosses or partners expectations. Most expectations of anguish are in your own mind and you may find that your own expectations are already higher than others. Focusing on your own expectations, we will significantly relieve your employees' anxiety and strengthen you to increase your own expectations in a fair way, increase your ability and improve the quality of your business.
By combining all of the above reasons that many of us tend to dislike certain jobs leads us to conclude that we have the potential in our current position as shown above. But there is also another possibility; Eliminate all these worries about working life by working yourself in a process that really does not affect other people: Be "Lone Eagle". By working for yourself as "one eagle" you are eliminating coworkers and "bosses" from your workplace. You are also able to create your own plan to some extent (depending on what you choose to do). Even though most everyone who earns money is in the mercy of their customers and customers, if we independently produce something that is for sale and accepts a spiritual attitude to take it or take it off, we're isolating ourselves from even worried of consumers, as long as the product we are producing is of interest to people and it is of fair quality. This attitude can lead to lower consumer awareness of what we are selling, but if we can maintain a satisfactory lifestyle from slightly lower sales due to our "attitude to take it or go", it will eliminate the main actions of dissatisfaction with the job.
Most products developed by one fireplace are of a special "niche". Some possible "Lone-Eagle" Occupations that reduce concerns about lack of freedom, consequences of work and expectations of others are:
2) Fine Artist
9) Software Developer
10) Photographer / Video Player
6) Automated Sales Representative
Finding what we love to do and develop a changed approach to how we must deal with the reality of our work is the key to finding happiness at work. When we take this reality and choose to measure changes in our career in a conscious effort to improve our working hours, our work will feel more like a game and our overall life will be much more adequate and happy.
