Cai Kangyong reveals the truth of the workplace : all the work, in fact, you will not like
It's the annual "Golden Three Silver Four" recruitment season. Many people in the workplace begin to move after the New Year and plan to change jobs.
Especially these days, countless fans and friends came to me and asked me, should I quit?
After chatting with these people in the workplace, I found that many people leave because they don't like their current job.
When I was young, I thought the same thing. I always felt that when I did a job, I had to like it enough to be more motivated to continue doing it.
But then I realized that measuring work with "like it or not" is actually unreliable.
I once interviewed a young guy who graduated about four years ago. He changed jobs six times in four years. He only stayed in the previous company for about two months.
I asked him why he left, and the guy sincerely told me:
"I don't like my last job. I find it very boring."
I looked through his resume carefully, only to find that there were no links between the six jobs, from restaurant waiters to copywriting to sales.
"I don't know what I like to do, so I want to try more."
I understand how he doesn't know what he likes to do, but I must also take a responsible attitude to the company and keep him out.
First of all, any company is unwilling to leave a person who frequently changes jobs;
Secondly, I personally think that the stupidest way in the workplace is to measure work by likes or dislikes.
I can understand what I like when I just graduate.
But it ’s been four years since you graduated. When your peers are in the middle of the industry, you are still floating on the bottom, and it ’s too unreliable to find a job you like.
If you ca n’t find what you like, do you want to keep jumping?
This guy doesn't know what he likes.
Some people know what they like, but they do n’t like it when they are doing it.
My friend Wu Yue always likes to write articles. After switching from the previous company, I found a job as a public account editor.
At the beginning, she was full of enthusiasm, but before one month, she told me that she didn't want to do it.
I asked it carefully, but it was too troublesome. At the beginning, I was inspired a lot, but later my knowledge reserve decreased.
Sometimes an article couldn't be written in a day. In addition, she also had to consider typesetting, graphic matching, and so on. Mass output and trivial details made Wu Yue burned.
Now she doesn't seem to like the job so much.
When Wu Yue came to me, I only said one thing to her : In fact, you won't like all the work.
why would you say so?
Because once anything is repeated and evaluated, you will not like it.
"Interest is the best teacher". This phrase often leads us to misunderstand that if you like it, you can do it well, but it is not.
She likes to write articles, but articles need to be shown to users. Reading volume and user experience will affect topic selection, style, and so on.
In the past, I wrote my own articles to vent my emotions. I would write if I was inspired.
But now that I am constrained and imprisoned, I have to find the inspiration to write even if I have no inspiration. How can I continue to like it?
Many people like a profession, not necessarily a real one, but more because they don't understand it.
Cai Kangyong once said something like this:
It is difficult for people to know whether they like or dislike.
Your cognition needs a process, so I think it is dangerous for 90% of people to choose a job with likes or dislikes.
Because I'm afraid, what you think you like, after you do it, you will find that you don't like it that much.
In fact, finding a job is the same as finding a boyfriend.
At the beginning, you have a good feeling for a man and have a fond feeling for love, maybe just because of the other person and a sentence, an action, think he is the best person in the world, is your favorite person.
After being with the other party for a long time, I found out that he also has a lot of things that you don't like.
For example, you do n’t like cleanliness, such as nagging. At this time, you will have a serious feeling of falling.
You just started to like him, only predicting your happiness and happiness, but this kind of like will not let you predict in advance the setbacks and challenges you will encounter in the process of being with him .
You can't be able to marry a person and have children for a lifetime by relying on the hormones you first met. There is not so much love in the world for no reason.
Love between white heads and old age requires your commitment.
You must invest patience, endure his shortcomings, invest time, manage your feelings, and the happiness that love brings to you will make you willing to invest.
It's the same at work. "Like" is just an initial feeling.
Various problems and challenges encountered in your work will gradually make you like it less and less.
And doing a job for a long time requires exactly your investment. You need to calm down to deal with problems and analyze the pros and cons.
What work brings to you, whether it is the thrill of earning money, the sense of achievement in solving problems, or the sense of honor brought by fame, will make you truly fall in love with it.
Conversely, if your sense of accomplishment in the job is far from being able to offset your frustration, your favorite may become dislike, and your favorite may become dislike.
The more involved you are, the more you like it, the more you like it, the more you are engaged.
This is a forward cycle, but the first step in starting this cycle is to invest unconditionally, rather than eager to get results before you have invested much.
Most of life is loved because of persistence, not because of love.
Earlier this year, Huang Bo became the first film actor to surpass 10 billion in box office.
But at the beginning, Huang Bo didn't like acting, but singing.
He said that when he was the craziest, he was practicing singing and dancing all day. As long as it is a holiday, he can stay in the house for a day without coming out, just like it.
Later I wanted to sign a contract with a good record company, but no one wanted to hold him.
In the end, he had no choice but to give up and returned to Qingdao to set up a factory. After many twists and turns, he did not achieve much.
By chance, he ran to perform. Although the acting didn't sing to make him like it so much, he still devoted himself.
The more you act, the more you discover, the performance brings you a sense of excitement and satisfaction.
At this time, he slowly felt that acting was one of his favorite things, as if he was competent and not bad at it.
Japanese industrialist Kazuo Inamori said in his book "The Dry Law":
To live a fulfilling life, there are only two options.
One is "do what you like" and the other is "make you like work".
The odds of being able to come across a job you like are probably less than a few thousandths or ten thousandths.
Rather than looking for a job you like, you should like the job you already have and start here.
Destiny actually loves to joke with us. Sometimes what you like to do may not be good, but when you insist on doing one thing, you will find yourself slowly falling in love with it.
Work is the same as love. It is easy to be tempted, but it is difficult to persevere, but every choice in life will be your irrevocable option in the future.
No one can decide what your life looks like, except yourself.
