Mobile What proportion of the country do you think enjoy going to work...

Only ask as its Monday morning and I really cant be bothered at the moment..

Over the past few weeks my mind is constantly thinking about how much I cant wait for retirement which is a bit of a problem as Ive got a mortgage to pay and Im only 46 😊

Problem is Im at the stage of my career that I cant really afford to take a pay cut that would inevitably be needed should I want to change career.

Anyway mini moan over and back to work I go.

I'm not sure many would say they enjoy the day to day routine of going to work, especially on a miserable and grey Monday morning. I think a larger percentage would say they tolerate their job!

I work from home on a Monday and it's a nice way to ease into the week. Do I enjoy my job? I've come to the realisation that whilst I don't bounce out of bed like Tigger every morning, I do like my current job more than any other job I've done and I get paid alright (for what I do), work/life balance is fine and I get job satisfaction from it.

What would you do if you could change career? Would you actually enjoy that if you were doing it every day?

Whatever the percentage is of people who enjoy going to work I'm not in it.
If I could afford it I'd never go back and when I leave whether it's for another job or retirement I'll do my best to never set foot in the place again.

I LOVE my job, it's taken me 2 1/2 years to find the right role after going back into nursing in 2016, whilst I've enjoyed the other roles, I've finally found the one that really insprires me.

It's a great place to be.

Sorry you're struggling, I was right with you in my last post, where I was recruited with lies basically then used as a pair of hands and kept from my specialist role, I hated it and begrudged being there, if it wasn't for my holiday passion, I'd have left a lot sooner than I did!

To be honest, if I did go down another, legitimate, career route then Id probably feel the same. (Legitimate in that ill never get the dream job of being a pilot 😊 ).

I work from home too, one day in the office per week which happens to be today which may have something to do with my mood 😊.

I also am paid well and have a good work life balance. Its just the realisation that Ill still be doing this in 15 years plus time that is getting me down.

Guess the grass isnt always greener on the other side..

I have two jobs - one I like and is the best job I have had , the second one is not so good.I have to leave for it in minute and really dont want to go! Trying to decide if going and not really liking it is better than having less money.

I mostly love my job, although there are some internal goings on which are unsettling me and definitely impacting on my enjoyment of the job. But even on the best of days, I don't bounce out of bed.

It is hard when you get used to a certain standard of living, and making changes will impact on that. I took the leap a few years ago, leading to a few years of not great money, but now I earn more. So change does not have to mean a long term drop in your standard of living.
