They say that the majority of the workforce in the world hates their jobs, or at least, does not enjoy what they do for a living. Imagine that; a person spends eight hours a day, five days a week, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year…working. And 30 plus years later, they retire, after having spent nearly their whole lives hating what they did.
What kind of life is that? Yes, maybe they come home to a loving family for a couple of hours a day and that is wonderful for them, but the percentage of time doing what they love pales in comparison to the percentage of time spent doing what they detest. That means that they were unhappy, perhaps miserable most of their working lives. That is tragedy in a nutshell—and it doesn’t have to be like that.
Yes, for the people already retired, your sail has passed to do anything against your pathetic decision to stay in a work place filled with non-rewarding activity. However, for those young people that still have time to do something about it, keep reading!
The most crucial thing to realize is that you are not happy where you are; admitting it is essential and one of the initial steps to take but more importantly, you must choose to do something about it. Easier said than done, right? Now, what to do?
How about doing something completely different? If you felt locked up as prisoner inside a stuffy, formal office building, try to do something fun, perhaps outdoors. Here’s an idea: invest in professional churro making equipment.
Who doesn’t like deep fried crispy, sugary sticks of goodness? Make sure you do the proper administration, i.e., setting up a business, writing a business plan, etc. Don’t skimp! Make sure you acquire the best churro ingredients, professional extruder, fryer…the whole shebang.
Gas powered? Electric powered? It’s up to you. To top it off, grab yourself a snazzy cart or food trailer or truck, brand it and kick your ass in gear. Once you have all the necessary licenses, machines, ingredients and transportation, all that’s remaining is your winning attitude, a little practice and voila! You’re in business.
Doing something like this beats working in a office, hands down. You’re out, you meet people, you earn a living and it’s something that shouldn’t generate much stress. So, how about it? Are you ready for something completely different?
