That work can sometimes be tedious is an understatement. According to the Washington Post only 13% of people actually like going to work. This is a global tragedy. That this is even a possibility is a tragedy. How come that only so few can actually enjoy and be passionate about what they do? This means that you are going in to the office today, you will need to do some legit recon to find a select few who actually like being there.
Well, we can keep reasoning and say “we do not go to work for work itself, but for its benefits”. Even though if this was true, which it isn’t, how much money would you require if the condition was not to enjoy it? I sound like a madman, but consider for a second that according to Skift, 41% of Americans did not take a single vacation day during 2015. A single day. This means that on top of the 87% who do not like going to work, only a little more than half were able to run away to something they actually enjoyed for a couple of days throughout the year.
