6 Ways to Like Your Job More

Not thrilled about your job? Here some ways to re-invent it.

 

Most people don’t love their jobs.  In fact, many studies show that only about 1 in 5 people really enjoy their jobs, about 1 in 5 actively dislike their jobs, and the rest are fairly neutral on the topic.

Unless you’re the kind of person who derives more satisfaction from complaining about something than you would from enjoying that thing (I know there are some people like that),  it seems as though it would be better to like work more.
