Love the Job You’re With

It is sobering to think how many people not only don’t love the job they have, but actively hate their jobs. According to Gallup and others, more than half the workforce is not engaged, with the bottom 20% being actively disengaged. It is amazing that any work gets done at all by the remaining one-third.

According to Forbes magazine (Sept. 2011) the 10 happiest jobs are:

  1. Clergy
  2. Firefighters
  3. Physical Therapists
  4. Authors
  5. Special Education Teachers
  6. Teachers
  7. Artists
  8. Psychologists
  9. Financial Services Sales Agents
  10. Operating Engineers

Not a single banker, lawyer, manager, accountant, web developer or customer service rep in the lot. No chefs, retailers, salespeople, truckers, physicians, university administrators, or musicians.
