Unhappy at Work? A Change is Coming

By Gary Mosher

We all can't be astronauts, professional athletes, dolphin trainers or test pilots -- some of us have to work for a living. I'm not implying that the people in those professions don't actually work, I'm suggesting that some jobs might not seem like work. Unfortunately, I don't have one of those jobs and I'm guessing you don't either. For the majority of us, work is a daily grind of repeating the same repetitive task day after day, month after month, year after year while spending 8 or more hours a day with arrogant bosses and surly co-workers.

There is, however, hope for us drones. A change is coming. It may not be today, tomorrow or even this year, but your present situation will change. It has to, it's the law. Okay, maybe not the law, but it is a law. It's known as The Universal Law of Impermanence, which states that everything changes. Some change comes rapidly and some change takes eons, but eventually everything changes. You could find another job, get a promotion or transfer, or maybe your unfair boss or troublesome colleague will leave. Eventually the situation will change -- it has to.

Confucius said "Find a job you love and you'll never have to work another day in your life." If that sounds good to you, you probably don't want to wait eons for it to occur. Buddhism teaches us that we can either wait for the change to occur naturally, or we can initiate the change. It's the difference between taking control of our lives or leaving it all up to the whim of the universe.

How much time have you spent actually trying to improve your situation? Sure, complaining is easy but it accomplishes very little. Have you actually looked for another job? Have you tried to improve your skills through in-house training, adult learning centers, books or correspondence courses? If none of these options are available to you, have you tried creating a better relationship with your boss and co-workers? Even the smallest step in the right direction is progress.

There is no one solution that is perfect for everyone -- we all have unique situations, but if we are persistent and creative enough there are always options available to begin the process of change. Some people believe that finding happiness at work is as elusive as finding the Holy Grail, but how will you know until you've really tried?

You can help speed up the process of change or you can wait for it to occur naturally. Either way, a change is coming -- it's a law.
