Having the right job isn’t a matter of life and death…..

Posted on Monday Jul 7

Having the right job isn't a matter of life and death.....
it's much more important than that." target="_blank">" border="0" width="500" height="325" />

Often quoted (and mis-quoted in various interesting ways), the legendary former Liverpool FC boss Bill Shankly's most famous quote actually goes like this: "Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I am very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it's much, much more important than that!"

Football was Shankly's hobby, his main interest. It was his passion and it shaped his whole life. It was also his job. He took his job home with him and shared it enthusiastically with his family, almost constantly, and as a result, his family lived his job too.

Few of us would be fortunate enough to feel our job allows us to fulfil as many of life's dreams or goals as his did, however, most of us would agree that being in the wrong job - one which holds little personal interest for us - can have a potentially negative impact on our personal lives - and in turn, the lives of those around us.

When we spend so much of our time at work (on average 35% of our waking hours), why do so many of us continue treading this dark mill only to bring the worst of it home with us?

It's probably a combination of factors including some of these: we don't think we are qualified enough to secure the job we'd enjoy more...? we are trapped in a job which pays well and we can't take the financial risk...? we don't think we have the energy to start from the bottom and work our way back up again... ? through the hustle and bustle of a busy life we have simply lost sight of our initial dreams and goals...?

Almost every reason that exists could also be labelled an excuse and undoubtedly, we can't all jump off the corporate ladder and expect our families to fend for themselves while we pursue our childhood dreams.....but we could at least look into it - the truth is, it's never too late to seek the happiness of a career in a field you have more genuine interest in. Maybe you just need to find out if the impossible dream really is out of your reach before giving up on it completely.

Try these simple steps

- Brainstorm what you would really like to do and what you would get out of it
- Then work out if it's realistic in your current circumstances for you to take a shot at it
- Then either set about pursuing the dream starting now - alternatively, re-assert that you will make the most of what you already have

As Shanks also said "If you can't make decisions in life, you're a bl***y menace. You'd be better becoming an MP!"

We can't all become MP's so let's just make our minds up. Maybe to help you, have a look at some alternative job opportunities on
