I recently sat in a seminar and among other things I learned;
- 51% of people would leave their job tomorrow if offered a new job today.
- 1 in 3 people are passively disengaged with their current job.
- 1 in 5 are actively disengaged in their job or working against the system.
I have blogged before about the importance of staying current and continually attending workshops, webinars, and conferences. This seminar was no different. However, the data left me in a state of thought. The thought of being an employee or an employer whereby 51% of the staff or you as an individual employee are so dissatisfied that should an offer of employment come from elsewhere, poof you’re gone!
How would those statistics change if we focused on our passion?
Seriously, if you are waking up every day to a situation that is not desirable or even slightly desirable then we need to consider change. Life is too short. Maybe it’s as I hit a half a century old I am becoming more pragmatic in thought. If I was coaching you and you shared anything that resembled these statistics, we would be actively working on a change strategy.
Let’s get you thinking, If you’re feeling miserable in your current situation, there are a few steps you can take.
Step 1: Focus on your Passion. It can often be difficult to define exactly what passion is. Here is some help. Begin by defining what makes you feel unstoppable, something that is in your thoughts every day. Still having a difficult time? Watch the youtube video “If Money Didn’t Matter”
