We will also be remembering that WWI ended years ago in and to this end the Royal British Legion will be one of the beneficiaries of the funds raised from the event.
There are large numbers of people who are extremely unhappy with their careers. The reasons for that unhappiness are many: Boredom due to the repetitiveness of the work. Low salary with heavy work load.
Too many years at the same job so that it is no longer challenging. Absence of a career ladder for advancement. Very short vacation time.
Working in a corporate environment that is unresponsive to worker needs and suggestions. Working in an authoritarian environment in which there is a lot of hostility.
Low prestige and status for the type of job position. These are just a few of the factors that cause work and career dissatisfaction.
Despite the fact that so many people are unhappy with their career choices, they remain in their jobs without making any changes.
For some, a dim or pessimistic view of life leaves them with the notion that nothing better can be expected in their lives. Then, too, there are people who want job security regardless of how unhappy they are with their circumstances.
These are people whose productivity decreases over the years. Poor evaluations and low salary are acceptable trade-offs for the sake of safety and job security. Their approach to job unhappiness is to count the days until each holiday, to each vacation, and to their day of retirement.
Of course, there are people who need their present job regardless of how unhappy they may be.
These are people with families to feed and clothe, and mortgages to pay. Many people seem unaware that they could have choices and make choices and changes in their career paths. Believing they have no options, they just continue, in a dogged and stubborn way, to go the same job, never understanding that their lives could be better.
There is another type of career person who is unhappy with what they do and who is aware that career change is possible and desirable.
Yet, they have no idea of what they would do to make a living if they did not maintain their present status. In fact, these are individuals who never knew what they wanted to do.
When asked what their dreams were when they were children, they draw a blank and report that they never had any dreams.
When asked how they selected their present work, they provide explanations about how they found the job or how the job found them.
However, these people make it clear that there was no motivating force that drove them toward what they are now doing. Perhaps the fact that it pays "good money" was as good a motivator as anything else.
For this individual, as for many others, there was a time, years ago, when the economy was different and people were guaranteed a job for the rest of their lives. Today, with a fast changing economy deeply affected by the international situation including the shortage of oil and energy sources, and other nations with competing economies, including the fact that many companies are now moving overseas where labor and manufacturing are less expensive than in the United States, there is no longer any guarantee about working for one company or even in one type of business for the remainder of a person's life.
