hi friends!well the truth of the world is we all have to work so as to survive we have to work really hard to earn a living to fill our stomach as well as our familie's needs. but some time we really get sick and bored with our jobs and pray if we could get a easier way of earning money.i personally have not yet expierienced it as i am studying now.sometimes we get angry with our boss,who even asks some to work on sundays.we get less time to rel;ax,mind is always in tension .

Well I'm really searching for a fulfilling work now because in my current job, I don't feel really like that I should be working here. Well the work is really very far from what I have studied and I think it's about time for me to go on and find my fulfillment in work.

life seems to be a struggle. working for a long time is really boring if the jobs we do are not what we are fond of. always thinking about this problem.

yes, sometimes i feel bored with my work especially when we do nothing. i work in a government agency and the time management there is not as that strict as in the private sector. there are some days that we do a lot of work but there are also times that we do nothing especially in the afternoon when we are near to go home. the most boring thing in life is when we do nothing and just sitting there and waiting for the time to past by. i'm also bored at my work because we almost do the same thing everyday and i feel that there was already no thrill in my work.

Yes, sometimes I feel so bored and feel like resign. But can't do so, I still need to earn money for my usage. What can I do, I can't find a higher salary and relax job. You are correct, we work so that we earn money for surviving.

Hello dear jijomathew. If we are always kept so busy with our work, it is quite possible that we might feel bored. Yes, I also think that it would be great if we could find some easy way to make some easy money without working that hard, which would be wonderful. And we would be able to enjoy more of our life and our time. Thanks.

Not bored at all. I make most of my moey on line, and from the sale of the cookbook that I published a few years back. I enjoy the heck out of what I do.

At times everyone however devoted a person may be gets bored with a job, so when such a situation comes then I plan a vacation and see a new place in our country and get refreshed and then after coming back I start working with new vigour.

your article makes me remember my father's words that maybe the job you like is not suitable for you . Over the past years ,i found gradually that is the truth .

I'm lucky I guess, I love what I do.I sell online fulltime, but it's a trade off doing what I love, I just have less to live on.

well, i am actually sometimes... but we have no choice... we have to do it in order to survive and we are left with no choice... otherwise, we can't survive... so as much as i dislike my job or get bored with my job, i will do it... my only consolation is everybody in this world is doing too and i'm not the only one struggling here... that makes me feel much better... take care and have a nice day...

My first day at work really excites me, new faces, new challenges, new ideas, everything is new to me, that is the good news when i was new in my work, It never came to my mind that I am not going to be tired of working or making it as my daily routine. Later on, as i progress in my work, and having it as my daily routine, makes me feel sick and bored now. When i go to my desk, i would see my paperwork, my boss, my collegues, same old faces. Nothing is new, well i guess coz thats the way it should be, i mean, its a part of life we have to earn for us to make a living, even if i am bored i have to, otherwise who can i depend on, none but myself. What i just usually do when I'm at work and bored , i just sing, talk to myself and CHAT. Thanks to bill gates and to his technology.

Hi Jijo I like my job and have to interact with customers of various levels including children and famous people like writers, actors etc. I enjoy working there and also enjoy to interact with people. Actually I never thought to change this job and my job is a hassle free one.

I do get sick of my work, but I love it, I mean..lol..well, let me explain, I have to wake as early as 4 pm to go to work, so the irritating part is I had to wake up early, then I tend to ger sleepy in the morning. I'm not a morning person u know, u asked me why I chose the sched, coz I could go home as early as 2pm, so I could still have another job. well, not only that I could still have a lax time after, what i get sick and bored about my job is when my students don't like studying too. well, I loive it, sometimes I don't.

Well, be happy with your role now as a student. It is the best times of life one can ever have when growing up. Only datelines to worry about is the project dateline. Once it is handed in, you do not have to follow up anymore. Not that I am grumbling about my work, it is something that we all have to face when we go out anyways. And things do not just end there when you accomplish your job to meet the dateline. There are always follow ups after that. And then more upgrades and follow ups. And so on, and so forth. There are always ups and downs to working. The ups? Well, there is a big salary at the end of the month to look forward to. Then there is the bonuses that one strive for during the qualifying year. The lull periods in between the busy ones where one can actually breath. Then there is the adreline rush when things start to pick up and you have datelines to meet. The downs? Well, as usual, the datelines. Bosses are always asking for something that was dued yesterday. So, just work your butt off to get things done. But the upside to it is that you learn really fast. And also to manage your time in order to meet those really tight datelines. The repetitive routine tasks that has to be performed as it is part of your job could be quite mundane at times. There are two ways to look at things. The optimistic side, or the pessimistic side. When looking at your job, do not just look at the tasks alone. Thing of the people you work with. The team you have lunch with. The colleagues you share tigh datelines with. Factor in how the work culture is in your workplace. Add to that the environment and resources that are made available to you. Then you will start to see that for everything that you feel is mundane about your job, there is something that compensates for it. For example, if the job is a really tough one where you need resources to get done, you have a boss who is willing to provide all necessary resource to you so that you can get the job done. A task that requires a lot of effort across different departments and teams, you have a bunch of really cooperative collegues in those departments who are also keen to clear the tasks at hand so that they can move on to the next, thus enabling you to complete YOUR task at hand quickly. I can go on listing so many examples. So it is entirely up to you to see how you want to view your job. The optimistic side or the pessimistic side?
