A person can enjoy his or her stressful job by feeling positive and energetic. You knew you have a stressful job and then you keep on complaining about it and it will only make matters worst. You can't even leave the job because you can't find any job outside your company so you are stuck with it. the best thing to do is to pretend and conditioned your mind that what you are doing is the best thing that ever happen to you. Maybe in this kind of frame of mind you can learn to love your job and accept the hardship it was associated with. maybe your load will lighten up and you will be greatly improving the quality of your work and later on you will get promoted.

First and foremost thank you for the contents of your reply... I too agree on your opinion, but the only thing that I would like to add on is that PRETENDING is totally different from ENJOYING what you do... Besides there is totally no task given that a person can't do especially there's the right working attitude that should be a part of the person's system... :)

Yes, it is possible to enjoy your work. A worker just have to change his/her attitude and outlook in life. Try take a look at this: Christopher Wren was a philosopher, astronomer and architect, commissioned to rebuild St. Paul's Cathedral after the Great Fire of 1666 that leveled London. To be more fire resistant, the church was to be rebuilt with brick, which is labor intensive and would require more than 50 years of backbreaking work to finish. One day in 1671, Wren observed three of his bricklayers working on a scaffold. He approached the first one, who had a listless expression on his face, and asked him, "What are you doing?" The first bricklayer, without even looking up, replied, "I'm making a wage." Wren approached the second bricklayer on the scaffold and asked him the same question, "What are you doing?" The second bricklayer looked back at him slowly with a blank expression and muttered, "I'm building a straight wall," then turned back to his work. The third bricklayer on the scaffold seemed much more excited to be there than the first two, whistling as he worked, accomplishing more than the other two combined. Wren then asked him, "And what are you doing?" This bricklayer stood up straight and with a gleam in his eye proclaimed, "I'm building a cathedral for the Almighty."

well, i guess you will never really enjoy your job if you dont love the job... coz if you learn to love it, you will even learn to enjoy the pressure... and i would say, take time to relax... youre stressed because your thinking too much...

Ca't really say that I'm under a grave stress as of the moment... Just wanna come up of a discussion which some people tend to undergo in certain situations and can't handle the problem. I'm just a new graduate student and my major concern as of the moment is passing my licensure exam this coming December '10... I really don't acknowledge it as a stress yet as a motivator... :) some people take it the opposite way that's why they end up loco and nuts... thanks for the reply...
