Loving your Work

Most of us had works that we are just forced to do because of the need for a source of income. Being a software developer, I love my job and I learned to love the circumstances regarding my job. Although not all of it is smooth sailing, at least I could say that I generelly love the work that I do. What do you think is the most motivating factor that will drive you to love your job?

I'm a teacher, and I LOVE being a teacher. I always tell people that I'm qualified to do all kinds of jobs. I read 50 pages an hour, I type around 80 wpm, I can use all kinds of software and hardware, I can draw, do audio and video editing (really basic stuff only, but hey!). Still, I don't want any other job. The great thing about teaching is that no matter how long you teach, no matter how good you become, you can always get better. I first became a teacher 14 years ago ... and HATED it! I was a miserable failure. I went on to do other things. But eventually I went back, learned from people, got to know people who enjoyed it and were good at it, and I learned a lot. There are days when I feel like a complete amateur, but hey, that's what I love about it! It's never boring. And my students? I love 'em. I love every one of 'em. Even the 'bad' ones. Heck, (and this is a secret, so don't tell, okay?) ESPECIALLY the 'bad' ones, 'cause they need love the most.

You know, we share the same sentiments. Back when I was in high school, my veri first aim after highschool is to take chemical engineering and after graduation, i'll get bact to my alma mater to teach! I also loved teaching, being a teacher or professor is one of my very first ambition when I was a child. Maybe it rund in our blood. My mother was an English Secondary School teacher. My father met her & she's already a teacher. Most of my aunts & cousins on my mother side has a profession in teaching ing High Schools and colleges.

I'm not really sure if I'm loving my work now. It's fine but I think their's something real big for me. But for now, I have to stay for my first job. Have no choice though.

I believe that it's not true. No matter what your situation is, you always have a choice. Maybe there are just some things that hinders you not to make the choice. But my advice to you, do what your heart tells you...
