Guest Post from Gabrielle, Career Coach and Consultant; Founder of GabrielleBill.com I remember it like it was yesterday. I’d be peacefully asleep, dreaming of some blissful nonsense and then — BEEP BEEEP BEEEEEEP — the shrill sound of my old-school alarm clock would pull me from my reverie at 6:30am. I’d lay there for a while, as the reality of my situation washed over me: rush through coffee, shower, breakfast; commute 45 minutes (if it’s a good day), work 8 dreadful hours, commute an hour and a half home (if it’s a bad day), collapse on the couch, dinner, sleep. Ugh. “Can I pretend to be sick today?” I’d consider, more days than not. But ultimately, my integrity wouldn’t allow it, and I’d drag my zombie body from bed and get on with the day, hoping it wasn’t one that would end in tears. Does this sound familiar? For your sake, and mine, I hope it doesn’t, but the reality is that not all jobs are good jobs, not all bosses are good bosses, and sometimes you find yourself in that awkward position of making a shit ton of money, yet hating your life. But how do you know, especially in today’s world where we’re trained to believe we’re all spoiled millennials who unfairly expect the world to land at our feet, whether or not it’s you that needs to change or the job?
