Almost always, it’s the people you work with that stop you from canning a job you hate. It’s the fact that there are a bunch of like-minded individuals who equally hate:
- the direction (or lack thereof) that the company is taking
- the people at the helm who are responsible for 1.
- their job because they have to follow orders from 2.
This work clique can be a bit of a trap at times. Perpetuating the disdain for the job can divert focus away from trying to get into a better spot and just breeds the hatred. The group’s collective purpose should be to motivate and not to foster unhappiness. I’m stuck in one of those groups now. Thankfully, a number have left, finding new jobs. This, if anything, is a great motivator. I’m one of the few that are still stuck and heaven forbid that I become the last man standing. I need to get out of this place.
