Beyond the Paycheck
This article from the LA Times claims that you are more likely to be satisfied when you find meaning and pleasure within your job than when you soley perceive receiving a paycheck as your only reward.
Since we no longer have to hunt for shelter and food, we have stored up that energy which shifts to other areas in our life. Still ingrained in each of us is the ancestral urge to link effort and purpose.
In several recent studies, social scientists have zeroed in on why paychecks alone can’t explain the link between work and well-being. The evidence shows that people can find meaning in seemingly insignificant jobs and that even trivial tasks make us far happier than no tasks at all.
“We become very dedicated to things it would be hard to be dedicated to if we were perfectly rational,” says behavioral scientist Dan Ariely, author of “The Upside of Irrationality,” published in June. “It turns out you can give people lots of meaning in lots of ways, even small ones.”
People consider work of just about any kind to be better than no work at all, and it improves their mental health in most cases.
So tell us what you think. Are you satisfied just bringing a paycheck home or do you find yourself happier when you get to see the fruits of your labor?
Let us help you put that energy towards a new opportunity; register with us and we’ll work with you on finding a new job that takes you higher. www.techead.com/staffing
