How Much Time Have You Lost?
Our professional past haunts us — the hours, the days and the years we labored in jobs we hated. Jobs we couldn’t stand. Jobs that were not us.
“Having spent 18 years doing work that isn’t personally fulfilling, I feel like I’m making up for lost time,” said Kathy Caprino; a writer, leadership trainer, Forbes columnist, business/success coach and Goaly strategist.
Eighteen years of doing something that wasn’t her.
“If we can reveal the real experience of our lives,” Kathy said, “I feel that’s what really engages people.”
She also started the Amazing Career Project, an online workshop tailored for women who want to achieve career bliss and be empowered to live the professional life for which they’ve longed.
We Hate Our Work
A 2013 study by Gallup titled “State of the American Workplace” revealed just how miserable we are:
- 52% of employees said they are not engaged with their work
- 18% of employees said they are actively disengaged with their work
- Only 30% of employees said they were actually engaged in their work
The Gallup study also showed the newest generation of workers are more frustrated with their work than any other generation who has come before them.
Only 28% of millennials say their engaged in their work, while 55% say they’re not engaged and 17% say they’re actively disengaged.
In total, the workforce has about 106 million people who aren’t engaged in their workplace.
“The vast majority of U.S. workers are not reaching their full potential.”
“The vast majority of U.S. workers are not reaching their full potential,” the report said.
The cost of our workplace frustration isn’t just measured in hours or days or weeks lost — we’re also the vitality of our self, the power of our dreams and the inspiration of fulfillment. We’re not reaching our full potential. We’re paying a heavy price, but we don’t have to.
Let’s image this week you found the magic key to having a fulfilling career. You’d have 2,800 hours every year to do something you’d love.
The statistics show you’d be more productive at work, you’d be more happy at home and you’d be more fulfilled in life.
If you don’t think it’s possible, Kathy Caprino knows how you feel. She spent 50,000 hours stuck in jobs in which she didn’t enjoy true fulfillment.
“Everyday I ask that question: How can I help? If I can help one other person a day, it’s a beautiful day.”
She decided to make a change. She went from disengaged to engaged, from joyless to joyful. She went from feeling helpless to wanting to help.
“Now as a speaker and a writer and a leadership trainer, my work is helping women step up to their highest potential,” Kathy said. “Everyday I ask that question: How can help? If I can help one other person a day, it’s a beautiful day.”
