Someone wrote to me recently about working very hard and finally getting their dream job, only to discover that they hated it! That sucks and I know many of us have been there before in our own careers. It would be a tragedy to throw away a high paying, promising career if the reason why we hated it was something that we could control.
In this episode, I read their message and then respond with what I think is really going on. I don't think this person hated their job, but I do think they hated the environment that they were doing their job in. Once you hear their predicament, tell me: what do you think they should do?
