Given the choice, would you prefer to be in a series of highly stimulating, generally healthy relationships, with no guarantee of happily ever after, or have one life partner you felt somewhat bored but comfortable with? Which scenario spells success for you personally?
In the workplace, what would be easier for you? Loving your actual job and working alongside unpleasant people? Or would you rather have a crappy job and love the people you work with? Obviously, neither is ideal, but which would be the lesser of two evils? I think I’d prefer the former, provided it was temporary, because the job itself would motivate me to wake up in the morning, and the idiot colleagues would provide material for story characters. Then again, unpleasant people do a number on your psyche. The sting of a sub-par job would be soothed by the presence of great friends.
Truth be told, there are idiots everywhere. The best you can hope for is a workplace where a) your job is fabulous and there’s a minimal number of jerks or b) you work for yourself.
More on this topic this weekend. Goodnight!
