Barry Schwartz has written a piece for the Sunday NY Times called “Rethinking Work,” which asks the questions, is it human nature to hate your job? On the contrary.
HOW satisfied are we with our jobs? Gallup regularly polls workers around the world to find out. Its survey last year found that almost 90 percent of workers were either “not engaged” or “actively disengaged” from their jobs. Think about that: Nine out of 10 workers spend half their waking lives doing things they don’t really want to do in places they don’t particularly want to be. [NYTimes.com]
