Two disturbing truths about work

I recently came across two disturbing truths about work that I wanted to share with you.

Fact #1 

You will spend about 80,000 hours of your life working.

Were you aware of that?

I did the math and it works out to 10 whole years of your life.

10 years, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

That’s a LOT of time.

That’s a LOT of your life that you’ll be spending at work.

Which means that if you’re doing work that you don’t find meaningful and fulfilling, you’re wasting a significant portion of your life.

Even if you have a fabulous marriage/relationship, even if you have engaging hobbies outside of work, it’s hard to make up for those 8+ hours every day where you’re doing something that you don’t find meaningful.

(BTW, that 80,000 hours only counts time at work. It doesn’t include time spent commuting to and from your work, time you spend thinking about work, sleepless nights worrying about your work, etc).

Fact #2

Only 13% of workers around the world feel actively engaged with their work.

Just 13%!

The other 87% have basically checked out and are just going through the motions.

Which means there are billions of people around the world that are wasting their lives in work that they don’t find meaningful.

Now, if you happen to be in the 13% who feel actively engaged with your work, then I congratulate you. You’re one of the lucky ones.

If you’re in the other 87%, then I’d like to help you.

The truth is that it pains me to see people stuck in work that they don’t find meaningful.

I was in your shoes for over 8 years of my life.

Those are 8 years of my life that I can never get back.

Eight years of my life that I dreaded going into work, wondering when and how I’d ever get out.

If you’re in that same situation, if you’re in that 87% of people who don’t find their work meaningful, then here’s what I want to offer you…
