“One is a struggle the other is dream.”
We go to our jobs on a daily basis and then come home. We go to the workplace then come home. Our lives take on this mundane process that seems to never go anywhere, until we realize there must be a change somewhere. So what is that change that must take place? It’s the change of finding a new job. But you also think about whether you want a job or build a career. Because building a job and having a career are two totally different goals. A job is a wage you’re paid for performing a task and a career is a lot more specialized.
This is what most people have, a job. They go to work, and they perform a task that pretty much anyone can be trained to perform. But it’s just that a task. And when you are working a task that virtually anyone can do, you now put yourself in a binding position. Because now, if anyone can do this you will easily be removed by someone else. But also, once a better means of productivity takes hold, you will be replaced. So without specialization certification you are literally holding to life by a thread.
Let’s get into the career, and acknowledge that this is what most people strive for in life. The difference between a job and career is that working on the register or grill of McDonald’s is a job, but the Regional Manager role is a career. One requires job training to complete, and the other requires your skill to contribute to the overall productivity of the organization. The main reason you want a career is because it doesn’t seem like work. You are doing what you love, so you’re theoretically living out your dreams.
