Should You Stay In A Job You Are Not Passionate About?
Now, in a time where there are countless podcasts, books and TED Talks about chasing your dreams, you’d be inclined to think that’s a bad thing. You’re meant to leap out of bed every morning, bursting with excitement about what the day will hold, right? Well, maybe… or maybe not.
Here in Australia, we have a strong culture of entrepreneurism, challenging the status quo and only doing work we’re passionate about. After all, we spend roughly a third of our lives working, so we may as well do something we enjoy.
“There’s nothing wrong with being in another job that pays you but you’re not super passionate about while working away on your own dreams,” says Megna Murali, founder of Start Your Food Business. “All start-ups cost money and when it’s time to build your own dreams instead of someone else’s, you can work on yours and make it big.”
