Welcome to the original HateJobBlog.Com. If you are confused about what you want to do for a living, maybe I can help you find a job you will love. I spent a whole career not liking what I did for a living. I’m living proof it’s never too late to find your niche or true calling in life.
Way back in my younger days, it didn’t take me long to become a job hater. I worked everyday after school as a plumber apprentice. Like most teens, I didn’t have to search for a job.
It was kind of cool way back then because I was one of the few adolescents at school who made decent money learning a trade. Plumbing was a family tradition that fell into my lap because it was there. This was good and bad at the same time.
I remember my fair weather friends joking around making fun of me being a plumber because they thought all they did was unclog toilets! I did do that, but it’s only a small part of it.
Yet, it was they who had no jobs, no money. I also had the car while they were jealous! To them back then in high school, I was rolling in the dough. But for me, that adolescent prestige would soon tarnish and grow old.
What I did for a living wasn’t the real me. But, I stuck with it because of the money and benefits through the years. I was never mechanically inclined like most tradesmen I worked with. That aptitude seemed to come easy for them. I always learned the craft the hard way.
Through the years, I yearned to discover something else I’d love to do for a living but never seemed to land on anything else. That feeling haunted me through the years.
It was all too easy to remain in something familiar because the money was good, it was all I knew, made me feel secure and paid all the bills on time.
