Puzzle of job satisfaction needs to be solvedIn the present day job scenario, I think it is becoming increasingly difficult to find the people who are satisfied with their job. When we think of job satisfaction there are mainly two things, earnings, and own interest. There are many more factors but these two seem to hold the key. But it is very difficult that the job you are doing is satisfying to you in terms of both money and interest. People who are earning well say that they are not satisfied as the job is of not their interest. On the other hand, people who have a job of their interest complain that they are not earning well and hence they are not satisfied. Sometimes these two aspects seem like parallel lines which never meet.
People keep on searching so-called "Job satisfaction" just like a traveler in a desert who keeps on running behind the mirage but never reaches there. So why to waste our life in this endless run? Let us accept this reality. Let us try to keep earning and interest as separate entities. Let our primary job give us good salary we require to live a comfortable life and that's all. Along with it let us carve out time to do something side by side which caters to our interest like singing, painting, technical work etc. It's wise to keep these two things separate. Mixing them up causes job dissatisfaction I feel.
