How excited are you when it’s Monday, I mean when it’s time for office? You hate going to office? In this post I’ll share with you some tips on how to have pleasure in your job and enjoy what you do.
“Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.”Aristotle
I’ll share a personal experience with you. When I was working as a hotel manager I felt horrible day and night even though I was earning a “manageable salary.” I was always seeing things I didn’t love, which made me feel more miserable.
I asked myself, “How can I find pleasure in this job?”
Here is what I did:
I spent more time with my customers-the smokers, the drinkers and you know other set of people you can have as a manage of a hotel.
From then I started finding pleasure and I was really enjoying it until I took a bow.
How to have pleasure in your job
- Keep or write what makes you happy around you
- Time management
- Plan your day ahead
- Spend a few minutes with fun co-worker
- Appreciate yourself for a small task done

Have your list of positives, you get motivated each time you see things that makes you happy.
Time management: Appropriate time management skills will help you feel more comfortable at work.
Plan your day ahead:If you don’t want to worry about forgetting anything important write them on a piece of paper a day or some hours ahead. It’s good to plan your day ahead, doing this will let you have pleasure in what you are able to execute.
Spend a few minutes with humorous co-worker: There will definitely be someone who you find funny in your office, spend a few minutes with him or her. It could be during break. If you’re scared it may lead to something romantic, call your spouse spend a few minutes with him on phone. I once did this and it worked for me. It’s a simple way of relieving yourself of stress. Stress leads to boredom and “demotivation.”
Appreciate yourself for a small task done.
While it may be tasking implementing the above tips particularly when you’re not self-employed, you can still adjust to enjoy what you do.
