The Three Causes of Job Misery

Miserable at your job? Here are the three causes of job misery:


People need their efforts to be recognized in order to feel valuable. It is very important that someone ideally their employer spends time understanding their potential and assessing their skills. When people feel invisible and their presence will not be neglected, they fall into despair.


When you run the job, which has a positive effect on other people, even if it’s just one person, you feel that your work is worth. If no one benefits from your work, you feel your efforts make no sense.

No Goals

If you don’t know what your goal is, how can you determine if you’ve achieved it? When people have nothing compared to their results then they suffer. It helps to have a clear vision of what looks good and what can be done to improve. Otherwise, you’ll be without motivation and eventually you’ll be dissatisfied.
