How many hours are you spending at work? Is your job worth your time? There are a series of questions when it comes to assessing the value of your work. No surprise other people keep on jumping from one company to another to get the job they dreamed of. On the other side, even if you switch to another company, it’s very hard to find satisfaction if you don’t love what you do. It’s like wasting your time to something that will not help you grow as an individual so why not look for other alternatives if it’s not worth it?

8 hours is a really long time for a person. Imagine sitting on a chair and working on a desk for a full 8 hours a day with small breaks in between. This would really trigger the question—is your job worth your time? Not all people can resign from their work immediately and for some, it’s never going to be an option. If you think your job is only eating up your time, use it wisely and immediately. Do something enjoyable at work other than your job. Talk to your colleagues. Read books—investing books if you are planning to invest. Watch informative videos to help you learn. Just make sure you are doing this without affecting your work.
While you are employed, you must see the value of passive income. This is the best alternative you could get if you don’t want to work anymore. The difference between having a job and investing is that taking a job means you will make an active income while investing provides you passive income. With passive income, you don’t have to spend 8 hours indoor and work on a desk. You don’t need to go to your office at all because passive income saves you from sweating and hustling in the busy corporate world. Consider investing as early as now.
Some people cannot afford to lose their work and that’s very understandable. Nowadays, young professionals rely too much on their work because of the belief to use their education to find a corporate job. If you are one of them and you want to spend your time at work wisely and efficiently, learn to multitask. Start an investing account and divide your time so you can still manage your work and focus on learning the art of investing. You will later discover that you don’t actually have to resign from your work to do things that can add value to your life. Sometimes, all you have to do is to do two things at a time.
