Just employee #1,548

I had a chat recently with someone who loves his job. He left a stable job he hated and was bored at for something that was a little bit riskier and a whole lot more fun, exciting, and innovative. He said to me, sure, it’s great to work at a stable company where the employee head count is over a thousand, where it doesn’t matter if you slack off for the day and update yourself on everything in your Facebook or Twitter feed, but it’s even more rewarding to go into a job where every single day, you contribute something that counts. It made me even more painfully aware of how meaningless work could potentially be if you allow yourself to get too complacent and comfortable.
