On 3/30, I read something about why people stay at their job even though they don’t like it. A survey within a company indicates:
72% of people would rather work for themselves.
86% plan to actively look for a new job this year.
70% of employees in the company they work for and aren’t seeking it either.
58% of workers think they don’t need help in their careers and can figure it out for themselves.
The numbers tell us that out of 86% people who plan to look for a new job, only 2% are actively seeking job or looking for changes.
Some people say they are chained by the “Golden Handcuffs,” that is, the good pay and benefits. I would say they are very much the product of their own inertia, which is the only force that chains people to one place, one location, and one lifestyle.
Life is a lot richer than what we can possibly experience. Don’t let your inertia restrict you and limit you from developing your full potential.
