Daily Prompts #105 – Why Is Your Workplace Hurting You?

Writing a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Not sure how to participate? Here are the steps to get started. Source: Slog

I heard the word “slog” for the first time when I entered into this IT Industry. Many people would say that once you start working you will realize that there is nothing here except slogging endlessly and not getting paid for the slog.

It was during this time, I happened to read one of the best books that i have ever read in my life i.e. The Autobiography of Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson. In the book, you can see lots of places where Steve Jobs stresses on the importance of loving the work that you do.

He once said “The only way to do great work is to love what you do”. How many of us love the work we do right from the bottom of their heart? When was the last time you did something for the first time? The moment we discover the answer for these questions we would end the “slogging saga” of all our working lives.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Ambika… Long time since I read ur blog.. This is again incredible. Of course I hear Monday blue syndrome in many of IT professionals.. Slogging as u said again is a result of pressurised work environment that one feels.
    I see below reasons for this
    Technology isn’t interesting for them
    Manger isnt motivating enough
    Work doesn’t seem challenging
    Pressure handling attitude is not evident
    Doesn’t like learning new things
    Improper prioritization of work and many more..
    Well I think if u conduct a survey I’m sure these points would definitely come into picture of why one doesn’t love his work .. Keep sharing u r always rocking ..

    1. Thank you. Thanks a ton for reading my blog. Unfortunately, all the above said points are true. Hence no need of a survey. Its like clear on the wall that if you don’t love what you do… you will end up slogging.
