It is reported that the average American will spend 90,000 hours of their lives at work. Kind of blows your mind to consider that number, huh? Let’s break that down a bit… You’ve got 24 hours in a day, so 168 hours in a week, making 8,736 hours in your year. If you consider the statistic above, then that means that working 90,000 hours in your lifetime is the equivalent of working approximately 10.3 years straight, all day every day. Now that’s really mind-blowing!
What’s even more staggering is that only around 30% of those individuals, who are spending 90,000 hours of their lives at work, actually enjoy what they do and the company that they keep at work. The large majority of Americans are spending a full decade of their lives toiling away in an environment that brings no happiness and fulfills no passion! What a sad truth to be revealed.
So, now that we are aware of such a huge problem affecting our country’s workforce, what are we to do about it? How can we create a way to allow our passions and our paychecks to be aligned with one another and not in opposition? Something has to be done to change the statistics and create a job market that is filled with those who love what they do and are not only tolerant but excited to dig into their work every day.
