    You need to find a job that you like and invest 100%, the only way I think you can achieve success and this applies to any job

    This has happened to me in the past. The way I get around it, is that I mentally tell myself "This is short term, and a stepping stone on the road to my next point of my future success".

    There is a difference between performing an unpleasant task and choosing an unwanted job.
    A recent survey showed that more than 60% of our nurses and teachers have no interest in the profession. They just wanted the pay. That is why no effort is put into teaching or nursing. Our grade 4 children came last out of 50 countries in a recent international test. It does not end there as witnessed by our woeful public service.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    This debate is a ridiculous waste of time - I'm out!

    Of course - we all have to work to pay our way and when push comes to shove most of us do whatever it takes whether we like it or not. I know an airline pilot who worked as a irrigation installer to get by because the airline folded a couple of years back.

    I get angry because people do not always get to choose to do the things they love to do - People often have to do crap work to get by - The BCOMM graduate doesn't flip burgers because she loves MacDonald - she does it to get by.

    Arrogance and sheer stupidity makes me really really angry...thankfully these days I choose to disengage rather than fight.
