If you’re spending eight hours a day (or more) in a job that you’re not crazy about, then you have three options moving forward. That’s right, only three! And whining at the water cooler about how much you hate your job isn’t one of them!
If I sound harsh, I’ll apologize, but I stand by what I said! You see, life is too short to “survive” a job that you hate. Which is why I wrote my latest column in The Globe and Mail that published earlier today.

Do you agree?
So I know the title of this column – “Hate your job?” – sounds tough, and I meant it to be. But now it’s your turn. Do you agree with my “tough love” approach? What about the advice I’ve offered around choice #3? I would love to hear what you think. Please add your comments below.
I write a regular monthly column for The Globe and Mail Report on Business, and they often focus on how to position yourself for career growth and success. Here are links to some of the more recent ones:
