Interest is the stuff that engages your energy with a task. So it was no surprise to look at the numbers and see that it’s strongly associated with both energy and engagement. The more interested you are in what you do, the more engagement you’ll experience . \in fact the numbers reveal that people who are most interested in their jobs are literally 110 percent more engaged in what they’re doing than the least interested and engage groups.
If you are not interested in what you do, the hours really drag. A day seems like a week and a week like nightmare .
So what makes you really interested in your job, other than believing that you’re doing something worthwhile?
According to psychologist Amy Wrzesniewski, work divides into three categories:
1- What she calls jobs?
A job you do for the money -it’s simply the means to an end because you find a purpose elsewhere.
Maybe you volunteer , something which is well known for increasing happiness, are caring for the others, or pursuing educational aims instead. You are not attached to the job yo do and will stop if any aspect of it becomes inconvenient or wrong for you.
A career you do for money and status , so when these run out you’ll start to look for a new job. A career only has a certain level of interest attached to it, which is why the material benefits associated with it matter so much.
It partly explains why so many people who were in finance are now looking at radically different career options-the money ran out. And they want to try to find their calling.
A calling involves intense interest in the work for its own sake. When you have a calling, you’ll see what you do as fulfilling in and of itself . Because it has meaning and gives you a sense of purpose. So even if the money or status cease, you’ll continue with the work. The time you put in is immaterial because it doesn’t feel like work.
