Back to the Grind
Holiday over, back to the grind. No doubt we will all hear lots of groaning about getting back to work. Why? It’s a social thing. Complaining about one’s job is some sort of time-honored tradition, the only conceivable benefit of which is to try and connect to your fellow employees. It accomplishes other things too, like lowering morale and job satisfaction, hurting productivity, annoying co-workers. While we shouldn’t generally feel guilty for being prosperous, it would behoove us to get a wider view of the world the next time we think of complaining about the work we signed up to do.
