How much is your job costing you?

June 18th, 2008 | No Comments |

This may seem like an odd question, but have you ever figured out how much it is really costing you to work for someone else? Think about it…There’s the time you commute, gas, stress, the wear and tear on your vehicle, lunches out, work clothes, business suites, child care, traffic tolls, maybe even traffic tickets…You get the picture! It is expensive to have a job in more ways than just mentioned.

Other┬áthan just the dollars…what else is it costing you? Your health? Your sanity? Your family? Your Time? There is some more food for thought! How many times have you worked that highly stressful 12 hour day? After a week of that, have you gotten much sleep? Are you stress free? Have you spent any time with your family. Have you done anything productive for yourself? No! Most likely you had very little sleep due to the stress, you got angry at your kids and your wife when you got home for no reason and barely had time to say “hi” to them before they went to sleep. For what? For your boss? You must really love him to sacrifice all that you are!

Do you know the real definition of J.O.B? J.O.B. = Just Over Broke! According to the latest statistics, the average US family income is $31,000. I used to live off of 36k and could barely afford to go to the movies and buy popcorn at the same time. I was renting, I had one car, and was not living a life of luxury. That is scraping by!

I am not in any way down playing a job or employees. We need them as employers and entrepreneurs. There is a very small percentage of individuals that really get to live their dreams. I believe it is less than 3%! How pathetic is that? What category are you in….the 97% or the 3%? How much is your job costing you? It’s really costing you your life!
