Apathy causes a lack of interest in the very projects that create your success.
Certainty develops after performing task over and over again.
Forming certainty can also open the door to boredom.
I render emergency dental care in Kansas City.
Summer vacation finds most youth hunting for employment to remain productive.
The city parks and recreation department swimming pools had openings from lifeguards to pool hands.
The best job working around a pool was found to be the assistant to the chemical engineer. Hourly samples of the pool’s chlorine content was pretty easy to confront.
Before the pool opened for the day, a robotic cleaning system was monitored and removed from the pool by assistants to the chemical engineer.
The worst of the jobs, sanitation services, required trash removal and cleaning of areas connected to the facility. You would think getting to see girls in bikinis was worth the sweat in the heat of the day.
Working at the pool you quickly develop a lack of interest cleaning up after kids all day.
On occasion some of the kids who were aspiring artists drew pictures on the walls in brown mud like motifs, left in place for the world to see.
Years later similar drawings were seen on the bathroom walls of a psych ward filled with schizophrenic patients.
Boredom and apathy set in causing me to lose the summer job.
Not everyone appreciated the sun dried artwork left on the walls.
We all may encounter jobs that do not suit what we would like to spend the rest of our lives pursuing.
These jobs are stepping stones that can open the door to greater opportunities.
It takes a mature spirit to arrive on a job you may refer to as a stepping stone and give your best.
No one wants to feel invalidated while make a living performing the task of their job.
The work that we do day in and out is not the problem.
Apathy comes after heavy doses of invalidation by others, causing feelings of uncaring and indifference about the work that is done.
To remain interested in what you do, understand the higher purpose of your post.
Be thankful for the job that places food on your table.
Look for the hidden opportunities. By doing a good job and being known as a good worker, you place yourself in a position to receive favor for a higher paying job.
Apathy causes a loss of interest in what we are doing and defeats success.
Form the certainty that allows you to become good at what you do and defeat apathy.
