I believe enjoying your career is a major factor in ones ability to enjoy life. I enjoy being a teacher at The Mosaic School. Working with students with disabilities has been very rewarding. It is a great feeling when a student works so hard to accomplish something and you are able to help them to achieve their goal. An enjoyable career for me would be one where I am challenged often and able to keep busy during the work day which is what i have at Mosaic.
As much as it is important to enjoy your career it is also important to recieve a good salary. I work 2 jobs (pizza delivery on the side), 7 days a week to make ends meet. As much as i love working for both jobs, it does not give me much time to balance my life.
I have learned that coworkers become family after working closely for awhile. When these are positive relationships within the workplace, i feel it helps to motivate employees.
The hardest part of a career is having to deal with negative relationships within the workplace. Whether it be a boss or coworker, negative relationships within the workplace can be handled best with common courtesy and being civil with one another.
