- You spend 8 hours + doing your job everyday. That is a long time to be doing something you don't enjoy.
- If you don't enjoy your work and you are not motivated then you will not be able to reach your full potential! Being happy at work is helps you be productive and improves your motivation and performance.
- According to applied psychology research "People who enjoy their jobs are more likely to be optimistic, motivated, learn faster, make fewer mistakes, and better business decisions."
- Doing something you like during the work day also makes you more positive towards the rest of your time; you will leave work in a better mood, and be more present for all the other moments in life!
Anesthesiology can prove to be an extremely rewarding career with both in tangible and intangible benefits. You'll be responsible for determining and administering the right dose of anesthesia for your patient, based on their weight and medical background during the surgery or during post-operative care. Anesthesiologists are responsible for the welfare of the patient when undergoing surgery under anesthesia. Anesthesiologists are often advocates for the patient in the operating room and are the first line of communication between the patient and the surgical team. If you’ve done your job well as an anesthesiologist, the patient will usually have no complications stemming from the anesthesia or pain medication during or after the procedure.

As you continue your education and even after you have graduated, you come to realize that most of your life you will be either at work or sleeping. When you enjoy work and what you do, it gives you time back. For example, working 8-9 hours per day on a job you don't enjoy, will leave you waiting for the hours to go by until you "punch out". On the other hand, if you like your job, you're using those 8-9 hours in the day to grow, you feel motivated and engaged. In other words, you have 8-9 more hours in the day than those who don't enjoy their work.
Sometimes, it's not even about the work that we do, but the people we work with. From my personal experience, having a good team at work can help you enjoy what you do... even if sometime you feel bored.
It's great that you want to be an anesthesiologist, keep pursuing your dream!
It's important to enjoy your work because it's something you'll most likely be doing for the rest of your life. People who work full time jobs often work 5/7 days of the week, so you want to be sure that you're okay spending that much time doing your job. It helps your work feel more fulfilling and rewarding, which is super important. Yes, it is important that you get a job that can provide you with financial stability, but it is also crucial that you don't wake up every morning dreading what's to come. Life is too short to hate what you do!
If you want to be an anesthesiologist just for the high salary (I was definitely in that boat at one point), you should reconsider. Take time to shadow anesthesiologists and talk to them. Ask them what the highs and lows of their jobs are. Medicine is a very difficult path and you should only pursue it if you know you love it--not if you think it's a good longterm decision. (:
This is a great question to ask - and a crucial one.
When I was your age, I thought getting a job is a mandatory process after leaving college,
And other than that, I hadn’t put much thought into why I had to do it other than getting bills paid.
When I started my first internship in first year of university,
I begin to understand why it is absolutely essential for you to enjoy your job to lead a happy life.
You devote over 8 hours of your day in your job,
And if you don’t enjoy what you do and you simply see it as a mean to earn income,
This means you are throwing away 1/3 of your adult life and by the time you retire,
You will look back and realize you have wasted your youth and energy on a job you have no passion for.
However, if you find a job that you like and even better, if it serves your purpose,
You are not only making a living but also enjoying your job daily -
To contribute to your purpose day in day out and you will realize that no time is wasted,
And you appreciate your daily life way more.
Discover your passion, talk to people who are working at your aspired industry,
And make an informed choice as you continue to pursue your studies.
That is a great question. I think, in general, you need to enjoy what you are doing, as it makes it feel less like "work" everyday. That is not to say that there won't be days where you go home and are frustrated about your career. But if you decide on a career path that is fulfilling to you and is in a field you enjoy, the work days go by quicker and you are happier.
One way to test out what you may enjoy is an internship or job shadows. These are great ways to see if what you think you want to pursue is really something that you want to do. Another way to get that exposure is in some of your entry level college courses. I have had friends who thought they wanted to go into engineering, but got to their college level science and math classes and realized they did not enjoy that type of work and were able to quickly pivot into another major.
Hope that helps!
You may spend more or as much of your waking hours working during your work days. Therefore, it's really important to find enjoyment in what you do. You still have time to decide on a career. I would recommend finding volunteer opportunities or part time work, for example in a hospital, so you have more exposure to what it is like to work there and decide if you like it. I would also suggest finding mentors either through your own connections or by reaching out to your local hospitals to see if they can put you in touch with an anesthesiologist. For any career field in which you are interested, meeting with and talking to someone in the career field will help you to better understand what is involved in that career and to decide if it is something you will enjoy.
Best of luck,
It's a great question and I think one that you will revisit throughout your career as a student and a professional. Depending on your job, you'll not only spend hundreds of hours preparing for your career as a student, but you'll then jump into a full work week, every week, each year. It's a lot of time! If you like the work that you do, that investment is worth it. Now, realistically, will you like your job every day? Probably not. Each job has its ups and downs. However, if you can say that you enjoy your job most days, than it's worth it. It can feel like a big decision, but people change careers more often than you would think. Find something you're passionate about and go for it!
That is not to say everything will be fun or enjoyable, but if the area of work is enjoyable you can find reward in it.
I guess easy awnser is: its super important to enjoy your work because most of your life's time is spent working.
So the word "work" alone already has such a heavy connotation, you kind of think of it as labor, but it should be pleasurable.
It's so important to take the time to understand in what area you would like to work, what would make you feel good by the end of the day, what makes you excited to start of the week, and not feeling anxious for the weekend because we don't enjoy what we do.
Obviously we it's impossible for every task in a job to be a wonderful joy, there are still broccolis to eat :) but it is the mindset that you have that makes it worth it.
Enjoying the work that you do, kind of makes you feel like you're not working at all, and more like living your life, we don't want to get consumed doing something that we don't enjoy for the rest of our lives.
For instance, I love my job, and the work that I do, so I use the expression "I'm in the honeymoon phase", because it's been years now, but I'm still very much happy with it. Try to look for that feelljng at a work, and you'll understand for sure why it is so important to enjoy what you do ;)
