You can’t stand the repetition of a normal 9 to 5 job and want a more exciting a fulfilling life.

Do you feel like you need to do something more stimulating, exciting and fulfilling with your life? Rather than working a standard 9 to 5 job where you’re doing the same thing every day, for the next 40 plus years until you retire. Leaving you bored, dissatisfied and unexcited about life… Does this sound like how you feel?

Every time I was working a new job, I found that my boredom meter starts to kick in around the 6 to 12 months mark. I could also describe it as the ‘job change itch.’

If I felt myself getting bored and itchy for change around the 6 months mark, I would make myself push through until I had worked for at least 12 months in the same job. Only because otherwise it would look really bad on my resume. And deter future employers from hiring me… If I can’t even stay in one job for more than 6 months.

As soon as I successfully hit 12 months, I would then give myself the OK to start applying for a new job again. Either internally or externally. But either way, I felt like I had to do something different or I was going to go insane. I just could not stand being in the same job and doing the same thing over and over again.

I would apply for a new job hoping that the next job would be better. And enable me to have a more exciting, enjoyable and fulfilling work life… But it never was. And it just became a vicious cycle of me job hoping from one to the next.

Even when I switched careers altogether to work in a completely different industry. In the hope that maybe I could find a different career that suited me more. And one that was more aligned with my passions and interests. Surely then I would not get bored and restless so easily. And surely then I would be able to stick to that job for the rest of my life…

However as good as that idea was… Reality did not quite agree with it… In reality, no matter what job or career I worked in… No matter how ‘interested’ and passionate I am about a particular field of work… It was not long before I felt restless and dissatisfied again. The ‘thing’ I was so passionate about loses its flavour over time. And I’m always back to square one again…

A job will always be a job. No matter how great or exciting it may seem at first…

I looked at some of my colleagues that worked in the same job for 4 years, 7 years, even 10 years. And I just could not wrap my head around it. How do they do it?

I applaud them for their commitment, consistency and loyalty to their job. But I just can’t imagine myself doing that. Even if my life depended on it…

If you’re anything like me. And you want a more exciting and fulfilling life… You want to do what you love while still make a decent living. Without sacrificing on one or the other… Then an online business might just be the right thing for you.

You can start an online business in any area of your interest. And the journey of building a business from scratch and watching it grow, will never get boring. Every day will be a new adventure of learning, growing and improving your business. As well as improving yourself along the way…
