There’s an abundance of bitching and moaning in the workforce today. Sadly, at times, I have to include myself in that statement.

However, with the general state of technology, and various ways to learn new trades these days, nobody has room to whine.

I’m not a fan of the “rah, rah, jump if you hate your company” mentality though. That usually ends up in flames for your reputation if done without tact, or your wallet seems to light on fire.

If you want to get out of the industry, company, trade, or half-way completed major you find yourself dawdling in, make a move, be smart, work hard, network like hell, and create that lateral or possibly vertical move towards doing what helps you thrive.

There are places out there who do really well at creating amazing culture for their employees. Don’t want to work for someone else? Great! Go make it happen yourself.

Life is too short to give 40–100 hours a week to something that robs your joy from the family you come home to and dump it on.

It’s simply not worth it.

Stop bitching — start hustling, and stay hungry until it happens.
