90,000!

Would you go to your current job if you didn’t get paid? How you answer that question may reveal important insights into how your job affects your long-term happiness. Over a lifetime, workers spend an average of 90,000 hours on the job.

That’s the number of hours that the majority of the people in the United Kingdom in full-time employment (about 45 to 50 hours per week over 40 years) will probably spend at work (and this includes the 40 hours spent commuting to and from work). In some parts of the world it maybe more.

Do you ever wonder if giving 90,000 hours of your life to employment can be justified in light to what is important?

Is work important?

Does work make you happy?

Are you happy? 🙂
