Is your job toxic?

Have you wanted to put into perspective if your job is toxic and taxing? Ramit Sethi put out a survey and this is what he had to say :

Yesterday, I showed hundreds of thousands of you how to find out if you’re underpaid. You’d be surprised how often it’s not good news.

If you’re underpaid — if you work hard, deliver results, and aren’t paid what you’re worth — don’t worry. I’ll show you some techniques for fixing this in an upcoming email — including how one student of mine landed an $80,000 raise. Not a typo. Of course, being paid too little is just one sign of a bad job.

There’s the “Sunday Scaries” — the feeling in the pit of your stomach every Sunday evening as you start to think about going into work for the next week.

There’s the toxic coworker — sometimes openly toxic, or more commonly just someone who’s subtly abrasive, condescending, or irritating.

And finally, there’s the hopeless feeling of being “stuck.” Of knowing you were meant to do something meaningful, but not knowing where to start…but knowing it’s not this.

I’ve spent 10+ years talking to hundreds of thousands of people about their Dream Jobs. And I’ve distilled all of the big problems down to just 9 signs your job may be toxic.

So I took the survey and you can too can here to help determine if your job is toxic.
Interestingly this email popped into my inbox after I resigned having working in a company for 26 years.

Without saying too much, head on over to Ramit Sethi’s site to clear the cobwebs. His emails are interesting (he says he reads everyone of them) and his advice on money and our precious time is on point,
