    Whether it is a boss who is borderline psycho (OK, hands in the air – who’s had one of those?), a company which doesn’t show its appreciation for your hard work, a co-worker who barely deserves the right to be called a “worker” or the conditions or functions of  your work sucking, there are ways you can be happier at work.

    In a nutshell, you’ve got two options. You can either change your circumstances or change you.

    Let’s address the first option.

    Change your circumstances:

    1 – Follow your passion.

    Take 30 quiet minutes away from distractions (I know it may be tough, but figure it out) and do some blue-sky thinking. Temporarily set aside continue »

    "Your money or your life!" demands the classic TV robber as he presses the nose of a pistol into the unsuspecting victim's back.

    We chew our popcorn more slowly and wait with baited breath, anxious to see what the victim decides. Will she reach into her purse and hand over her cash? Or will she hang on to her money, kick the thief in the nuts and risk sacrificing her life?

    If the show is a comedy, you know she's going for the cojones and high-tailing it out of there. But let's imagine this isn't a comedy. As a matter of fact, let's imagine this is real life.

    Smart, genuine, caring, educated, and loyal. Oh, and did I mention funny and adorable? This girl seriously has her act together. If anyone has the world by the balls it's her. Except how did she find herself in the position of asking me “I feel stuck at my job. Everyone else always take the credit for what I do. I feel so unappreciated and unfulfilled. I feel like my time is being wasted. Help. What can I do?”? If a girl with this much going for her feels stuck, are the rest of us screwed?
