Why You Are Doing Things That You Don’t Like?

Do You Know What You Don’t Like?

How many people actually don’t know what they don’t like? I believe it is almost non. Most of the people know what they don’t like but sometimes it is ironic that even though they knew what they don’t like, they still choose to do it.

Recently I had a talk with my friends over a cup of coffee and we are discussing about the topic related to having a job. Then suddenly an idea hit me and I am thinking that why are there people who hate what they are doing but chose not to do something about it?

One of my friends always complained to me how bad her job is and what she don’t like about the job and the constant whining definitely drives me mad. I find that the situation is a simple one, if you don’t like what you are doing, then stop doing it. Doesn’t it make sense?

Let us look at an example; let say if you do not like to eat carrots then most probably you will not choose dishes with carrots because you simply do not like it. However the situation becomes complicated when you tell someone who hate their job to stop what they are doing. They will rebuke you with lots of reasons or excuses such as they are too old, they have to feed their family or they have to pay their school fees. I’m not saying that these reasons are not valid, these reasons are important and we need to consider and make plans for it before quitting. But instead of constantly spending your energy to generate reasons, isn’t it better if you can focus that energy on trying to find opportunities instead?

You tend to find this cycle in people who hate what they are doing but chose to do it anyway.


This is a cycle that will make them miserable as long as they stay doing what they hate to be doing.

How To Get Rid Of The Miserable Cycle

In order to get rid of being miserable and causing others around you to become miserable too, you will need to take responsibility for your own life. If you do not like your job then stop doing it. If you choose not to quit it, then stop complaining because it is your choice that you want to continue doing what you are doing.

However if you really decide that enough is enough and you want out of what you hate doing, then have a plan and make it happen instead of rebuking others with reasons of why you cannot quit your job. Operate from a positive mindset to generate ideas on how to quit your job instead of thinking of reasons to argue with others why you cannot quit your job will definitely be more beneficial instead.

If you operate from a positive mindset instead of a negative one, you can generate ideas that can help you stop doing what you hate to be doing and start doing something that you love. You can save an  amount of money that can last you for months so that you can quit your job and start to work on something that you want to be doing. Or start something on the side line before quitting or maybe even quit your job and get a part time job so that you have time to work on what you really want to be doing.

There are lots of possibilities so don’t limit yourself by operating in the wrong frame of mind. As what Henry Ford says, “If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.”

Parting Words

What I want to drive home in this article is that I want people to be live more consciously. Stop doing something that you know you obviously hate. If you hate your job, find another that you love, or maybe you just hate the term J-O-B, then go start your own business. Whining, complaining and seeking sympathy from others then rebuking them with reasons of why you cannot stop doing what you hate to be doing doesn’t help at all. The only way to help yourself is to start taking responsibility for your own life and the desired changes.

To your success,

    Wow! I really really love your article,in fact I have read it a number of times. I am a CPA by profession and have served the industry for more than 25 years now. A month ago until now, I have been suffering from BURNOUT. I have read a lot of articles about the topic and finally, I have come into the conclusion that I am a victim. Reading your article gave me a sense of relief from the guilt. I felt bad when I felt that I have totally lost intererst on finance and accounting matters. Now, I realized that it is high time to shift career. I am a gym buff and have been coaching a number of gym goers out of passion. Now I know where to go…Thanks a lot and hope you drop me a line…..

      Hi bolz,

      I’m glad that you had finally discovered your real passion. Nothing beats working in something that you love. Go for it! 🙂

    I think the core of what you’re saying rings true, but keep in mind that it is a bit idealistic. It’s hard to quit a job that you hate when you’re living hand to mouth.

  3. I am not sure that I “hate” my business, but I am definitely bored with it so it is time to move on. I have made the commitment to give it up and move to a new country within a year, but it wasn’t an easy decision to make.

    First of all, I have long term customers that have supported me when I didn’t really know what I was doing. Giving up my company, in some ways is letting them down. The problem is worse because I am living in Japan, where relationships are so important.

    Also, I am almost 40 years old. Starting over is much more difficult than if I were in my 20s when I first left to Japan. Quitting when you have nothing to lose is not much of a sacrifice.

    Another thing is that I am giving up a great secure income with lots of holidays and few work hours. If it was a lousy job with bad hours, I would have quit long ago. It would have been easy to quit. However, it is not so easy now.

    Quitting a job is not easy, but if there is any advice that I can offer it is that, quitting gets harder the longer you wait. The best time to do anything is now.

    Hi Helen,

    It is great that you write down what you want to achieve in the near future and use what you have to do now as a stepping stone towards your future achievement. It is a good strategy. 🙂

    Hi Car insurance guy,

    That is what happen when you don’t change and allow others to cause you to make changes. However it is something good for him because he finally got away from the job that he hate. 🙂


  6. A friend of mine worked a job he hated. He couldn’t get himself to quit though, and was always miserable. Due to the economy his company tanked, and now he’s living it up. Have to force change.

    I miss some words,sorry. ” Because it seems that I choose to do the things I have to do owing to the benefits it may brings to me.

  8. helen says:

    Sometimes, I am at loss between the things I really like to do and the things I have to do. Because it seems that the things I have to do owing to the benefits it may bring to me.Therefore I am doing and willing to do the things I have to do now. And as longs as I started it, I am more inclined to stick to it, cos I am used to it . I also thought about this topic before,and my attitude towards it is to love what I have to do and write down what I want to achieve in the near future.

    Hi Vic,

    Thanks for your compliments. It is great to see that you enjoyed this article. 🙂

    Hi Dani,

    I agree that balance is needed and not that everything that we hate to do can be avoided. But as what you had said, significant things like having a job that we dislike is something that we definitely need to stop doing. Thanks for the point. 🙂

    Hi Cash Back,

    People who are held back by fear is not going to achieve what they really want to achieve. I understand that it is hard to get out of our comfort zone but sometimes taking the leap may prove to be rewarding. If taking a huge leap is daunting, taking baby steps will be a better way to go. As long as you keep working on towards what you want and do not give up half way, you will definitely reach your destination.


  10. Cash Back says:

    With a job, quitting is easier said than done. Most of us rely on our jobs even if we don’t like them. We don’t necessarily have the power to quit whenever something isn’t going right. Getting away from the things you don’t like in the job may mean getting new training in an all new field. Many people are afraid of this risk and would rather stay where they are somewhat comfortable.

  11. GREAT post. I feel like I have a hard time with this topic because I don’t want to do anything I don’t like to do (which I think is a good thing) but there are some things we have to do that we don’t want to (which makes me seem selfish when I don’t want to partake in them). As with most things, I think balance is key, but when it comes to the big things — jobs, significant others, etc. — I don’t think we should settle and just do something if we’re unhappy with it.

  12. Hi Vincent,
    A great article as I was expected. This is very timely specially for those persons who have not yet made the right decisions on their path to life. More power to you and to your blog.
