What's your like/dislike ratio?

I know I said I’d put a blog yesterday, but we’re approaching the end of October and I still have some goals to cross off my list, so that took top priority. I did have some thoughts I’d like to share on work. I’ve met a lot of people recently that have found new jobs, are looking for new jobs, or are considering changing careers and I thought this might help out.

My mom once told me that the stuff you don’t like at your job shouldn’t outweigh the stuff you do. She said if it ever gets to where more than 40 percent of your job is stuff you don’t like, you might want to consider moving on. That's some wisdom from a Navy wife, who worked a lot of different jobs in a lot of different places, so I've always thought that little tidbit is a keeper. I frequently examine that ratio in my own work life, just to make sure it isn’t out of balance.

I don’t care what you do; everyone has parts of their job that they don’t like. Does the good outweigh the bad? Take a look at the ratios below and see where you fit in.
