I was watching a video this morning where a young man called his job “The Worst Job in the World.” (You can watch the video here.) It got me thinking about what is the worst job in the world and who has it.
Several years ago I read an article about a job that involved pulling a sheet through the jungle to collect ticks. That sounds like a possible “worst.” There is the Dirty Jobs show on television; those might apply. I’ll bet a lot people might classify their job, at times, as the worst.
What I liked about the video was that the young man acknowledged it is not a great job and decided he wanted to do something about it. He didn’t wait for others to do it for him. He and his peers made the job fun. They turned something boring into a performing art of sorts.
In the end I’ll bet we could all find a reason to classify our job at times as the worst. If you’re feeling that way what can you do or have you done to change it? I’d love to hear from you.
