From the great Seth Godin:
NOTE: Just before you read this, let me be clear. I loved my last employer for all the teachings it gave and the wonderful connections I made. It was just really cool that this came at a time when I was ready for a change to focus on things that mattered more to me.
Every day is an investment
You're not lucky to have this job, they're lucky to have you. Every day, you invest a little bit of yourself into your work, and one of the biggest choices available to you is where you'll be making that investment.
That project that you're working on, or that boss you report to... worth it?
Investing in the wrong place for a week or a month won't kill you. But spending ten years contributing to something that you don't care about, or working with someone who doesn't care about you... you can do better.
What you focus on expands, doesn't it?
This was serendipitous.
