Find the Right Amount of Challenge.
Every job presents challenges. Some challenges are physical. You may need to move, bend, lift, and carry. You may be on your feet for hours at a time. To overcome these challenges, you need strength and stamina.
Some challenges are mental. You may be asked to make decisions about the best way to do a job or the next step to take to get the work done.
Some challenges are social. You will need to be polite and fair as you greet the public and work with supervisors and fellow workers.
Finding a job with the right amount and right kinds of challenges will help you find satisfaction in your work.
