After 30 plus years in the work force as a lawyer, manager, executive, and entrepreneur in multiple geographic environments and in all sizes of companies from start-up to Fortune 100, I believe I have heard nearly every type of complaint about a job. And if you reflect on listening to your friends, you will find some of your conversations, maybe a lot, are about your job or their job. And further, when you listen to your own “self talk” you talk about your job a lot. But if you are like most of us, there is little or no resolution to their talk or your self talk about your job. Instead it ends up just as part of the experience of getting together and sharing beer, wine, liquor and food. It lingers as whining and general dissatisfaction. I like to call these conversations about work “whining and dining.” The job issues are left on the table when we leave for the night and may bounce around in our heads while we sleep.
