You can't say 100% about many things. It's so definite. Final.
100% of water is wet.
100% of the sun is bright.
100% of bacon is delicious (except turkey bacon, so I guess 99% of bacon...).
Here's a 100-percenter you can bank on:
100% of career dissatisfaction comes from values incongruence.
If you're not satisfied with what you're doing, it's because what you expected it to be and what it is are two different things -- they're incongruent. You have a set of values -- core beliefs -- that are so much a part of who you are that they drive every decision you make. And when those values are disregarded, trampled on, ignored, or threatened the result is dissatisfaction.
I meet with lots of career coaching clients who are dissatisfied with what they are doing and the answer, 100% of the time, is to diagnose what about their currently reality is misaligned with what they thought it would be.
Save yourself the headache of jumping jobs and looking around for something that's more satisfying and start by getting crystal clear about what in your current reality is incongruent.
HINT: It's not only values, but also talents that are dormant or environments that are misaligned.
