Why Desk Jobs Aren’t for Everyone

For many people, work means going to an office and sitting behind a desk for eight hours a day. But who says that careers must look like that? There are many different ways to make a living, and while desk jobs are perfect for some people, they are the worst possible fit for others. Life is too short to be miserable behind a desk when you’d rather be having other experiences, like making a living behind the wheel on the road as a truck driver. If you doubt whether it’s really OK to give up on the vision of a desk job, here are some reasons they just aren’t right for everyone.

Sitting in the same space all day makes some people less productive.

Some people do their best work when they are sitting at their desks in a quiet office, typing on their computers or digging through paperwork. That is where they achieve their best concentration levels and feel inspired to do their best work. Other people simply can’t concentrate in that environment. The same four walls, the same seat and computer screen, and quiet surroundings make them feel fatigued, bored, and frustrated. If that sounds like you, being in a truck with ever-changing scenery is the key to getting the most out of your productivity.

9-5 schedules don’t work with everyone’s body clocks.

Desk jobs usually come with regimented working hours that mean you work a traditional 9-5 schedule. An increasing body of research shows that not everyone is programmed to follow this typical schedule. Maybe you do your best work in the early morning hours, or maybe you want more flexibility to be home with your family during specific times of the year. Truck driving requires sticking to a delivery schedule, but you have a far-reaching ability to make your schedule adapt to your needs, instead of the other way around.

Of course, another reason that desk jobs aren’t for everyone is that some people simply hate the office environment.
