Do you know your job’s hidden fees?

Every job is a transaction. Your work in exchange for a paycheck, benefits and, hopefully, a meaningful assignment. But every job also extracts hidden fees—hidden only our inattention to their presence.

Do you know your job's hidden fees?


In this week’s episode of the Reinventure Me podcast, my co-host, Armin Assadi and I discuss three hidden fees that you and I pay when we work:

  • The availability fee which keep us ever at the ready to respond to work demands.
  • The creativity fee which limits our thinking through environmental conditioning.
  • The income fee which keeps us from considering alternatives that may better aligned with our skills and interests

Left unchecked, each of these fees take a toll on our vitality and can make us more prone to fatigue, anger, resentment and a sense of hopelessness about our future.

We explain each of these in the How to know your job’s hidden fees podcast. Take a listen, then comment on this post or the show notes and let us know your thoughts.

What steps have you taken to limit these fees in your life?
