How To Fall In Love With The Job You Have
Are you feeling a little down in the dumps lately when it comes to your 9-5?
Maybe it’s an annoying coworker. Maybe you’re just uninspired by the work.
Whatever the case may be, you might be experiencing the dreaded work rut. And it can seem like it will never end.
You might even be scanning LinkedIn for new jobs.
But, before you send in your two weeks notice, take a moment to reflect. Chances are, there was a time when you were psyched out of your mind to start this job, right?
Even if you’re just punching the clock to pay the bills, who says you can’t fall in love with the job you have right now?
Unless you’re in a truly toxic situation (in which case, you have permission to get the heck out of there), it’s possible to feel passionate about your job again.
I can tell you right now, the solution is not always to go on to the “next best thing.” The grass is greener where you water it, ladies!
I found an article with some amazing tips to get the fire back. I had to share it with you all.
As always, here are three digestible steps you can take right now to fall in love with the job you have.
- Visualize. Focus on three question: what is your ideal workplace? What aspects does it entail? How can your current workplace bring this vision to life?
- Ask. Just like in a salary negotiation, ask for what you want. Remember, if you don’t, the answer is always no.
- Change. Focus on what you can control. You can’t change an annoying coworker, but you can decide to shift how you respond to their antics
