Do you feel like you’re just going through the motions on the job?
Maybe you say or do things that go against your core values and you feel like you’d rather be anywhere else.
If you’re unhappy or struggling on the job, every day can be a challenge. It may be time to make a career change, or at least change your attitude on this job. Here are the three steps you can take to make a change for the best.
Try to Engage More with the Co-Workers You Like
Sometimes people can feel isolated at work or feel like they don’t fit in. But, changes are, you like at least one person you work with. Spend some time getting to know them specifically. Ask them to go to lunch with you and establish them as a true ally on the job. They can then become a confidant and a sounding board, but be careful not to complain too much. Also, be sure you don’t cross inappropriate boundaries when forming these friendships.
Approach Your Supervisor with an Idea to Change Your Direction
It is possible that a slight change of your job duties will give you some of the fire back. Talk to your supervisor about what makes you unhappy and see if there is anything that can be changed to put you back on the right path. If you can come to the table with a concrete idea, that is even better.
Take Some Time Off to Assess Your Needs and Goals
Lastly, it might be time to cash in on some of that vacation to see if it is the environment or the job or just your attitude that is making you struggle on the job. While you take some time off to focus on you, determine if you need to make a more drastic change to find the satisfaction that you’re craving. If so, you can come up with a plan to move forward with another potential option.
