New year, new job, new you!
Written by Trevor Keidan on December 21, 2018.
How are you feeling about 2018 as it draws to a close? Has it been a good twelve months for you or are you thinking that 2019 might be a year to make some changes? The start of a brand new year is a great time for ‘out with the old, and in with the new’, which is, of course, why the tradition of New Year’s resolutions remains strong. I don’t know about you but amongst my friends there is already a lot of chat about what next year’s might be. For many of us it’s the same old chestnuts time after time:
Eat more healthily
Give up smoking
Yet by the time February comes along all good intentions are often already dead in the water and we settle back into the same old lifestyle. Apparently only 8% of us actually manage to keep our resolutions.
Why not shake it up this year and make a significant and lasting change? Happiness, wellbeing and mental health issues are big subjects right now and increasing numbers of us are suffering. If that is the case for you, could your job be the problem?
We spend a third of our lives at work and many of us are stuck in jobs which may pay the rent and put food on the table but do little else for our wellbeing. If you are counting down the days, hours and minutes until the weekend, it’s time to ask yourself why. If you struggle to get up in the mornings due to a lack of motivation, it is probably not just the weather and your commute getting you down, it may be the nature of your work.
Perhaps one of these common work frustrations chimes with you:
1. I’m bored
Do you feel stagnated in your career? Are you being challenged enough? If not, a change of environment could be just what you need.
2. My work/life balance is all wrong
Many people go through life feeling like hamsters stuck in a treadmill. If you never have time for yourself and every day rolls into another with no excitement or feeling of accomplishment, you’re certainly not alone, but it really doesn’t have to be like that. There is a whole world out there.
3. I have hit a glass ceiling
This is a frequent complaint for women and minorities in the workplace and is an indicator that it could be time to move on in your career to a company that isn’t going to discriminate and hold you back.
