Falling Out of Love With Your Current Job?

February 14th, 2019

The relationship you have with your job is one of the most valuable and frequently the most neglected. When you begin to notice a lack of connection in personal relationships, you address the issues and work to make it better. When you get bored at your job, your typical response is to find reasons to be negative and look for something new.

 

Falling out of love with your current job can make the entire experience very taxing and cause you to think about greener pastures. Before you do, consider the following reasons for these feelings and how you can improve your experience without making a drastic decision.

 

You no longer like what you do

Maybe you started your position with a clear passion, but now you find it waning. You think of everything else you’d rather be doing than stuck in this job. Many things can cause these feelings, but it’s important to remember that perfection in employment is impossible.

 

Instead of focusing on your feelings of dislike, write down what is good about your job, whether it’s the culture, impact or people. Focus on the good and let it push away everything else. What you’re feeling will likely carry through to future jobs because the issue isn’t what you do.

 

You get bored

Starting a job is exciting and with so many things to learn, you’re sure you’ll never know it all. Then eventually you do, and suddenly, every day feels like you’re doing the same things over and over again.

 

Instead of wallowing in your monotonous work, try asking your supervisor for additional responsibilities. Set your mind on learning new things, even if they aren’t directly related to your position. This will help you keep the excitement going.

 

You don’t like your boss

Many a worker has left a job because of their boss, but they shouldn’t always be the reason you say goodbye. If you like what you do, exert the extra effort to provide them what they ask, as long as it doesn’t put you in a questionable position ethically or professionally.

 

Learning to work with your boss is one of the best ways to fall back in love with your job instead of letting someone ruin your relationship. If the situation is too toxic and you know you need a new solution, consider working with Staffing Resources.
