We all go through the phase of ‘not enjoying our work’ at some point in career. Whether right after landing your first job or 20 years into a career, you may realize that you should be making moves to get to the place you’d rather be. At the same time, quitting a job, especially a secure and well-paid one, is not always a viable option for everyone.
If you are unhappy with your current job, here are some techniques that may help you cope with a less-than-ideal job.
Get Some Perspective
Reset your perspective about your job and career. Remember that even if you don’t like your current job, it’s not a waste. Think about the possibilities that your current job offers to capitalize on them for future growth and development. Also, consider how your current experience can be leveraged for future opportunities.
Additionally, readjust your short and long term professional goals to plan and make the right career move at the right time.
Change What You Can and Accept the Unchangeable
Give suggestions and ideas to bring about changes to the working environment. Most dynamic organizations embrace the value of individual differences, and thus respond positively to ideas that could improve work culture.
That being said, not all organizations or workplaces are flexible enough to permit changes. If your workplace is intolerant of changes, the quickest fix to your frustration is to accept it. Consider ways to tolerate your workplace conditions within whatever limits are imposed on you. Try some motivational techniques to make your work less exasperating.
Remember that it is not just about workplace, but your attitude towards it. Therefore, make an effort to change your attitude towards things that can’t be changed to make your work enjoyable and less stressful.
Strike a Balance
Small, strategic changes to create a balance between your personal and professional life can make a big difference. Sometimes, it is not the work that frustrates you, but the fact that it’s consuming your life. In such a case, it’s a good idea to make certain changes rather than finding a new job and ending up in the same situation all over again.
