5 Ways to Enjoy Your Work
October 29, 2015
How do you feel about your work? Are you fulfilled and enthusiastic about waking up and going to the office every day, or considering switching careers so you can do work you love?
You have two options:
A. Learn to love the work you have.
B. Find new work you love.
Either way, we’ve got some great tips to help you thrive in your workplace.
Don’t let another year go by without taking the next step in creating the career of your dreams!
Here are five ways to love your work:
1. Express gratitude. Writing down or saying out loud why you’re thankful for your job will help foster an abundant mindset, which increases your satisfaction and productivity. Consciously appreciating everything you have also helps naturally attract your dream career.
2. Create goals. If there’s anything in your career you’d like to change or improve, set a clear goal and take action towards it. Plan it out and schedule all your action steps in your calendar. Your circumstances are more likely to shift if you’re proactive in creating what you want.
3. Communicate. Whether it’s speaking up to ask for a promotion, practicing the art of listening, or developing your unique creative style, communication is key to success. You can’t get what you want unless you ask for it.
4. Personalize your environment. Since you spend a great deal of time in your workspace, it’s important to make it comfortable. Having plants, photos of loved ones, and your favorite teas and snacks can go a long way in reducing stress and making you feel more at home.
5. Grow. It helps a ton to view every experience as an opportunity to learn and expand your knowledge. How can this apply to you? Does it involve taking a weekend course to learn a new skill, making a change in your approach to certain projects, or reaching out for support? Be open to change, even if this means leaving a career you’ve invested a lot of time in to start something new.
