How to Like Your Job? (Cont’d)
If you are feeling a tad bored at work and unmotivated this can be for a number of reasons. The first thing to do is ask yourself, “Why am I bored and unmotivated?” It might be because you have outgrown the job, are bored with the routine or not getting the appropriate feedback you need. A tip to conquer this is to look around at work and see what things need fixing? then go about doing it. Not only will you be seen as taking initiative but also you will feel excited about tackling a new responsibility.Get a hold of your life outside of the office
It’s not abnormal to have your personal life come into the office. You have to recognize this as a temporary situation and that you have to get a hold of it. The best bit of advice I was given was to talk to my manager to see if there were ways I could re-prioritise to get my job done and stay sane. Ask your support systems and don’t try to be a martyr. Only makes your life harder.
Deal with office politics
Keep above the politics. Stay focused on the goals of your job and your projects. Remember you are a professional and don’t get sucked into coffee shop bitching. Never gossip about the people you don’t like to anyone at work. There is no point putting your energy into the people you dislike at work.
