SIMPLE WAYS TO LOVE YOUR CURRENT JOB EVEN IF YOU DON'T LIKE IT AT THE MOMENT

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do." -  Quote by Steve Jobs.

How many of us are unhappy in our current professions and roles? How many of us are lucky to break away and dive into new careers & avenues? Well not all of us as everyone has their own set of issues and challenges. This blog is for those who wish to make a difference and better themselves in their current profiles / assignments.

Here are some simple ways for you to love your current job: 

  • Set your goals / targets in current profile in discussion with your manager / leader or company owner. If a person does not have a purpose or a goal to work towards, boredom and disenchantment may set in. This is certainly not advisable. Achieving these goals will not only give you a personal high but also open up new avenues within and outside the company. This could be promotion or salary hike or different profile etc 

  • Make a list of aspects of your current profile which could do with improvement. No one is perfect and everyone has rough edges which need polishing. This is nothing to be ashamed of. Once you have established the issues then comes solution finding, on your own, with your supervisor, and even with your departmental colleagues. 

  • Identify what you love doing. It could be a profile or tasks. For example, Ravinder enjoys interacting with people & giving presentations, whereas he is stuck in Accounts. So, a misfit, wouldn’t you say? He would make a perfect fit for his company’s marketing or soft skills department. By talking to his boss, he could ask for a transfer or try and incorporate some of his passions & loves into his current profile. Worse comes to worst, he can reskill and look for new opportunities based on his interests and love. 

  • Get assistance from others. If you are upset, stressed, overburdened in your current profile or with the workload, express it. Get help and see if it can be reduced to realistic levels. See if the office can assist with a delegation of work to others, schedule assignments to enable a balanced workload, or get access to resources (such as training, etc) to make everything manageable.  

  • Expand your professional network both within and outside the organisation. LinkedIn is a great professional social media channel. Plus attending seminars and conferences help too. You never know when networking pays off, today or tomorrow. 

  • Be focused. Stay away from distractions, be it colleagues, social media, or domestic chores at home. Staying in the present which means mindfulness allows for clarity and concentration. This will help you to give your best to York work and start enjoying its subtle nuances. It could even make an impression among your company management. 

  • Gratitude list. Just like people keep gratitude lists in their personal lives, start doing the same for your professional life. It will give you new insights and appreciation. A difference in perception will lead to “loving” your current profile.
