You dread getting up in the mornings for work. You count down the hours until you can leave. You no longer enjoy what you do. You have a countdown of the days until the next holiday when the office is closed.If this is true for you, then you need to wake up and re-assess what you are doing. You need to decide if you need to move on, because what you are doing to yourself is not right and what you are doing to your employer is not good. When an employer hires you, they expect all that you can do for them while at work. If you are not giving them all of your attention and all of your effort, you are cheating them and you are cheating yourself.
Evaluate what you do. Do you enjoy the work you do, but it has become monotonous? If you went somewhere else, would you enjoy what you do more? But if you enjoy where you work, look at other job openings and see if you can transfer over to that. Speak with your supervisor if you are able about your situation. Speak with your family and friends and see if they know of any job openings and to get their input.
Maybe you want to completely change what you do and try something different? If this is the route you want to go, it is not too late to change careers. More and more people are returning to school for further training and to further their education. But remember that each occupation comes with good factors and bad problems. It is not all roses. But if you feel that you would enjoy it more, your enjoyment could help offset the bad.
If you realize that you are stuck at where you are and you cannot leave, even though you have looked at your situation from all angles, you need to make the best of your situation. Make plans to leave at a later time, if you can. But you need to change yourself and your attitude in the meantime. Put a smile on your face. Work up the energy to have a positive attitude. Tell yourself that you enjoy what you do and where you work. Who knows, you may eventually believe in what you tell yourself and learn to enjoy your job again.
