After a while, our job becomes a source of boredom.
For many, liking our job more means doing work that is either meaningful, challenging, or both.
Following these hacks can help you find more meaning and enjoyment in your career and life:
#1 Turn negative energy into positive initiatives
Do you find specific things, like a co-worker who doesn’t pull her weight, a drag?
Acknowledge your feelings and look for ways to improve the situation.
Once you’ve noted everything wrong, list the desired outcome and ways to achieve it
#2 Fill yourself up
Self-care - including eating right and getting enough sleep - is key to fighting burnout.
Track your time and cut back on nonessentials that don’t boost your mood, like volunteer work you no longer enjoy or endlessly scrolling through Instagram.
#3 Develop the right daily routine
You’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t have an organized plan for your workflow.
Change your daily routine to align with your goals and aspirations and watch everything else start to fall into place.
#4 Find ways to feel your work is meaningful
If your work isn’t inherently meaningful, find purpose in it anyway.
Answering phones in a call center? Think of it as making customers’ lives better.
Making job tasks more important to your organization also makes work feel more meaningful.
#5 Consider whether the grass is really greener
If you’re still finding yourself frustrated, it may be time to do a job search.
Maybe you’ll end up finding a great job to switch to or use the offer as leverage for a promotion or raise.
A higher salary can do wonders for your motivation and job satisfaction.
