Steps to take if you no longer love your job
Everyone wants a job they love. I’m sure no one has ever said, “I want to spend 40+ hours of doing work I hate” or “I just want to feel mediocre about my career.” Unfortunately, finding a job that you’re passionate about or maintaining your zeal for a job you once loved isn’t easy. A survey of American workers by Ipsos, a global market research company, found that only 55 percent of U.S. employees say they love their jobs.
If that unhappy employee is a manager or an executive, or you(!) the negative implications could be far reaching. But, it’s not all bad news. If you no longer love your work, there are several steps you can take to help turn your relationship with your job around.
Check your perspective. Every situation can look different, depending on your perspective. So, take a step back and consider how you’re looking at your job. Is your job fulfilling a need or a want? Is it just a job? Is it a career with the goal of advancement? Do you see your job as a calling, where you focus on the sense of fulfillment the work gives you? An article from the Mayo Clinic, a nonprofit medical care, research and education organization, points out that none of these three choices are bad, and most people actually find aspects of all of them to be true in their current work situations. To help revive your job satisfaction, try to remember why you took this job in the first place.
