Figuring out why you don't enjoy your work

Figuring out why you don't enjoy your work

It can be hard to figure why a formerly fun job turns dull. Maybe your role no longer excites you, maybe you’ve outgrown it, or your responsibilities have changed and now fail to bring you joy.

Packing up and leaving may feel like the obvious option, but it’s not the only option. If you don’t particularly like your organization or your manager, then yes, you should probably follow your gut. On the other hand, if you’ve found an organization that values you and your contributions, provides you with opportunities to learn and grow, and has a culture in which you can thrive, then wait.

If you’re looking to evolve your current role…

You love your manager, your team members, and your job. But lately, you’re on autopilot, and ready to take on a new challenge.  Acquiring new skills is one way to push past the stagnation you may be feeling.

Try voicing your desires to your boss, whether you’re interested in taking on a new project, picking up additional responsibilities, participating in a workshop or class to expand your expertise, or attending a conference the will add value to your current role.

If you’re looking to take on a new role in the organization…

Maybe you’ve outgrown your current team and are looking to make a more substantial change within the organization.

  • To get started, you’ll want to understand what career paths are possible for you internally. Make a list of people or job functions across the company that you’re curious about.
  • If there are jobs that especially pique your interest, reach out to colleagues in those positions for an informational interview.

If you’re looking for more flexibility…

As you consider what you’re looking for, you may find that it is not the work itself that you are unsatisfied with. Perhaps the parameters of the job are dragging you down, and you need a more flexible arrangement in terms of job location or hours.

When you approach your manager about this, speak openly about what your goals and needs are, but also be sure to tie your needs back to the needs of the organization. Give examples of how you can better contribute to your team if you are able to work within your preferred location and circumstances.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
