Looking for more satisfaction in your career?
August 23, 2009
Are you looking for more fulfillment from your work? Do you wake up in the morning wishing you were anticipating the day ahead of you? Know that it is indeed possible to enjoy your work, to love what you are doing and to be energized by the very doing of it.
Suggestion: start by looking at yourself. Take a sheet of paper and divide it into 3 columns. For the first column, titled “Work,” make a list of the various jobs or work you have done — starting with your most recent job and working backwards. For the second column, titled “Likes,” write the things you liked about each job–across from that job. For the third column, titled “Dislikes,” write the things you did not like about each job, again across from that particular job. When you are finished, take a highlighter and note the things that show up repeatedly under Likes; and then the repeats under Dislikes. This will give you an idea of what you are wanting to have as well as wanting to avoid in your next career. Be aware that you may find what you are looking for in the same career field but in a different employment situation. Or you may be looking for a new field.
