You can step up.But you also have other options. You can do all sorts of things to improve your current situation. Let’s take a look at 3 signals that indicate that you’re in the wrong job, and what you can do to deal with it without you (right away) resign.
You’re actively looking for distractions at work
If you are constantly looking for distractions at work (especially when no one is watching), and you prefer to spend your time doing so than doing meaningful work, you are in the wrong job.
What can you do without going away?Focus on the responsibilities in your current job: Why aren’t you interested?You may experience too little challenge, you will learn nothingnew, or you are ready for another projectand some change.Take a look Around if you don’t find new challenges or projects in your team and find at least three new exciting areas where you can contribute.Join your supervisor to make suggestions on how you can improve your productivity and contribution to the organization by tackling something new.Share what you found and ask if they can adjust your current tasks.
2.You don’t want to have anything to do with your colleagues
The dynamism in a team is a key factor for how you feel at work.And people are not always well matched. Whether it is their personality, or the way they treat you, be assured that you can changeit.Then decide what it takes for you to feel good at work.
Then you can make a simple proposal to your supervisor about who you prefer to collaborate with, and how you can avoid collaboration with those people who have a negative impact on your productivity.Make the proposal so that you bring the problem to the attention while also proposing a solutionat the same time.The task of your supervisor is to keep peace in the team while everyone remains productive and happy. You can help with your proposal.
3.You just do it for the money
There is nothing wrong with earning money.But if you only work for the money, then you are in the wrong job.
Therefore, do this simple exercise: ask yourself what you would like to do the rest of your life unpaid.Free and for nothing. Write and keep writing until you find the answer. That is your passion.You wouldn’t do that work just for the money. And knowing what that passion is, can help you to pave the path in that direction, even though you are retaining your current job today.
And now you: are you a victim of your working conditions or do you want to take action and ask some changes to make your job better tomorrow?
