3 Telltale Signs You're On The Wrong Career Path | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

What to Do if This Is You


If you feel exhausted and bored all of the time, you need to figure out what exactly is doing the damage by breaking your job down into different components. Which aspect is most draining to you? Is it the subject matter that you’re working on? The long commute? Are your co-workers wearing you out? Getting specific about what’s not working will tell you exactly what it is you need to change.

Consider whether your dissatisfaction is core to the job itself, like your day-to-day work activities, or environmental, like annoying co-workers, an overly demanding boss or a lengthy commute. An environmental factor could be remedied with less extreme measures, like moving closer to work, seeking a different team to be a part of or even switching to a similar position with a different company. If it is the job itself that is draining your energy, that is a clear sign of a need for a change.
