If you feel like you’ve moved be­yond your learn­ing curve, try set­ting new work goals. “Chart out a new ca­reer path for your­self for the next one or two years, within the same depart­ment or com­pany. The more you have to work to­wards, the more mo­ti­vated and ex­cited you will feel in your job,” says Alka.

Mov­ing up the ranks within your com­pany may not be pos­si­ble, es­pe­cially if you’re al­ready in a se­nior po­si­tion. If that’s the case, Alka sug­gests set­ting goals that can help you move lat­er­ally. “Talk to your boss about trans­fer­ring to a dif­fer­ent depart­ment if there are other as­pects of the in­dus­try you are in­ter­ested in. You’d have dif­fer­ent re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and chal­lenges, and be on a whole new learn­ing curve. These changes will help drive you and get you ex­cited about the job again.” cur­rent du­ties. “Com­pile a list of your main re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and how you are car­ry­ing them out,” says Paul. “Then, think of ways to en­hance or even change how you do them.”

For ex­am­ple, in­stead of re­ly­ing on the same old meth­ods of bring­ing in sales rev­enue, ex­plore al­ter­na­tive strate­gies. “Per­haps you’ve al­ways achieved your sales tar­gets by speak­ing with clients over the phone or do­ing pre­sen­ta­tions at their of­fice. Switch things up by mak­ing these meet­ings more fun or more per­sonal,” Paul ex­plains.

“Turn your next sales pre­sen­ta­tion into a more chilled-out af­fair and bring in speak­ers who can help make the pre­sen­ta­tion more in­ter­est­ing. There are so many ways to ap­proach the task. And you might even bring in more rev­enue. More im­por­tantly, your job will start to be more en­joy­able as it feels new again,” he adds.
