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.
