Is Your Job Enough for You?
Are you ever embarrassed by your work performance?
Have you been consistently miserable in your position for more than two months?
Do you have what you thought would be your dream job but feel totally unfulfilled?
If you answered mostly yes, you may be frustrated with your current gig or need a career refresh that aligns with your definition of success. Think about pivoting to a new industry. “Find a job that utilises your strengths and you’ll be more likely to be happy,” says Sara Bliss, author of Take the Leap.
If you answered mostly no, you seem to know what kind of work sitch fits your preferred lifestyle. Continue checking in with your priorities every few months. “Reflect on your choices to decide if you’re still satisfied,” says
Alison Green, author of Ask a Manager.
