Is Your Job Enough for You?

Cosmopolitan Middle East - - YOU! - –JES­SICA GOOD­MAN

Are you ever em­bar­rassed by your work per­for­mance?

YES NO

Have you been con­sis­tently mis­er­able in your po­si­tion for more than two months?

YES NO

Do you have what you thought would be your dream job but feel to­tally un­ful­filled?

YES NO

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.
