Everybody knows that after some time of stereotype work can become boring and productivity goes down. You can get even disgusted with your job. (Sometimes we see only the negative things, not that positive one.)
Every coin has two sides: there are positives and negatives of every job. Often it's sufficient to talk to somebody with a positive approach to life, or to read motivation books, and you can have better approach to your job again. It's an issue of approach: when I repeat to myself how bad my job is, I won't be in a good mood to go there and to be productive. But when I remember the reasons why I applied for that job, and what is positive about it, I can once again be in a good mood, satisfied and motivated to be more productive.
Some people can change jobs all the time and they won't be happy anywhere.
Sometimes it is because of things we repeat in our head, like:
- I hate my job
- 8 hours of sitting again
- everybody wants something from me all the time
- I have to try to solve that boring issue, it would waste my time...
- I like my job, I like computing - this is why I studied it, and I want to show my knowledge
- I can make my job comfortable, sitting down in a warm room, after work I'll go play a sport
- It is exciting, everybody comes to me to ask questions, I can help others, it is great
- I will definitely solve that issue today
- I look forward to talking with my colleagues, they have great ideas
But in some cases, I can have a job which really does not suit me. And the best thing would be to change my job, not just try to change my approach.
When is it time to change the job, and when is it sufficient to only change the approach? How to find the border between these two cases?
