Is it time to move on? If you have fallen out of love with your job then maybe it is.
As the saying goes “Better the devil you know” but is that true when it comes to your career? If you are fearful of change that is understandable but are you holding yourself back from fulfilling your true potential?
It’s unlikely that leaving a job is going to be a decision taken lightly but you need to ask yourself are you happy in your current role? If you dream of something else what’s stopping you? If you are at a career crossroads here’s some things to consider:
• Is the problem with the role you do or the career you have?
• Is it the company you work for or the team you are part of?
• Do you love your job?
• Is fear of the unknown holding you back?
• How does your job benefit you?
• Knowing what you know now would you apply for your current job?
• What’s important to you? Salary, work life balance etc. Does your current job satisfy these things?
Can you do anything to improve the current situation? If that’s a yes great! Take action to address your concerns and see what changes can be made. This might be speaking to your boss, changing departments, reducing your hours etc.
We have all been through changes in life that made us fearful or unsure of how it might turn out, leaving a job or changing careers for most will be the same too but the fear of change may be holding you back from achieving all sorts of other wonderful things and staying in a job you dislike can do more harm than good, discovering new talents and what you enjoy is an exciting new step towards discovering your potential.
