There’s a famous saying which goes as such, “Find a job you love and you will never have to work a single day of your life.”
Sounds right, doesn’t it. Yet almost every other week, we find ourselves finding Monday blues, envying our friends’ lifestyle and finding yourself dissatisfied and unhappy. Contrary to popular belief, leaving your job and moving on might not be as difficult as decision as believed. It all boils down to whether or not you’re happy and craving for more. Here are a few signs to tell if you like or work or if you need out.
You talk about your work: If you find yourself talking about work often and in a good way, it means you are in a good place. If talking about your job makes you happy and you often find your conversations going back to what happened at work through the day or how you’re looking forward to a certain office event, you don’t have much to worry about. Despite a few pitfalls, work is something you enjoy and makes you happy.
You love the work: You might hate the rigmarole of getting up in the morning and going to work and working till late. You might not particularly like the company of some people or even your boss. However, despite everything, you love your work. The thought of working on a new assignment excites you and you find yourself recommending your profession to others or talking about it eagerly, these are all positive indicators towards your love for your job.
You want more out of work: You worked hard throughout your school and college days to get that dream job and you find yourself consumed in trying to pursue excellence. You often find yourself wanting more and craving more. With every promotion or growth in your field you are driven to work harder and are often deemed a ‘workaholic’ by your friends and family. These are sure indicators towards your love for your job.
You don’t loathe Monday mornings: You might not particularly love the end of the weekend, but the start of another week doesn’t necessarily depress you. After the weekend, you actually feel refreshed and revitalized and look forward to the coming week or work. Loving work meetings and other social events is also a positive factor in your professional life.
