The question comes up all the time:
“Should I leave my job?”
But that question misses a big part of the decision, which is:
“Can I fall back in love with my job?”
Because it’s likely that everything’s not broken in your life at work.
In my video below, I offer three ways you can fall back in love with your job right now.
It’s often worth trying these strategies before you break up with the work relationship you’re in.
So Scott wrote me and said, “Hey, Darcy, I used to really love my job. But not so much anymore.
Are there ways to fall back in love with my job? Or do I have to move on?”
Well, this is a great question. I think a lot of people are probably thinking about that right now.
But if you’ve fallen out of love with your job, there’s a couple things I want you to think about first, before you decide to look for a new one.
The first one is to make sure that you’ve created your own clarity.
What really is it that you used to love about your job? And what is it now that you’re not so fond of?
Getting clear about those things can help you discover whether it really is the job, or maybe it’s just one particular situation.
The second thing is to build your confidence.
What’s one of the things that you do really well? What are the things that you actually appreciate about the job right now?
When you feel more confident, you’re more likely to love the things that you’re doing.
And the last one is to take control.
If there’s something you’ve been wanting to ask for– a different type of responsibility in your job, or perhaps a different working situation–take control, and ask for it.
Sometimes we forget to ask for what we want, and we stop, we don’t take control. And those can be things that someone is more than willing to make a change for us.
That way we can fall back in love with our job again, and we don’t have to go looking for a new one.
