Many of us “reward” ourselves after a tough day. Maybe it’s a few drinks after work with our coworkers. Maybe it’s some online shopping.
If your anxiety and dread slowly begins to dominate your entire weekend, you need to consider a big change.
If you feel you’re stuck at a dead end, with no further goals worth pursuing, this is an excellent reason to try something new.
If there’s nothing appealing about your job, and the only reason you clock in at work every day is to get the money, this is a clear-cut sign to consider a career change.
A strong sign that it’s time to change careers is that you’ve stopped caring. Maybe you’ve started showing up a bit later each day, or taking longer lunches.
Often, your body will tell you something is really wrong at work before your mind is ready to face it. Maybe you’ve noticed that you feel tired all the time.
One of the main components of job satisfaction is feeling that you’re contributing something of value, and that you’re improving and developing in your current role.
When you feel unmotivated, undervalued and unsuccessful at work, it can bleed over into the rest of your life.
Maybe you love being creative and trying new things but your job requires almost robotic repetition and adherence to strict guidelines.
Whatever got you to this point, if your workday regularly includes daydreaming about the career that you wish you had, it’s time to make that dream a reality.
