How to Work At A Job That You Hate and Still Do Good Work
The weekend is over. Monday morning always seems to come faster than you're ready for. Now, here it is and you're dragging yourself in for another week of work at a place that you really don't want to be. But, what can you do? You have bills to pay and for what it's worth, a lifestyle to maintain. You feel trapped.
Now think back, why did you apply for the job that you're in? Did you just need a job or were you looking for a career? How did you feel when you were accepted? Were you happy or indifferent? So, what has happened to change the positive or even indifferent feelings to negatives feelings?
For most people, getting a job is a great feeling. There is a feeling of accomplishment; a feeling of worth. It is the belief that someone thought that I could do the job and is giving me a chance. Your self esteem is running high and you don't want to let your boss down.
But something happened and all you want now is to get out. However, before you can do anything constructive that will last, you have to know a little about who you are and why you do what you do. If you don't understand what drives you and why you make the decisions that you make, you will continue down the same path no matter where you work or what you do. Frustration and anger toward your current situation in life will be always be with you until you know why; it's not as simple I just don't want to be here anymore or I just don't like what I'm doing.
It goes deeper than that. You make decisions for several different reasons. Those decisions put you into situations that work positively or negatively with who you are inside. Who you are inside determines what really drives you. If you made a decision to take a job that puts you in a secluded area working by yourself, even though you are an outgoing energetic person, you may be able to do it fine for a little while, but then you will get bored, frustrated and eventually angry. Likewise, if you took a job in sales and you know that you don't really like dealing with people you don't know, the same thing will happen.
Understanding why you are like you are can help you to overcome your current situation and start planning for a future that is more suitable to your inner drive.
