Time to change your career?


Remember when you first started your career? Hopefully they are happy memories filled with the promise of a long fulfilling future.

But how do you feel about your career today? If the love is a distant memory it may be time to take a little action.

Is it time to break up? Here are six signs that you need to think about it seriously.

1. You dread going to work

Work dread often kicks in about 6pm on a Sunday. The weekend is not actually over but rather than enjoying a relaxing evening your mind is already twisting and turning about the work week starting again. Bad sign.

2. You are always complaining

This one could sting but the best way to get an honest gauge on it is to ask your nearest and dearest if you are driving them mad with complaints. If your work dialogue has become a big, long whinge they are going to be more than happy to fill you in on the change of tone.

3. You regularly make mistakes

Mistakes, particularly small mistakes, are a red flashing light that your mind is wandering. Have a think back over the last few months. How many times did you have a mistake pointed out that you were amazed you even made in the first place? If it happens regularly it may be that your mind is drifting a little more than is healthy in a happy career.
