Our careers are something that we have to carry through life and, they do, financially. But, think about how much financial freedom we actually gain through our career. For a lot of us, it isn’t that much. We still have to do the constant calculations to make sure that we stay within budget, and don’t go getting ourselves into any money trouble. But, trust us, money is just the start of the issue with our careers. Work is a necessity, but something that we don’t always want to do. There are many factors to this, some of which we’re going to explore today:
You Don’t Do What You Want To Do:
If you’re not doing what you want to do with your career, then how are you ever going to get to the point where going to work isn’t a complete chore? Even if it means taking a bit of a pay cut, we definitely recommend chasing your dreams in terms of your career. One way of doing this would be to contact an employment agency. It’s not always easy finding the job you want because there are too many conditions to it. You might have had to have a certain amount of experience or qualifications. But going through an employment agency can actually reduce all of the needs that a company has. You’ll generally find that they’re just desperate to get someone to fill a role, and all training will be given on the job. You’ll often find that they have more jobs that will suit you, and they’ll help you through the hiring process. It might be temporary work at first, but the majority of them always lead to a permanent career.
The Awkwardness Of “Work Friends”:
Work friends can be an awkward thing, no doubt. Do you only talk to them from nine to five? Do you get happy hour drinks with them? How about sending them a holiday card? The lines can feel blurred. But, we would definitely recommend befriending a person or two. Just having that one person that you can chat and pass the time with is so important if you feel like your day is dragging at a painfully slow rate.
There’s 0 Motivation:
We know that feeling all too well. Your alarm clock goes off in the morning, and all you can think about doing is pulling the covers over your face and never coming out. But, if that motivation doesn’t spike as soon as you get out of bed and get ready, then we’ve got a problem. If you’ve got 0 motivation, you need to think about option number one. You’re never going to be able to find motivation for a career that you’re not even interested in. Or, you could just go on a money chase. If you climb the ladder to the top of your career, you’ll often find things are much more interesting.
Life Is Holding You Back:
Life definitely does hold us back, we won’t deny that. Think of all of the things you want to do, but think you can’t because of your career. One of the biggest for a lot of people is travel. They want a life filled with travel, but how can they leave their job? Well, you could always save a few thousand to get you going, and then work in all of the countries that you visit. A self employed lifestyle can be a very fulfilling one.
No matter what the reasoning may be, careers can be difficult. But, with the tips above and some time, your nine to five will change for the better!
