What Career Mindset Are You In?
Better late than never but HAPPY NEW 2022! January came & went in a flash!
So today for some self-reflection... My favourite thing to do.. well kinda'!
I thought this would be a nice one to start off 2022 as quite often we can fluctuate through different patterns in our careers without being present & thinking WHY?! Why do we at times feel run off our feet or snowed under with numerous jobs, then at other times feel we have just about everything under control?!
A lot of this is to do with our mindset & what else is going on around us. Quite often we bypass how we feel about our jobs, as it is what it is.. Our jobs/careers are where we spend the majority of our time.. So why not give our mindset on our careers a little food for thought & use a little self reflection on how we can progress.
- FEELING CONTENT?
There is nothing better to feel content in any parts of our lives! If you feel CONTENT right now in your career or job, give yourself a huge pat on the back.. You are clearly doing something that makes you super happy & gives you the job satisfaction. If things change & you don't feel as content, reflect on what has brought you to feel this way & start working on putting things back in control to make you happy again!
When feeling content it is the perfect time to put yourself out there & grow in anyway you can, this will help to keep you feeling happy in your position & give you a goal to work towards, which in turn can reduce the chance of you getting bored. Think of webinars, work shops or short courses in your area of expertise!
- ARE YOU JUGGLING?
Juggling is never easy, whether its running a house, family or business or all of the above, when things get too much you can loose sight on what makes you happy at work. Take a minute, a deep breath & grab a brew, you deserve it! It is time to prioritise what YOU need & get rid of what you don't. Try to introduce some structure & set a few goals to get yourself feeling back in control.
I wouldn't recommend any form of further training or huge career jumps until you prioritise where you want to be & feel more in control of your work-life balance. Once you feel like you are off the juggling stage, sit & make some fresh goals of where you see yourself future wise!
- ARE YOU DOING IT ALL?
Well good for you! You sound like you have everything under control & you like to do things rationally. Keep up the good work but don't over do yourself!
