Are you finding work a little dull and uninspiring and wonder if there’s something better out there for you? Well I can tell you, there absolutely is and you are not the only person looking for a ticket to a new fulfilling life.
If you’re wondering if it’s time for a career change, the National Careers Service advises asking yourself the following questions:
1. Are you enjoying your job?
2. Do you feel motivated by the people you work with?
3. Are you satisfied with your work-life balance?
If you answered “no” to any of these questions, perhaps it’s time to explore something more fulfilling.
The biggest question of all however is, will you regret it if you don’t? The saying goes that you only regret the things you didn’t do. In 2 years time, 5 years time or 10 years time, will you regret not having made a change?
How long have you been going to work putting yourself through a job where you feel undervalued and underappreciated? “For too long” is probably the answer. So why not make a change? If you do what you always did, you’ll get what you always got.
When opportunity knocks, will you open the door? Unfortunately too many people fall at the first hurdle. Why? Fear of failure, or of the unknown. So they plan. They wait until they’ve dotted every 'i', crossed every 't', answered every possible question and planned for every possible contingency before they take action. By waiting, most people tend to miss opportunities to get themselves out of the rut they’re in. Don’t be this person. Take a hold of these opportunities and start living a more fulfilling life.
Realistically, the situation will never be perfect. By all means, have a plan for how you’re going to achieve your goals, but don't overcomplicate things – and don’t get so caught up in the details that you don’t ever take action. Plan only the basics, i.e. what you need to allow yourself to take action. And then take action. That's how people achieve change.
