Are you finding work dull and uninspiring and wonder if there’s something better out there for you? Well there absolutely is! If you’re wondering if it’s time for a career change, the National Careers Service advises asking yourself the following questions:
Are you enjoying your job?
Do you feel motivated by the people you work with?
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.
However 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 under-appreciated? “For too long” is probably the answer. So why not make a change?
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. People 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 you tend to miss opportunities to get yourself out of the rut you’re in. 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 never take action. Plan only the basics, i.e. what you need to allow yourself to take action, and then do it. That's how people achieve change.
