Some questions you need to ask yourself about boredom in the workplace.
Are you bored? Not just a clock watcher, but honest to goodness bored out of your mind when you are at work? I know that this is a touchy subject, but for some of us, it is our reality.
It doesn’t matter if you are the receptionist, a hygienist or a super-talented oral surgeon superstar. The bottom line is that many of us get bored at work. The question is-what should we do about it?
Seven questions you need to ask yourself:
Now that the questions are asked, you wonder, “Now what?” Me? I didn’t realize how BAD it really is until I wrote these questions.
So what are you going to do about it? Well, you can either just continue living for the weekend or you can figure out why you are bored.
One of the things I have learned along the way is that I am the only thing stopping me. Over and over I have heard sob stories about mean bosses and backstabbing co-workers. But, if I pull away the layers and look deep down inside of me, I see the truth. I am afraid. Afraid that I will fail if I try something new.
My suggestion is to pull away the layers and figure out what the real issue is. What will motivate you to challenge yourself? If the job isn’t doing it, what will your next step be? That is my call to action. Take a look at yourself and determine if you are bored. If you are, do some deep-down soul searching and figure out what you want out of life and how you are going to get it. If you are bored, you don’t have any goals. The remedy-set some goals.
