Are You Happy With Your Work or Business?
Overtime we become used to doing the same thing over and over again, and yes it can become quite boring, or irritating especially if you’re trying to make ends meet. Whether you are in business or working for someone, you need to make sure that you are in the right place, the right job, and most importantly it’s something that you enjoy.
We spend half our day working if not most of it, whether it’s for our self’s, families, future, or our dreams, now if it’s something that you are not enjoying, you will not be happy, and it can affect your work, and on a serious scale can affect your personal and social life. How many times have we talked about incidents at work outside work?…we do it all the time.
Do you love what you do? Ask yourself this question, if the answer is yes than your good, if no than we need to look into this and how we can resolve this.
What determines happiness at work & business:
Your team: The team and the people that you work with plays a big part, you spend the whole day with them. You should be able to get along with them like house on fire, and enjoy your day. If you are all having fun and most importantly happy. You will notice that the work will get than, your time will not drag, and you would want to work more.
As a business owner, when recruiting for your business, besides the qualifications of an individual, also look into if the candidate will fit into your organisation, or will it disrupt your team.
Money: We all work for money, whether its our own business or working for someone else. Its imperative that you are earning well. At the beginning you will have to give time to your business to start seeing some good returns, and also same applies in your day job, if you have just started your career, you will need to give time to go up the career path with your promotions and opportunities that rise. But overall you need to be satisfied with what you are earning. If not than you need to look into alternatives or something else.
Many organisations also take this into consideration, and ensure that there employees are paid well and have good perks at work, as they understand if the employees are happy and satisfied they will deliver results for the business.
Balance: Having a decent balance between work and social life. This will clear your mind and you will be fresh again. Even if it means going for a small walks, or regular exercise, frequent breaks, or even just leaving the offices on time. By just working working and working, besides damaging your health, you will not be able to produce as much results as if you have a fresh mind.
Challenges: One of the reasons why we can become bored of our business or jobs is not having a challenge, as said earlier if we do the same thing over and over again, yes it can become boring. Look for challenges and always challenge yourself to achieve that extra goal or to make yourself that extra better. This will open up other opportunities for yourself and your business.
Overall if things are not right in your business or your job, no one else will change this expect yourself. If you are not happy about something, look into changing it.
