I can honestly say I’ve been here before – at the end of the year, feeling pressure to get things done before the Christmas break, and generally feeling unhappy at work…but what should you do about it?
I think it’s important to work out if it really is the job you’re not happy with, or the career you’re not happy with, or is it just some end of year tiredness sneaking in?
Whenever anyone mentions this type of issue to me, I always suggest they at least try to make it through to their break and then take some time…
You need time to get away from your daily routine, you need time to relax with your family and friends, and then you need to take some time to consider your future.
You may decide that your break was just what you needed and you’re ready to forge ahead with a new year. But if you decide that the role you work in or place you work at is not the right one for you (or even that your chosen career is not the right one for you – and that’s OK too), then you’ve certainly got some serious considering to do.
I recommend making a list of your strengths and the things you enjoy doing and then look for a role or workplace that embraces these!
Good luck to you all!
