The fact that you have a job in this economy probably started off as an exciting moment in your life. With time, you might lose some of that excitement and energy, especially if your job is one of those monotonous ones. I honestly don’t blame anyone who becomes bored and practically just goes in to do what needs to be done. When you had that initial boost of energy, it probably was because it was new. Now, after a few years doing the same thing over and over again, it is understandable to feel this way.
With that being said, there are ways you can find inspiration again without switching jobs. Doing handwriting retyping a thousand times a day can become frustrating, or you can just laugh at the terrible writing. Do not get down on yourself because it is a drag in the morning. Instead, apply these ways to help you find inspiration at work again.
1. Make a difference
We all need some kind of validation that we are making some kind of impact at work. This does not have to be on a large scale. If you were to leave work tomorrow, will there be a gap or will it simply be filled with something else? When you are asked to do manuscript typing, for example, go the extra mile and make sure your work is of the highest quality. This is how you stand out at work. It’s not about adding millions of dollars to the company or rewriting all the laws. Do what you are asked to do, but add some good quality to it. You have to find inspiration in your work. Not only will it be appreciated, but you will also become more excited about what you are doing.
2. New Goals
If you are merely going to work and coming back home without any real goals, it is understandable that you will become bored. Without meaning and purpose, you are simply doing a job you get paid for. Even if there are no new projects that you can throw yourself into, create some for yourself. Perhaps you can sort out that filing cabinet you’ve been meaning to do for a while. Ask other colleagues if you can help them in any way. Switch up the routine a little. You will be able to start something new again and it will rejuvenate you all over again. Even if you do this every now and then, you will see results.
3. Find Inspiration After Work
Finding inspiration outside of work can help with what you are dealing with at the office. Life is all about balance and while typing a manuscript you can look forward to something fun after work. Take a new class or join the gym if you will. No matter what it is, you want to switch things up a bit. This kind of activities makes life feel more interesting after you knock off work.
Even the most monotonous jobs do not have to make you feel stuck. Life is not just about a job and what you feel when you are there. Go to work, do your job and leave to live your life. It’s that simple.
