7 Signs You Know You Have Fallen Out of Love with Your Job

What you use to enjoy about coming to work is disseminating.  You just don't have the passion for your work like you once had even though you may have repeatedly told others, "I love my job."  It happens, sometimes workplace changes aren't always a good thing.  But whatever is going on to make you feel like you just don't love your job much these days, don't take your issues out on loved ones.  So what might be signs there is no love for the job anymore?

1.  You stop taking interest in meetings.  No note-taking, no participation, and you often forget what your responsibilities are.

2.  You frequently show up late, call off, or take long lunches.

3.  You aren't the least bit interested in what your boss tells you about the job like company events, new acquisitions, procedure changes, etc.

4.  You don't bother making small talk with co-workers and avoid asking them questions related to the job.

5.  You are easily irritated with the workers and what they do and say at the job.

6.  Your family often witnesses you in a bad mood after leaving the workplace.  You are complaining about your job more than you ever had these days.

7.  You avoid opportunities to do anything more at the workplace than you already do.

When these signs and others consistently come up, it's time to soul search first.  What happened on the job that caused you to start feeling this way?  Note your findings.  Is there any way to make things right?  List what can be done.  Do you need to meet with someone in leadership?  Mention your observations and share solutions.    Give change some time to take effect.  If you don't like the results of your efforts, start looking for another job.

Knowing What You Want to Do After Lay-Off

After 30 years of being employed without ever experiencing a lay off, a guy whose name I will call, Fred, would be told one day that his work at XYZ company is complete.  His position will be no more and that he had best start looking for work elsewhere.

It happens, people lose their jobs sometimes with notice, sometimes without.  Once the warning has been received to find a different place of employment, most people hit the ground running.  However, there are those who are so shocked by rejection that they just sit there.  Very little effort is made to seek new employment, start up a business of their own, or help others with their ideas. 

Some, who have been recently laid off, might think they are really putting their best foot forward by checking a few job boards, going on periodic interviews, and attending a networking event "When I feel like it..." but the truth of the matter is, only the strong survive and are successful because they have found something that they truly want to do! 

The individual, who moves at a snail's pace headed toward something he or she doesn't really like, has little regard for other people's time, and doesn't believe that he or she can find something in their field, will miss out!  One's faith must be strong, believing that "I will get to where I want to be..."  All the while this person respects others and geuninely shows interest in helping meet their goals as well as feeling good about his or her role.  He or she must be willing to give up frivolous worldly pleasures to pursue what the Spirit within calls them to do. 

Innately we all know we are destined to do something, but how much time and effort do we put into doing what we know to be right (what might fulfill us mentally, physically and spiritually) as compared to what we logically think we should do or what others tell us we should do?  Most people go with what they think is feasible, easy, and doesn't require much leg work.

Consider your position, what you have been trained to do for months or even decades, is it truly what you like to do or is it just something you do to put money in your pocket?  Any job dismissal is a blessing in disguise.  It causes one to re-evaluate what is his or her true purpose.  You will never know what sincerely makes you happy if you don't make the time to re-discover who you are and what is it that you truly like to do.
