Consistent Problems on the Job - 7 Tips for Those Thinking of Leaving the Rat Race

Sometimes people stay on jobs too long while feeling miserable like they do in their relationships-- something has to give?  When you know that you have had more than enough frustration on the job and possibly at home too, you will continue to think negatively, then what do you do?

1.  You re-evaluate your skills.  Take out that resume and start going over everything that you could be doing elsewhere.  So if you have a background in real estate, you take what you already do and apply those skills to other career fields.  Find out what others have done online simply by searching your current career field and transferrable skills.

2.  Don't talk yourself out of starting your own business.  Review videos and articles created by business owners on what they did to achieve their goals.  Who knows, maybe that is what your calling might be.

3.  Stop bad-mouthing about everyone you work with.  Really, what good is that going to do?  The more you talk badly about them, the more upset emotionally and physically you will become and before long you will end up in the hospital with tubes up your nose or send someone who often listens to your complaints there.

4.  Discuss with a partner about your concerns which means that he or she may have to do more than what he or she is already doing or make adjustments.  Also, consider putting teenagers to work.  See here: Home Opportunities  What are they doing especially during long breaks besides the typical stuff?

5.  Check around your house for things you don't need, want, etc.  By doing this, you are also preparing for the future when you just might decide to quit or get terminated from your job.  The extra money will come in handy.

6.  Don't make yourself do things when you know it is in your power to change your environment.  Now if you have no options, then stick it out until you can create some.

7.  Pray even if you aren't the least bit spiritual, something or someone that is upsetting you calls for a higher power other than yourself.  So dust off the holy word, sit still awhile, and ask God to help you.  The opposition will arise and so will the negative attitudes when people around you know that you are considering on leaving a job, because all they can think of is, "How are we going to maintain this lifestyle?"  You just might have to cut out some things and if your money is paying for it all, then start training your family members to live on less early on before you make your announcement.

One Thing that Creates a Bond between Management and Workers

A simple, "How are you?" or "Did you do anything interesting this past weekend?"  When a person in a leadership position genuinely takes interest in a different employee each day with a thoughtful question that shows he or she is interested in the individual's hobbies or well-being, the manager will have workers that will look at him or her more positively.  They will think, "Well that was nice he/she came over and spoke to me."  You just might produce better workers as a result.  Something to think about.  -- Nicholl McGuire


Is Your Workplace Making You Sick?

Sometimes we work in areas that we don't know have problems.  From fresh paint on walls to dust mites here there and everywhere causing all sorts of redness and itching, these issues and others can distract you from your work and cause the company to lose money if you should have to call off work.  So how do you know if your workplace is making you ill?  The following basic list are ways you can tell.  Feel free to add more by commenting below.

1.  Is a heating or air conditioning duct blowing directly on you?
2.  Are you in a tight space with no breathing room or windows?
3.  Are you cramped due to not enough leg room or sitting in a small, uncomfortable chair or working at a desk that isn't the right height for you?
4.  Are there far too many papers stacked in the office?
5.  Do you often smell strange irritants that leave your throat dry, nose running, or cause some other health issues?
6.  Do you often feel sick to your stomach due to odors?
7.  Is the carpeting, dust on furniture, and other things often making you sneeze?
8.  Do you notice your breathing or heart changes its pace whenever you walk into an area?
9.  Do you feel like you are going crazy or have frequent headaches in certain parts of the work environment? 
10.  Is the color or d├ęcor of the walls, furniture or flooring stimulating a bad mood or vibe?

Some issues can easily be rectified by cleaning, removal, or rearrangement.  Others will need environmental tests and maintenance.  Bring up any issues with Human Resources or the onsite supervisor or manager.  It is your right to voice concerns, if left unaddressed by management then discuss with owners or corporate representatives otherwise seek different employment.
