Having entered into a new year and decade, with the ongoing Australian bushfires, losing a basketball legend - Kobe Bryant and with the threat of a virus rapidly spreading across the world, a lot has happened in the time span of a few months.
Of course, not everything is always doom and gloom, but the point is no matter how much you prepare or plan, things can change rapidly and unexpectedly in a mere matter of minutes. With this in mind, it is extremely important for us, as individuals to be present in the moment and be grateful for the time that we have been gifted with. In other words, living your life to the fullest, whether that is by doing what you are passionate about or being in an environment and around people that bring out the best in you. Everyone’s version of living life to the fullest is going to be different.
If you think about where most of us spend the majority of our time, most would say work. That is why working somewhere you are happy at or at least aligns to your long-term goals is essential. Take some time to reflect on where you are and where you want to be. Is it perhaps time for a change or maybe not? If you are not where you want to be or unhappy with what you are doing, then change it.
Some questions that may help you to reflect:
- Are you still enjoying your role?
- Are you still growing? Is there still room for you to grow in the role or company?
- Are you passionate about what you do?
- Does this role align with your long-term goals?
- Have you become too comfortable and complacent?
- How happy are you? How happy are you when you go to work?
- Do you dread going to work
The list of questions can go on and on but use some of the above questions as a starting point.
