How to deal with a job you dislike

Wednesday, December 05, 2018

By Rajendra Prasad Yadav, Chairman & Managing Director, Genius Consultants.

In an ideal world, we’d all have our dream jobs at every period in our lives, but the reality is that everyone will go through periods of not enjoying their work. Out of necessity, one gets stuck in a job that is unbearable – and as a result, they hate life. It is imperative to know how one should sail through if they’re not ready to make the shift, but the day-to-day grind is driving them up the wall. It would help to enjoy and engage more with the work.

Changing the perspective
Too often, we think of 'success' or 'doing what we love' as an end. It's some destination that we must reach. What so many people fail to realize is, that both terms are more of an approach to the journey and not an end of the journey. One is 'successful' if they walk the path, always learn new things and grow.  One is 'doing what they love' when they see every moment as an opportunity.

Focus on the lesson, not the problem
If anybody feels like they aren't learning anything, that is nobody's fault. It's on them to create moments of growth and opportunity by paying attention to the little things around them. It's on them to create their own gaps, and it's on them to take their own leaps of faith. Growth is the result of how one utilizes the people around them and create opportunities for themselves.

Treat what needs to be treated right
To truly understand the organization from 360 degrees, view it from as many different perspectives as possible. To broaden the awareness more, make sure everyone “sees” the same organizational structure. By acquiring an accurate view of your organization’s structure, one can make better and unsoiled decisions by understanding how their decisions will impact every aspect of the organization.

Extending Helping Hand
Try doing a subordinate’s job when they go on vacation. It’s a great way to learn how one can improve their personal relationship with co-workers. See where repetitive tasks could be streamlined, notice where improvements are needed, pay attention to where bottlenecks in processes exist, and take note of where people seem frustrated with their jobs. These are all opportunities for management to make better decisions and improve the organization and in return improving own growth opportunities.
