Do you enjoy what you are doing?

LoveSome of my clients are looking to make changes in their jobs. The questions I am being asked outside of personal relationships is regarding careers.
I am asking everyone the same question; do you enjoy what you are doing?

I have heard many times, when people are starting a new position it is like the honeymoon phase, everything is wonderful. Everyone is great but as time passes and the dynamics within the company changes, so is the initial impression.

Some individuals are quickly realizing what they are doing is not matching their goals or desires. Looking at moving out of the group or being promoted can be challenging. In an environment that is constantly changing and evolving for the best or the worst, it can be overwhelming to decide what to do.

We also need to have a new perspective on the fact that we are growing as well. As years pass so does our want or inclination for the job we desire change. What we loved to do can become monotonous, it could be the driver that makes us want to change jobs. I do not discount the fact that in some situations, it is not the job that is driving us away but the people we are working with.

We can also have a need to learn something new, something that can challenge us, keep us on our toes. The need to find something that will bring us the satisfaction we had on our first job.

On the other hand, you have people who love what they are actually doing. Their passion for their job, it is what drives them every day to do it. They are fulfilled and happy to do it, you can see it on their faces’ but also it translates in their work,

What makes you love what you are doing?
Would you trade what you’re doing for something else? If so, what would you like to do?
What makes you stay where you are?
