Do what you love and you won’t work a single day, they say. And everybody is advising you to find a lovely hobby and turn it into a job. But as I remember reading laws is no hobby just like holding scalpels isn’t, as well. And what kind of people then decide to become lawyers, judges or doctors? How could we manage to find the job that suits us best? And what if we make a mistake? Unfortunately, there is no trial period in life and you cannot simply give up after working a day or two at a certain place. But still, how could you recognize when it is appropriate for a career change? Here are some of the things you need to consider first. After that, you better think well and make informed choices only, because in the reality there is no undo.
Does this job make you happy?
Life is too short for you not to be happy. That is why if this job only makes you sad and you go home, not only exhausted but depressed and gloomy, maybe you better find another one.
Is there something that challenges you every day?
If there are no challenges, you will soon get bored with the job no matter what it is. But what does challenge mean? Well, if you have some difficulties, but you find it exciting to work on them and to cope with them, then your job will be another adventure you take. And if you are going to work every morning, doing one and the same task, you will start feeling miserable sooner or later.
Ok, maybe you have found that you need to change your career, because you don’t like your job and you are not feeling comfortable with it, then think about the alternatives you have first.
