In the last two weeks we’ve spent time looking at different signs that it’s time to look for a new job. Here’s a quick summary:
Sign #1: You dread getting out of the bed in the morning
Sign #2: Your work relationships and performance are beginning to suffer.
Sign #3: You become "someone else" at work.
Sign #4: The position doesn't make use of your talents.
Today is sign #5 – You spend most of your time engaged in talking negative about your position or company (or both)
Yes we all love to commiserate over frustrating aspects of our jobs. That is not a big deal. It becomes an issue if the majority of your hours at work are spent feeding negative thoughts and generally complaining. Tune into what it is you are complaining about. Are you in an unfulfilling environment; do you not get along with the people you work with; what goals/values does your company have – do they match yours?
If you spend most of your work day, AND even worse time at home, talking and thinking negatively about your job, then it may be time to pack it in. Find a new career in an environment that feels more rewarding and in line with your talents. You can do it.
