How to love your job even if you don’t like it



Not everyone is lucky to get their dream jobs so you have to like what you do.

However, there are times when you hate your job and for some reason you cannot leave it either. So why not do something about it and not crib all the time?

These simple tips will help you deal with that sticky situation of a job even if you do not like it. Who knows, maybe you will eventually fall in love with it too?

1. List out the areas that need improvement

Make a list of what all you think can be better in your current job. Start solving those problems to make it less hateful for yourself. Jot down everything you do not like about your job and do not be vague.

2. Note down what you do love

It can’t be that you love nothing about your job. There has to be a grey area as well. So list that down like you did for cons.

3. Set goals with your supervisor

Set some inspiring and achievable goals for yourself, talk to your supervisor on what can be done because you want to feel motivated. A supervisor can give you a clearer picture on how you can get your act together and perhaps start liking your job. Ask for what better can be done from your end, if you can do some individual projects for your own growth and if that helps the company too then why not.

4. Ask for support

Everyone’s workplace can get overwhelming at times, you are not unique in that sense. If you are swamped with work or you are struggling with some aspect, consult a trusted co-worker. You could even be honest with your manager and any good manager will appreciate your honesty and may even guide you to the person who can help you out.

5. Use the benefits you get

Take those holidays you get and manage work accordingly. Make use of the perks you get. Some companies give self care packages too or give complimentary gym memberships for its employees, use them. You may eventually start liking your job.
