This 2019, there are a lot of things that could possibly happen. You will face tons of challenges at work, but some of them could also be positive. Either way, you need to learn from them to be better at your job. These are some of the things you can promise to yourself that you will do as you begin a new year.
Do something that you love each day
Whether you like it or not, several aspects of the job are recurring. You have to keep doing the same tasks all the time. Since you cant stop it from happening, the least you can do is to find something you love that you can also do each day. Whether it is stopping by an ice cream corner or watching an episode of your favorite show, it is good enough for you to remain committed to your job. You will feel like there is something good happening each day that balances out all the negative things.
Give yourself a break
If you are a workaholic, you need to find a way to take a rest. You deserve it and you need it. There is nothing wrong in being dedicated to your job, but your job is not everything. You also need give yourself time to rest. You can use it to relax, exercise, eat out or whatever you fancy. You can allot an hour or so each week for you to not do anything related to work. Whether you are busy or not, you have to give yourself this well-deserved break.
You need to give yourself recognition for a job well done. When no one else is there to praise you, you at least have yourself. Besides, there are times when you can get too hard on yourself even if you already did something great. You keep telling yourself that it is not enough. You might say that you are doing it to motivate yourself. However, at some point, you need to take it easy.
Learn something new
Again, your job is quite a routine. You keep doing the same things all the time. Therefore, you need to learn something new all the time. You can practice a new language. You can learn a new skill. You can start journaling. You can even go back to school. Our minds were designed to keep learning and improving. You have to challenge yourself to learn something new all the time.
Speak more and listen more
You might be too comfortable with your job that you are no longer challenging yourself. This year, you have to speak more so that you can do more things. You also have to listen more so you can get beautiful ideas from the people you are working with. Dont be afraid to make your voices be heard and dont worry if you will receive ideas you dont like.
This year will surely bring exciting things in your career. It is up to you on how you make the most of the opportunity you receive.
