Valentine’s Day is almost here, so love is in the air…loving your job that is! Here at EG Workforce Solutions, we’ve been in the business of Helping People Succeed for over 60 years, and we know that one major way people succeed is by loving their job. Not sure if you’re “in love” with your current positions, check out our tips. If these don’t apply to you, it may be time to give us a call and get you in a job that’s right for you!
You Don’t Dread Mondays or Watch the Clock
If we’re being honest, no one really likes Mondays, but one sign that you actually love your job is that you don’t dread when Monday comes around. You see Mondays as a fresh start to crush the rest of the week and achieve your goals. Not dreading Mondays means you’re also not getting caught up in the “Sunday Scaries.” These “scaries” are those feelings of dread and unease that creep in about the work week ahead and prevent you from enjoying your time off.
Along with not dreading Mondays, you also don’t spend your days watching the clock. When you don’t enjoy your job, or you feel disengaged from it, your days tend to drag, and you may often find yourself counting down the hours and minutes until you can go home. When you love your job, your days are productive and filled with tasks that help you move closer to succeeding in your goals.
You’re Proud of the Work You Do
If you can reflect on the work you do and feel proud, and like you’ve accomplished something with the time you’ve invested, you likely love your job. When your job is more than just a paycheck to you, know that you’re happy to be working in your role.
Whether you spend your days working directly with customers or you have more of an internal role, if you can look back on the work you’ve done and feel engaged and like you’re making a difference on behalf of the company, you’ll love your job.
You’d Recommend the Company to Family and Friends
Maybe the biggest factor that will show you if you love your job is if you’d recommend it to friends or family members. You most likely want the best for them, so if you can stand behind the work you do and the company culture strongly enough that you’d want your friends or family to experience it for themselves, you almost assuredly love your job.
Being “in love” with your job will set you up for success in the long run because you’re spending less time “just getting through your days” and more time being engaged. You’ll have an overall most positive attitude that will help not only yourself thrive and succeed, but tends to have a snowball effect throughout the organization. When you consider how much time you spend at work, it’s essential to find work that makes you feel engaged, proud, and positive. Loving your job can have a big impact on your levels of happiness, both in and out of the office.
