Five Signs You Need to Change Your Job

Mar 22 12:47am Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
You're reading Five Signs You Need to Change Your Job, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. The Perils of a Career That Doesn't Fit Few things can be more unpleasant in this life than holding a job that's just not suited to you. Jobs can monopolize so much of your time and energy. People spend so much time at work every day. If you have a job that's simply not in line with your interests, passions and skills, that can make existence feel truly miserable. It can make waking up every morning feel practically unbearable as well. If you have a job that's just not appropriate for your personality and goals, these signs may be a true wake-up call for you. 1. You're Just Not a Natural at Your Job If you don't feel like a natural at your job, you should pay attention and reevaluate it. People who are holding jobs that are appropriate often can handle them with ease and confidence. If everything about your position seems awkward and difficult, that's likely a warning sign. It probably means that you should be doing something better with your time. If a job is a good fit for you, you'll probably be a natural at it. If everything seems forced and complicated all the time, you should look at other options. 2. You Regularly Receive Criticism People who excel at their jobs tend to receive consistent praise. Others take notice when professionals shine. They also notice, however, when professionals regularly fail. If you constantly hear bad things about your work performance, it may be time to assess your situation. It may be time to admit to yourself that your current position just isn't cutting it. If you keep a position that isn't a good match for you, you sell yourself short. You also sell your company short. No one wins in these situations. 3. All You Care About is Your Paycheque If your job is nothing more than a paycheque to you, that's a clear sign that your heart isn't in it. Your goal should be to find a calling in life. It should be about more than just survival and paying the bills. Maintaining a job that makes you feel bleak and unfulfilled is no way to live. You need to find a position that brings you joy. You need to find one that gives you a little spring in your step every morning. Otherwise you could be setting yourself up for an existence of...

The Science of Behavioral Change: 3 Critical Steps to Make New Habits Stick for Years

Mar 21 12:41am Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement
You're reading The Science of Behavioral Change: 3 Critical Steps to Make New Habits Stick for Years, originally posted on Pick the Brain | Motivation and Self Improvement. If you're enjoying this, please visit our site for more inspirational articles. “Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.” – Warren Buffet It’s incredibly frustrating, isn’t it? You’ve invested time and energy into building this new habit. You’ve kept it up for weeks now, maybe even months. Slowly but surely, changes are beginning to happen in your life, and you start to wonder just how good things could get if you kept this up all year. What if you kept it up for five years? Or ten? And then it happens again. Life gets in the way. You skip a gym session, you eat a piece of chocolate, you forget to journal in the morning or do your Spanish homework. Either way, one slip turns into two, which turns into three, and suddenly…you’re back where you started. Which reveals an uncomfortable truth, the kind of truth that most people don’t like to admit. Habit change is hard, really hard. And most people are simply not going to keep up with our new habits for longer than a couple of months. To be honest, that used to be the case with me all the time. I’d be great at starting new habits, but three months in I would let the ball slip. And this happened over, and over, and over again. Fortunately, over the years I’ve learned a few tricks that allowed me to keep these new habits until they became unconscious and stuck. While I still slip up from time to time, I’m far more effective than I used to be. In fact, by keeping the following principles in mind, in 2016 I was able to both journal and meditate for 180 days straight. So without further ado, here are 3 critical steps to make sure that your habits stick for years! Know when it’s appropriate to set unrealistic goals When you are setting goals based on your new habits there are two things to keep in mind. Make your short-term goals realistic. These need to be broken down into bite-sized chunks that are manageable every day. For example, don’t start off by attempting to meditate for an hour a day, you’ll just burn out – start with ten minutes and add 30 seconds a day till you reach an hour. Make your long-term goals unrealistic. If your long-term goals aren’t big enough, th...
