5 Things to Ask Yourself About Your Job

Let's be clear: No one is suggesting that you leave your job without a

back-up plan for food and shelter. Starting over is difficult. Even

Oprah Winfrey admitted the difficulty of starting something new, but

maybe — just maybe — it's time for you to think of pursuing and

preparing for a different path. It's tough, but it can also be pretty

great, giving you a greater sense of achievement, accomplishment,

peace and happiness in the long term. Check in with yourself from time

to time, and ask: 1. Am I getting enough challenges? Can you utilize

your skills and talents? Most importantly, can you still learn and

grow — or is this a dead end? 2. Do I have a healthy work/ life

balance? It's not unusual these days for someone to do the job of two

people. It's also not unusual for part-time hours to actually be full

time. You still need time for relaxation, recreation, friends, family

and hobbies — you'll be a lot happier, healthier and more productive

in the long term. 3. Does my job give me a sense of personal

fulfillment, of achievement? Do you love what you're doing and feel

like you're making a contribution to society, or is the job "just a

paycheck"? 4. Do I have a sense of community? Do you have good

co-workers? Is the environment friendly and supportive — or hostile,

with a lot of backbiting and fear? 5. Do I feel appreciated? If you're

experiencing unrelentless negativity and criticism, it will eventually

wear you down.
